Sample text

All inbound tourism tables take care to distinguish between waiguoren, foreigners, ‘outside-country-people’, tongbao, compatriots,13 and huaqiao, overseas Chinese. The original division of responsibilities between the two established travels services CTS and CITS falls along the ethnic distinction between Chinese and non-Chinese, regardless of the countries of residence or the passport held. This peculiar form of organization of information and services is reported but generally not questioned in texts dealing with tourism in China.

Wong 1982: 68) For the years 1956 to 1965 approximately 200,000 overseas Chinese from 80 different countries and 1 million Hong Kong and Macao Chinese are thought to have been handled by CTS (Fu 2004: 43). Since 1978 the number of border-crossings of Chinese without a Chinese passport has increased almost year by year, with 1989 (Tiananmen upheaval) and 2003 (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS))24 being the only exceptions. For 2002, almost 85 million border-crossings were recorded for compatriots from Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan.

Tourism has been a major tool in achieving these goals. The task of CTS before 1978, to show overseas Chinese visitors the splendour of socialist development was not an easy one with a limited number of guests arriving and little to show to them, hampered by inadequate tourism infrastructure on top. Citizens of Hong Kong and Macao who did not even need a visa but just a travel identity card, would visit relatives living not too far away from the border more frequently before the Cultural Revolution.
