Corona measures relaxed in China

However, the Chinese are not yet returning to Switzerland

Thanks to the imminent lifting of the quarantine obligation, the Chinese will be able to travel around the world again. However, Swiss tourist resorts are not yet hoping for much in the short term.

For two years, China was practically cut off from the world. Only a few were able or wanted to enter the country, and the 1.4 billion Chinese were also largely stuck due to the drastic corona measures. That will change soon: From January 8, 2023, there will no longer be a quarantine requirement upon entry. As soon as this was known, searches for trips abroad on Chinese platforms skyrocketed.

This is also of great interest to Swiss tourist destinations. In 2019, the last full year before the corona pandemic, China was the fifth most important source market for Swiss tourism. 1.8 million overnight stays by Chinese tourists were recorded, most of them in the summer months. Every tourist from China spent 380 francs a day. No wonder the Chinese have been sorely missed ever since.
