China on track to be world’s top travel destination
We’ll always have Paris — but China is poised to be the hottest vacation spot in the world.
Leading travel research firm Euromonitor International predicts there will be 1.4 billion trips made in 2018, up 5 percent from last year.
By 2030, international arrivals are expected to spike by another billion.
France’s fall from grace could be part of a bigger trend in European travel, which has been rocked by terrorist attacks across popular tourist sites.
And stateside tourist traps had better pay attention: Euromonitor predicts that travel to America could take a hit amid rising trade tensions between the US and China.
