Holiday for lovers

Felix Chaudhary
Monday, May 19, 2014

A HOLIDAY with a difference would best describe the first ever romance themed tour by a group of Asian tourists to the country this week.

Twenty Chinese couples will embark on an eight-day tour, the highlight of which will be a special ceremony at Port Denarau tomorrow — a special day for lovers in China.

"This is a day which means love you forever and 'nothing can change my heart to love you, which are sentiments couples share with each other," said event co-ordinator AJ Yang.

"And to make this day memorable, this ceremony will be staged in Fiji for the first time."

Mr Yang operates a travel company in China called the Fiji-China Economic & Culture Exchange Centre Limited.

About 90 million Chinese visitors travelled around the world in 2013 and the number was expected to increase significantly over the years.

"Based on the friendly relationship between Fiji and China, and being optimistic about future expectations of the Chinese outbound tourism market, the Fiji-China Economic & Culture Exchange Center is attempting the themed concept travel using the unique tourism resources to attract Chinese tourists."

Mr Yang said there were plans to roll out more themed holidays involving Chinese tourists.

The event will be covered by Chinese broadcast, print and online media in an effort to showcase Fiji to a wider audience in mainland China.
