Examining ecotourism experiences: Chinese tourists in Australia

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference paperConference paper

Abstract

China has been the world’s biggest outbound tourism market since 2012, yet we know little about Chinese outbound tourists and, especially, their experiences in foreign destinations. This study examines outbound Chinese tourists’ ecotourism experiences in Australia. We identified seven major experience dimensions, namely sensory, emotional, aesthetics, entertainment, escapism, education and relatedness dimensions, all of which impacted on Chinese tourists’ overall ecotourism experiences in Australia.
