The surge in visitors from China will continue into the next few years, with New York and Los Angeles expected to see a nearly 200% increase in travelers from the world’s most populous country, according to a new study. and will continue to hold those positions into 2023, according to a study by the Oxford Economics Co. on behalf of the InterContinental Hotels Group.

Chinese travelers have already surpassed Americans in total outbound international trips. But with the Chinese middle class continuing to grow, the study predicts that the travel trend will continue.

“In total, Chinese travelers made over 67.5 million trips in 2014,” according to the report. “Annual Chinese arrivals are expected to total nearly 97 million by 2023 at an average annual growth rate of 5.1% over the ten year forecast horizon.”

Los Angeles County’s tourism industry is projected to welcome 50 million visitors a year by 2020, but most of the jobs created by the surge in visitors will be low paying gigs such as maids, hotel clerks, waiters and amusement park attendants.
