With China recently becoming the largest outbound tourism market worldwide, it has become key for destinations to adequately cater for this burgeoning group of travelers.
The traditional approach to trip preparation requires careful planning; searching the web, printing out instructions, and mapping out the locations. This is usually done prior to the trip or leaving the hotel for the day.
Well heeled Mainland travelers are also avid users of smartphones.
Porting and optimising existing content for mobile offered the best solution to the challenge.
This allows tourists to access valuable location information and maps anytime, anywhere right from the palm of their hand.
