For Chinese tourists, who love nothing more than a trip abroad to soak up the culture and splashes on luxury goods, the recent decline in the value of sterling is as much a 10 percent reduction on all spending in the UK.
Ctrip said the new policy of multiple entry visas to two years implemented by Britain also helped to attract Chinese travelers.
“I was thinking of a holiday destination because my 13-year-old daughter will have her summer vacation soon. I had almost decided on Japan, but now I think Britain can be a good idea because it can be cheaper, “said Xiao cherry.
