    I read somewhere that chinese tourists spend more per person shopping than most Europeans, in the ball park of $4K per person.

    It's interesting that China imposes higher and higher luxury taxes, while Thailand wants to abolish them and profit from Chinese "Shopper" Tourists.
    I also wonder how long this trend is sustainable and what this does to domestic demand in the longer term to China, while other countries reap the benefits.
