US luxury travel destinations honored by very affluent Chinese travelers
Pierre Gervois at Shanghai Travelers' Club Luxury Travel Awards 2013

Jan 30, 2013

SHANGHAI, China - The Shanghai Travelers' Club has the pleasure to announce the results of its 2013 Luxury Travel Awards.

The results come after a vote by the 3,400 Chinese members of the Shanghai Travelers' Club, who honored the very best luxury hotels, travel agencies, destinations and luxury lifestyle experiences all over the World according to the tastes of affluent Chinese outbound travelers.

Awards have been presented in three categories: World's Best Luxury Travel Experiences, Asia-Pacific Best Luxury Travel Experiences and USA Best Luxury Travel Experiences.

The U.S. is a very popular luxury travel destination for affluent Chinese tourists, who distinguished great luxury shopping experiences (South Coast Plaza, Best USA Luxury Shopping Mall), historical hotels (Waldorf-Astoria, Best USA hotel), luxury lifestyle exeriences (Crowds on Demand, World's Best Luxury Lifestyle Experience), and travel agencies (Luxe Travel Hawaii, Best USA Luxury Travel Agency), to name just a few.

Pierre Gervois, CEO of China Elite Focus and President of the Shanghai Travelers' Club, said: "The U.S. is now a very popular luxury travel destination for wealthy Chinese tourists, who since early 2012 have been able to obtain individual tourists visas with a quicker and simplified process. Luxury hotels and luxury travel agencies will benefit from these new consumers, while luxury retailers and the high end real estate market could benefit even more."

Mr. Gervois added: "It's time for the luxury travel industry in the United States to realize that their future Chinese guests are not looking for discounted trips anymore and expect a high quality of service in the very best hotels and luxury retailers. They enjoy travelling independently, making their own itineraries and trying more sophisticated luxury lifestyle experiences."
