The modern-imperial nation of China has many elements that attract millions of tourists every year. In fact, their tourism industry is one of the wealthiest across the globe. The core reason behind its success is the fact that their interesting yet complex language is one of the most spoken and influential in the planet (there are approximately 1,299 million Chinese native speakers in the world and almost 200 million non-native speakers), which also reflects the essence of the 5000 thousand-year-old culture, ancient philosophy, and heritage of the local citizens.

Not to mention that China is the cradle of exquisite gastronomy, beautiful giant pandas, eye-catching ancient architectural wonders, unique historical importance -like the Silk Road path-, and it's one of the main the modern epicenters of global business nowadays.

Experiencing Beijing's Forbidden City like a native citizen, and many more

Overseas tourists, and even the ones that come from satellite countries like Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore, and Japan, affirm that China offers, to any kind of visitor (from tourism-passionate, students, newlyweds, and businesspeople), to experience the adventure of their lives, which can be magnified even more by having a linguistic background. Some honorable mentions of the most famous touristic places are the Forbidden City, the Great Wall, the Giant Wild Goose Pagoda, the Dujiangyan Panda Base, Lantau Island, the Victoria Harbour, Hongcun and Xidi Village, and countless more.

A linguistic background can make a student connect with new friends, get a new job or boost his CV in his local country, understand the architectural and philosophical legacy of the Chinese culture as a citizen, and enjoy even the 100% local gastronomy while learning to order real Chinese food.

For a businessperson, to master the Chinese language is crucial too. The Chinese market gathers hundreds of millions of potential new customers and powerful business partners in the world's most populated country (1.38 billion, according to The Balance), with the world's largest economic engine.

China’s tourism industry, in 2018, reached more than 60 million visitors, according to CEOWORLD magazine (which positioned the Asian country as the 4th most visited in the world that year just after France, United States, and Spain, respectively). On the other hand, reported that the number, that year, even ascended to 134 million international arrivals. What is consistent in both reports is the evidence that China's tourism sector is growing more than ever.

As if it were not enough, some institutions forecast 2.38 billion trips inside China in two years. This boost will represent an increment in the tourism industry's contribution to the national GDP and there will be available more jobs for the population in multiple areas.

To have an idea about the magnitude of tourism in China, local authorities reported that, during the Dragon Boat Festival, nearly 90 million trips were made last year.

As a final tip, China's authorities, local citizens, and tourists that loved their visit recommend touring the country and attend festivities like New Year's Day, the Spring Festival (Traditional New Year). Moreover, travelers embrace holidays like the Hanshi Festival, the National Day, the Qingming/the Tomb-Sweeping Day, and the Mid-Autumn Festival, just to name some of them.

Those festivities can be considered as public holidays, yet only people who master Chinese as a native speaker is able to truly engage with the tiniest details of these events and even with traditional festivities, as the Double Ninth Festival, for instance.
