The number of Chinese tourists who go to Paris is five times the number who go to London.

Today's China Daily explains why fewer Chinese torusts come to Britian than go to Paris.

As Birtain “is not a signatory to the 26-country Schengen Agreement, those wanting
to enter Britain as tourists need to apply for a separate visa. That
means many Chinese tourists who visit the continent give Britain a miss,
and the number of Chinese tourists who go to Paris is five times the
number who go to London.”

“The cost of a British tourist visa for those on the mainland is 800
yuan, compared with the cost of a tourist visa for France of 60 euros
(500 yuan) that allows the holder to cross into other the countries in
the Schengen Area.

In addition, applicants for the British visa are required to lodge
their application in person at one of 12 offices, and this can involve
considerable travel. True, those applying for a Schengen visa can face
the same logistical difficulties, but having to apply for two visas at
two different points must act as some kind of deterrent.”
