Nepal tourism getting stronger
Nepal is luring Chinese tourists. Among the reason for such a boom are friendly international relations, visa-free entry, and growing air connectivity.
However, Nepal doesn’t want to stop there. In October, Chinese president Xi Jinping visited Kathmandu which greatly deepened China-Nepal relations as it was the first official visit to Nepal by a Chinese head of state in 23 years.
Moreover, Xi pledged to enhance connectivity and deliver more economic benefits – including tourism – to both countries. And more collaboration is underway.
PATA Nepal Chapter, together with Visit Nepal Year 2020 and Nepal Tourism Board, will be organizing the inaugural Nepal-India-China Expo in February 2020, which is expected to attract some 1,000 delegates from the three countries. Air connectivity is also strong, with direct flights from major cities such as Kunming, Beijing and Chengdu to Kathmandu.
Nepal attracts Chinese travelers from three main segments, namely recreational, adventure, and spiritual tourism.
