Two-third of the globe’s most visited destinations are located in China, according to a survey by travel research company FourFourSecond.
The survey of nearly 1.5 million people in 24 countries and territories, including Japan, the U.S., Australia, and Canada, found that more than two-thirds (67 per cent) of the country’s tourism industry is located in the country.
In addition, more than one-third (34 per cent), or 1.9 billion people, live in the countries that host more than 50 per cent of China’s visitors.
FourFour said it used a combination of interviews, surveys and websites to gather the data.
“We’ve found that many of the most popular places to visit in China are concentrated in the cities, with relatively few destinations located outside the country,” said Neil Kornacki, managing director of FourFour.
“This is not surprising considering that these cities are home to some of the biggest industries in China and the vast majority of the population lives within them.”
Including all tourist attractions in the survey, there were more than 3,000 Chinese-run hotels and motels with more than 5,000 rooms, according the company.
Fourfour says more than 70 per cent are privately owned, which suggests that some people in China feel safe in staying in hotels and other hostels rather than going to public transport.
It also said there were nearly 4,000 public-service agencies and universities, including universities in the Chinese province of Jiangsu.

The country’s top-ranking attraction is the Grand Central Station, which houses the world famous Forbidden City.
According to the FourFour survey, about two-fifths (45 per cent or 1,500,000 people) of those who visit China in 2014 had never previously visited China.
The survey also found that most people who visited the country were in their 30s or 40s.
“China’s economy has grown in leaps and bounds over the last few years, and tourism has exploded over the past decade,” Kornicki said.
“Tourism is growing because of a strong and growing middle class, but it is also driven by growing demand for accommodation, food and entertainment in China.”
According to travel agency TripAdvisor, China had a record $2.1 trillion (RM5.8 trillion) in revenue in 2014.
That was a rise of 10 per cent on the previous year.
In 2013, it was $2 trillion.
