Another Side Effect of the Year of the Dragon: Increased Tourism in the U.S.

Tim wrote about the side effects of the Year of the Dragon and here is another one: increased tourism to the U.S. While Chinese traditionally go home for the Lunar New Year, a growing number are going abroad, with top destinations being Europe, the U.S., and Australia. China’s National Tourism Bureau is expecting the number of Chinese traveling abroad for the holidays to be 60% higher than the previous year. Chinese students are said to be another source of tourism, as parents join their children to see the U.S. during the New Year holidays.
