Chinese RV Travel Fuels Campground Growth
With the development of China’s tourism sector, recreational vehicle travel has become a widely-used method in China, according to China National Radio.
In some big cities such as Beijing, rapid development of the tourism industry has fueled RV campground construction.
RV travel is the cheapest way to travel compared with other methods such as by yacht, individual vehicle travel or business class flights. Research shows that a family of four can save 74% in travel expenses by traveling in a RV. To sum up, RV travel is the smartest choice even after the price of a RV, relevant taxes and rising oil prices are factored in.
However, RV campground construction lags behind the rapid development of RV travel.
At present, many people cannot find a place to park their RVs. Under this condition, RV campground construction is an urgent task for some regions where the tourism industry is developing rapidly.
The Huairou International Auto Campground is Beijing’s only auto campground. The facility, which meets the five-star RV campground standard drafted by the Federation Internationale de Camping et de Caravanning, provides services including camping, RV rental, leisure, food and accommodation. RVs provided by this facility feature advanced sewage-disposal technology.
It is said that nine additional auto campgrounds will be built in Beijing in the future.
