Contrary to common belief, Chinese are highly adventurous when it comes to food. But how do they find your restaurant?
Competition to attract Chinese tourists is intense - and growing fiercer. Not only is China the world’s largest source of international tourists, they are also the highest spending tourists.
But with almost all cities in the world trying to get their share, the question is obviously how to be seen and stand out - and how to persuade them to make the decision to stay more days even before they have arrived.
Shanghai Jungle has developed a tried and tested China FIT marketing solutions to ensure that our clients are seen and stand out - and that Chinese tourists actually visit and stay longer.
Modern Chinese are no different than the rest of us: Some love art, some are hooked on history and others love natural sciences - and so on.
But museums in China leave much to be wanted. This is good news for museums and attractions all over the world, who witness a surge in Chinese visitors indulging in their passions.
Shanghai Jungle has developed a set of high quality, easy-to-implement and cost efficient solutions for museums to attract Chinese tourists - and to give them a great visitor experience.
Chinese tourists spend more on shopping than any other group of tourists. Until recently getting their business was simply a question of paying their guide the best commission. A simple but expensive way to get them to your shop.
But the shift to independent tourism means shops needs to find a new way to attract the tourists.
The bad news: It is more complicated. The good news: With the right marketing any shop can now get a share of the Chinese business - and avoid paying any commissions.
For Western hotels getting their share of the emerging Chinese FIT tourism means adapting the sales and marketing beyond Chinese travel agents to direct sales to the tourists.
In principle this is straightforward: Just like Westerners use booking.com and hotels.com
so Chinese use their own booking websites: qiongyou.com, tuniu.com, ctrip.com
- to name but a few.

Few people love food more than the Chinese. And Chinese are curious!
Forget the myth that they only want to eat Chinese: It is the result of past decades group tourism targeted towards the lowest common denominator.
The modern Chinese FIT tourist eats roughly 1/2 of all meals at local restaurants - with the explicit purpose of trying local dishes and cuisine.
