    Default Chinese Lunar New Year 2013 - money making time for BKK

    Today's 1 Feb 2013 Channel News Asia TV news.

    Bangkok is targeting wealthy PRC Chinese tourists for luxury tours and luxury shopping (e.g. Gaysorn Plaza) especially during the 2013 Lunar New Year holidays. It is rolling out the red carpet for mainland Chinese tourists.

    Quote:

    The number of Chinese tourists traveling overseas is on track to exceed 80 million visitors this year — a more than 70% increase over the same period one year ago. It is expected that this number will increase to more than 100 million people by 2015. In 2011, Chinese overseas tourists spent US$72 billion — and this number is expected to reach US$100 billion by at least 2015, if not sooner.
    25% of global luxury purchases are made by Chinese customers, according to HSBC.

    In Singapore, there is preferential treatment for mainland Chinese too.
    STOMP - Singapore Seen - CNY discount for items at Changi Airport offered only to China passport holders

    But Singapore's main aim at the mainland Chinese tourists during 2013 LNY would be the 2 casinos.
