China Outbound Tourism by Holly Galbraith

China outbound tourism is obviously an important aspect of marketing in China and to Chinese travelers. There has been a lot said about China outbound tourism and about the Chinese travelers, CM has even posted these articles:

CM has been following China outbound tourism trends for some time now, but we admit we are not experts on this subject, which is why we got excited when we found this Podcast from Holly Galbraith. She interviewed George Cao co-founder and CEO of Dragon Trail Interactive. We have known about Dragon Trail Interactive for sometime now and GoYvon even went to an event last year in Thailand about Asian & China outbound tourism that was organized by Dragon Trail.
