The Department of Tourism is training local tourist guides in Mandarin to effectively cater for the Chinese tourists, the parliamentary statement said.

South Africa annually receives approximately 100,000 Chinese tourists who usually travel as groups and stay longer - and their stay contributes to GDP growth in the country, said the statement.
