Tourism is one of the most important industries in Spain. During the last four decades the Spanish tourism industry has grown to become the second biggest in the world. According to the data from WTO, 2007, Spain is the second biggest country in the world for tourism destinations, in terms of arrivals, only next to U.S. and the second in the world in terms of tourism revenue, next to France. At the same time, tourism industry is growing very rapidly in China. China has become a favorable destination for Europeans and people all over the world. Therefore, the tourism development between the two areas under the globalization environment has become the focus of attention.
