What is Uwai?
UWAI helps connect local businesses with Chinese tourists and visitors by translating and promoting your business before, during and after their journey. When your QR Code is scanned, your customer goes directly to your profile in their language.
The United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) estimates that spending from Chinese tourists overseas now represents 21% of the global tourism spending. Chinese traveller spends on average more per person per trip than tourists from any other country in the world. “Tourism” impacts every aspect of an economy and is no longer limited to outdated perceptions of tourism being tours and activities. Education, product purchases, services exports, education exports, local food and beverage shops, supermarkets and retailers all benefit directly from international tourism.
