Chinese tourists traveling overseas have begun to change their habits, with people now looking for relaxation and quality trips rather than just embark on frenzied shopping, china.com portal reported Friday, citing a survey by tourism information provider Travelzoo. About 75 percent of the survey respondents said rest and relaxation are their main objectives in overseas tours, the report said. Also, most people prefer to travel by themselves rather than going as part of tour groups, it said. Chinese tourists plan to spend an average US$8,200 this year in their overseas trips, next only to Australians’ US$9,340 in the Asia-Pacific region, according to the survey.
