Currently, at the forefront of global covid recovery, China has seen promising growth in domestic tourism with outbound travels expected to make a strong comeback.
According to China Outbound Tourism Research Institute, the number of border crossings from Mainland China will not only soar but exceed its 2019 record, to a forecasted figure of 180 million.
China remains a key market for international tourism including Indonesia.
With global travel to resume inevitably, the AYANA team wanted to invest in upgrading their current site to include localized Chinese content including text and media, like its localized Youku videos. Conveniently located just 10 kilometers from the Bali airport, the team also wanted to ensure its accessibility is clearly communicated prior to booking.
Most importantly, it was also key that this website achieved better loading times in China to provide better service for travellers, if not friction-free.
Ahead of its launch, the AYANA team reached out to Chinafy to ensure that when launched, the localized site would perform strongly in China.
