Last time i checked "Chinese" was a nationality, not a race.
Of course they count less than a Western tourist because they live there, jesus christ

do you even know what tourist means? Someone living there does not count as a tourist.
But someone from other parts of the country counts. So in your opinion, a tourist in Hangzhou from Beijing, which is 1000 miles away does not count as much as a tourist in Bangkok who is from Vietnam?

Do you have logic?

A guy from LA visiting NYC does not count as a tourist????

Maybe in your mind, China is just as big as a small country, which only host international tourists. LOL

Do you have a source that the majority of Chinese travelers in Hangzhou are living 1000 miles away from the city?
The Vietnamese are not even in the top 12 of tourist arrivals in Bangkok.
How many tourists in Hangzhou are English, American, Australian or German?

Yes and i'm also a lot less nationalistic than you.

Kinda but less than a international tourist.

Galveston, Texas is a famous resort city in the US, but vast vast majority of tourists are other Americans, so it doesn't count either. Now, Acapulco, Mexico, is famous worldwide. That's different. Every nationality visits there

If you exclude Hong Kong and Macau, China only hosts 1.5 million more international tourists than Thailand

But most international tourists in Thailand are from China. What is your point?
We are talking about wealth for cities. Hangzhou is much more wealthy city than Bangkok. Why do you have a problem with that

Most people don't understand the growth of major Chinese cities. For example, Shenzhen is not a very famous city internationally. But its economy is close to that of HK. And it has some of the major IT giants like Huawei and Tencent.

by your method, a visitor from Shenzhen, which is less than 20 miles away to HK counts as international tourist, but a visitor from Shanghai, more than 100 miles away, to Hangzhou does not count as tourist.

How strange is that
