China to Replace France as World's Top Tourism Destination by 2014

Using the 2008 Olympics as its launch pad, China is expected to replace France as the world's top tourism destination by 2014.

Experts interviewed by a foreign news agency said China received 22 million foreign tourists in 2006, excluding arrivals from Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan, compared to a mere 300,000 in 1978.

Those Olympic visitors are expected to spend about five billion dollars, according to China's tourist board.

Meanwhile, foreign tour operators and airlines are expanding services to meet growing demand in Beijing and across the country.

This year alone, China's tourism industry is expected to generate 78 billion dollars, 2.5 percent of GDP, a figure that could rise to 277 billion dollars by 2017, according to the World Tourism Organisation.

The broader impact of the thriving sector on the rest of the economy is huge, accounting for 440 billion dollars this year and up to 1.6 trillion dollars by 2017, the World To
