Fewer Chinese visitors? . . . thank heavens for that. It's not that we don't like the Chinese . . . it's just that there isn't any room . . . for Chinese.

Posters are missing the point that even if Chinese tourist volumes drop by 10%, per year, the overall year on year growth will still be positive - the only question is whether we will see lots more Chinese tourists in the future or whether we'll see lots and lots more!.
