What else do you call a one party state with a politburo?

In China's case? Market capitalist dictatorship.

But in its present Xi era incarnation, it is far removed from the ideals of communism.

China's big holiday travel season light so far

Gee I wonder why that might be.

@Sandy: Yes, please stay in China. I don't want you jamming up my trips around Japan. What a great time to travel.

My last time in Kyoto was so crowded it was nearly impossible to enjoy. I don’t blame the abundance of Chinese that visit - it’s a beautiful place. Must be great about now.

@Toasted: Nothing against travellers (whatever nation they hail from) but maybe it's not the best idea to be heading off, at the moment.

If a traveler follows the science and wears a face mask, keeps 2 meter distance from others, washes their hands often, uses sanitizer there is little risk. Plenty of elites, government officials, academics, and celebrities are still traveling. There is a certain degree of risk but it can be mitigated with careful planning and precautions.

China is not communist.

Good news. The negative effects of overpopulation and ease of travel have become abundantly clear.

What a great time to travel.

In what sense?

that are going to welcome mainland (Communist) Chinese back as soon as they can. Pure greed over morals, these companies.

Why do you keep telling us about your travel? I don’t see what point you are trying to make make. Is it a trolling thing?

It will actually be safer for them to stay in China. Plus, they can boost domestic spending.

Considering the thumbs-down I've already got for this comment, I'm assuming these people want Chinese tourists to come to Japan.

Unfortunately, there are a lot of grubby, unethical companies in Japan and elsewhere (hotels, tourist resorts, retail etc) that are going to welcome mainland (Communist) Chinese back as soon as they can. Pure greed over morals, these companies.

Many rely on Chinese tourists to survive, cobber.

As long as they stay within China.

Don't come to Japan. Not wanted.

As long as they don't come to Japan everything is fine!
