Chinese New Year

 

From The Yorkshire Times.

 

Yorkshire is celebrating the Chinese New Year with news of a huge increase in the number of Chinese visitors to the county.

Research by Visit Britain shows figures have more than doubled since 2012 when 9,000 Chinese people chose Yorkshire as a holiday destination, compared to almost 20,000 in 2016 – a massive 122 per cent increase.

According to recent global research, the Chinese have a positive opinion of Britain, ranking it fourth overall compared to 49 other nations.

The same research reported that apart from the UK’s favourite big attractions like stately homes, Royal palaces and Big Ben, Chinese tourists are attracted to the ‘beauty of the landscape’ and the feeling of being ‘connected to nature’.
