The British tourism industry has joined with others worldwide who want to attract Chinese holidaymakers. London, Manchester, Birmingham and surrounding areas join forces to promote a unique tourism experience to Chinese visitors as promised by the promotion campaign.
The project, called ‘Experience England’, will offer tailored packages for Chinese tourists looking to visit the cities as well as trips to picturesque English villages and countryside hot-spots such as The Lake District.
The initiative will offer a seamless holiday experience for Chinese visitors, providing a one-stop-shop for flights, hotels and transport between destinations alongside a range of fixed and flexible itineraries in multiple English destinations.
The packages will be available via leading Chinese travel provider, Qunar.com, enabling Chinese visitors to discover English landmarks, icons and culture including: shopping trips to London’s West End, a VIP trip to English Premier League Champions, Manchester City and a tour of Shakespeare’s birthplace in Stratford.

According to figures compiled by London & Partners, the Mayor of London’s official promotional agency by 2025, the number of Chinese visitors to London is expected to increase by over 100 per cent.

London’s world-class attractions, shops and restaurants makes our city a fantastic choice for Chinese visitors looking for a unique holiday experience” London’s Deputy Mayor for Business, Rajesh Agrawal said to local newspapers.
