MALE, MALDIVES - JANUARY 27: A Chinese family relaxes by the sea during their vacation on January 27, 2016 at Centara Ras fushi Resort and Spa, Maldives. China's top diplomats estimates around half a million Chinese tourists this year as the Maldives aim to lure 1.5 million Chinese annually by 2018. The tropical islands remain as one of the most popular holiday destination for Chinese travellers after Thailand's Phuket and South Korea's Jeju island. The number of Chinese tourists continue to climb over the past few years with an increasing number of guest houses popping up on the islands and high end resorts attract holiday seekers with short luxury package deals.
