Meanwhile, China's international tourism revenues reached 114 billion dollars last year. That replaced Spain as being the second-highest amount in the world. The leader was the U.S. at 178 billion dollars. The world's total tourism income was about 1.4 trillion dollars in 2015, up 3.6 percent year on year from 2014.
