Dear MEL Topic Readers,

China hails ‘first Antarctica flight’ for its tourists

Do you have any idea how many tourists visit Antarctica a year? There were about 45,000 visitors in the last season between November and March. And the number is expected to rise. Why?

Chinese appetite isn’t limited only to food. Chinese tourists are seen anywhere in the world, Hawaii, London, and Moscow, and now in Antarctica. In fact, the number of Chinese tourists visiting Antarctica has been on the rise steadily, and now the second only after Americans. Most of the tourists to the seventh continent sail from Argentina’s southernmost port of Ushuaia. Recently, Chinese travel agency organized a tour to fly rich and progressive Chinese tourists to the continent, from Hong Kong to Cape Town, South Africa to Antarctica, and even to the South Pole.

Visiting the icy continent is one thing, but landing on the South Pole is beyond extreme, not to mention the airfare for this non-routine flight arrangement.

Enjoy reading and think if you want to add a tour to Antarctica on your bucket list.
