As the Chinese middle class continues to grow, more Chinese are eager to travel. For a country that was mostly closed off to the rest of the world for a thousand years, the Chinese are now looking abroad for their holidays.

Ctrip, China’s largest online travel agency, saw bookings for overseas luxury hotels surge nearly 50 percent year-on-year, according to the Ctrip Hotel College Data Research Centre.

Tokyo tops the list of the most popular overseas destinations, with the number of bookings for hotel rooms in the city expanding by nearly 100 percent over the same period last year, according to Ctrip. Phuket, Bangkok and Chiang Mai are also in this year’s Top 10 Chinese destination.
