Personal Traveler is a travel related service company which links with travel agencies in leading European markets in forming a customized package to fit the need of ?third-age? foreign travelers in main Chinese cities.

Since the Opening of China in 1979, the restrictions on incoming tourists have been lifted progressively. Moreover, we believe that with the additional investments by the governments of China and Hong Kong in infrastructure, and the increasing outward communication with the world, a base for substantial and continuous growth in the tourism industry has been created that will aid in the take-off of our business idea.

Furthermore, to provide the strongest link possible between Italy and Hong Kong, we have enlisted the support of the General Consulate of Italy to Hong Kong, Gabriella Meneghello, to act as the guarantee and give us legitimacy as a multi- national service company.

[...] Disorder in Tourism Market[9] There are disorders in the tourism market today, such as the existence of non-licensed one-day trip providers and tour guides. The Beijing Tourism Administration is experimenting with a new classification system to group Beijing's travel agencies under AAAAA, AAAA and AAA ratings, to standardize and maintain quality services. Under this system, visitors are able to easily distinguish travel agencies from star-rated hotels and restaurants. Tourism Industry in Hong Kong Visitor Arrivals According to the HK Tourism Board, visitor arrivals to HK grew to more than 23 million in 2005, an increase of as compared with the previous year.
