This is due to the convenient travelling conditions for Chinese citizen and the appreciation of the Chinese yuan, attractive foreign retail and tourist markets,which enable them to purchase these goods both physical and online.

Another reason for the surge of spending overseas on luxury goods is due to the high cost of these products on the
Chinese mainland,which is more expensive than the US, France and Germany.
