China's overseas tourism market is continuing to grow, with 122 million overseas trips made by Chinese tourists last year.

According to a new survey by the Annual Development Report of China's Tourism 2017, the number is an increase of 4.3 percent year-on-year. Spending was also up 5.1 percent on 2015 levels to $109.8 billion.

Thailand, South Korea, Japan, Vietnam, and the United States were among the top 10 destinations for Chinese tourists.

The majority of the tourists heading overseas have middle to high incomes, with three-fourths spending between 5,000 to 20,000 yuan ($760-3,040) on their travels. They prefer medium-priced or budget hotels and tend to choose self-planned and customized vacations.
