Where Chinese travelers fly to ?
Even on a rainy cloudy day in downtown Manhattan, crowds of smiling Chinese tourist photos of their friends and family snapped next to the "Charging Bull," a three-and-a-half-ton bronze sculpture landmark in the Financial District in New York. Each time the masses began to thin, another Chinese group rose to the sculpture. A long line snaked down the road.
Shiny spots on the bull's surface clearly showed the tourist spots touch the most, including the hips and huge testicles. The "Charging Bull" is famous in China and replicated in several places, including Shanghai's financial district. Noticeably missing from the Shanghai version, but the bulls are disinguishing male characteristics. Among the people waiting to touch, photograph or be photographed with the famous rate recently you were Songlin and his family. Traveling with his wife and son and a large tour group of fellow Chinese tourists, said the first-time visitor to New York, why does he see what would appear to be a random local attractions.
"I heard about the Wall Street Bull, as well as Wall Street and Manhattan," You said he was hanging out with the required camera around your neck on the court in Bowling Green Park.
"I did it while learned in school, and I read the financial newspapers. 11:09 Then there was, I heard about the twin towers [of the World Trade Center] destroyed, and it left a deep impression on me." Reference Now, years later, it was his first visit to the U.S., a dream fulfilled to see what he had personally observed only once or heard about media. (See "What Chinese tourists think Of New York.") The Chinese are coming, the Chinese are coming! Workers in the Financial District are often confused (and maybe a little confused) by the hordes of tourists that flock to the very active area in the summer.
What, really, these tourists expect to see the mechanization of the global financial system?
Why is the bull worthy of pilgrimage? And more recently: What's with all those more Chinese faces show up in the convoluted masses? Clues in a global economy, the change in flow expendable income in China can be found, but remains both fascinating and unfathomable for many who are in their throes. Chinese tourists now present a rapidly expanding demographic: people who explore for the first time over the means and freedom to the world on your own - and where they go, and why, show the changing dynamics of the world and the vagaries of millions so far unexplored personal interests.
