According to the Children Air Travel Report released recently by China’s major online tourism service platform Ctrip, in 2016, the younger age trend of outbound tourists has further expanded and more parents are taking two children for trips overseas instead of one due to the two-child policy.
The number of children in outbound tourism has undergone an 82 percent growth in the first quarter. The flight tickets data show that Chinese children have traveled to 132 countries and regions.
The report shows that as more and more children travel by air, the younger age trend of child travelers keeps developing. In the first quarter of 2015, children under 6 accounted for 48 percent of all the children travelers; while in the first quarter of 2016, the figure has grown to 51 percent.
Post-70s and post-80s Chinese parents believe that travel is an important form of education and should begin from an early age. Now, more and more Chinese children travel abroad at a young age.
According to the report, Japan, South Korea, Southeast Asia, Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan are frequently visited by young tourists. The top 10 favorite outbound tourist destinations for children are Hong Kong, Taipei, Bangkok, Singapore, Phuket Island, Seoul, Tokyo, Osaka, Chiengmai and Macao.
