A new report has underlined the ever-growing influence of Chinese tourists on the global market.

Conducted by Spain-based Amadeus IT Group SA , the study observed that China will soon overtake the US as the largest overseas tourism market as measured by travellers.

"Chinese travellers' passions for outbound tourism are unstoppable," reflected Jiang Yiyi, director of the China Tourism Academy's international tourism development division.
