By Su Zhou | China Daily | Updated:2017-03-08 07:36The top tourism authority has introduced new initiatives to support transportation and promote digital technologies to ensure the travel and leisure industries keep pace with changing consumer trends and advances in technology.The China National Tourism Administration released its five-year plan on smart tourism on Tuesday, which states that all 4A and 5A-rated scenic spots in China will be able to provide online booking services, electronic tour guides and free Wi-Fi to all tourists by 2020.In addition, tour buses, cruise ships and scenic spots with large numbers of tourists will have real-time monitoring systems set up to address security concerns.Xue Yaping, spokesman for the administration, said the plan was drafted due to the changing habits of tourists.”China has entered a new era of mass tourism. By 2020, the number of overall visits made each year by Chinese tourists is expected to reach 6.7 billion,” Xue said.”Tourism consumption will be more diversified, including family tours, self-planned tours, high-end tours that require high-quality services, and leisure tours that provide unique experiences. We must utilize modern technology and adjust the tourism service model to meet the growing demand for detailed travel services and products,” he said.According to the plan, digital technologies will be adopted to improve tourists experiences, from smart hotels offering check-in via mobile devices to real-time collection of tourist data for tailoring personalized hotel or sightseeing services.Chen Jin, a professor at the University of International Business and Economics School of Information Technology and Management, said the smart tourism plan will help to develop China into an attractive tourism destination for international travelers.”Overseas travelers tend to research travel information online before they go somewhere, but many tourism destinations in China dont pay much attention to their online image. The lack of information online does not help to attract overseas tourists,” Chen said.”For Chinese travelers, transportation will be much more convenient than before, with tourists able to access all information and pay bills via their cellphones.”Yao Hua, a frequent traveler from Changzhou, Jiangsu province, said she finds it convenient to travel in eastern China, but not so convenient in western China.”I was born in Jiangsu and really like to visit places with different landscapes, such as the Gobi Desert,” Yao said. “However, many hotels do not provide online booking services, so sometimes, I have to ask travel agencies for help when I am looking for travel information.”Related StoriesSmart tourism makes travel easier for tourists in China and abroadExperts share experience and insight in smart tourismSmart tourism makes travel a breeze in KunshanSmart tourism makes travel easier in KunshanPhotoPhotographer transforms female construction workers into elegant ladiesNPC deputies speak up for the grassrootsCliff walkway decorated with 3D imagesBig data: Top word used by Xi during 2013-2016 two sessionsA glimpse of womens makeup in ancient ChinaWomen across the country celebrate their dayLatestYangchuanosaurus to appear on Chinese Dinosaur StampsTibet to spend big on fighting povertyChongqing panda blood donor is a lifesaverChinese scientists plan wearable device that can listen, speakPhotographer transforms female construction workers into elegant ladiesState Council NewsPremier calls for government function to be further transformedPremier Li joins discussion with delegates from GuangxiExclusiveBig data: Top word used by Xi during 2013-2016 two sessionsXis leadership: Empowering women; inspiring equalityDeveloping China, using intellectual capitalEditors picksFirst national park receiving strong legal and financial supportLawmaker calls for end to issue of left-behind childrenTen photos you dont wanna missTen photos from across China: Feb 24 – March 2SpecialCementing countrys rule of lawCircuit courts in ChinaBACK TO THE TOPHOMECHINAWORLDBUSINESSLIFESTYLECULTURETRAVELWATCHTHISSPORTSOPINIONREGIONALFORUMNEWSPAPERChina Daily PDFChina Daily E-paperMOBILECopyright 1995 -var oTime = new Date();
