China's provinces hold lessons for India's states in how they are making a concerted effort to generate tourism revenues, investing in infrastructure, hotels and marketing. "The grottoes is a big part of our tourism push, and we are getting travellers from Asia and India too," says Wang Lin, deputy director of Shanxi province tourism development committee. And internationally, 122 million Chinese go abroad ever year. In 2016, more than 40 lakh Japanese tourists travelled to China, compared with 2 lakh to India. Around 7 lakh Indians travelled to China, according to Chinese statistics, while only 1 lakh Chinese made the journey in the opposite direction.
