The article presents suggestions from travel agent Karen Allen, retail manager of Aspen Travel, for selling China as a tourist destination. She says that it is not easy for a tourist to travel around China on his own, therefore there is a lot of potential for agents to attract such tourists. She says that there are endless sightseeing opportunities in the country and agents should know about them. She suggests to work with specialist operators to gain a good knowledge about the country.
