2018 Canada-China Year of Tourism

A Year to Remember

Why 2018 is an important year for two dynamic countries.

From coast to coast Canada is recognized as one of the most beautiful countries in the world. With a diverse landscape that stretches from the red sands of Prince Edward Island to the breathtaking Rocky Mountains in British Columbia it’s no wonder millions of people from around the globe visit the land of the free every year.

Canadians are always welcoming visitors from around the world and embrace the notion of forming lasting relationships with other countries. In 2018, for example, the Canada-China year of tourism strives to actively promote improving the relationship between Canada and China.

So, what does the Canada-China Year of Tourism really mean and how did it come about?

In September 2016, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Chinese Premier Li Keqiang declared that 2018 would be the year of Chinese tourism in Canada. In fact, the two governments set a goal of doubling the number of over 610,000 Chinese tourists that visited in 2016 by 2021. This will be a year to celebrate the great history of Canada as well as the bond that our country has with China.

The Niagara Region

While Canada is full of amazing places to visit, the Niagara Region is one of the most popular tourist destinations for travelers. Home to Niagara Falls, one of the world’s most stunning natural wonders, this region in particular has become a must-see tourist destination for visitors of all ages.

In addition, some of the most popular tourist attractions in Niagara are located just a short drive from our very own Sherkston Shores Beach Resort & Campground. For instance, you can sample wines from world-renowned wineries in the nearby area of Niagara-on-the-Lake, cycle through the many bike paths that connect Niagara’s five communities, experience world-class fishing in Lake Ontario and Lake Erie, or visit historic sites scattered throughout the region.

Other Nearby Resorts:

The Georgian Bay

With the sheer size of over 5,700 square miles, the Georgian Bay is sometimes referred to as “the sixth Great Lake,” and is therefore an ever-popular destination for visitors from around the globe.

Because of the gorgeous grayish-pink granite shoreline, people are drawn in by the thousands to this freshwater playground, including boaters, anglers, and kayakers. As you explore, you’ll also discover plenty of festivals and events, fabulous restaurants, boutique shopping, and breathtaking natural beauty.

Other Areas of Ontario

There are also plenty of other destinations across southern Ontario that are just as popular with native Canadians as they are with our visitors. In Prince Edward Country, you can discover scenic natural beauty at Sandbanks Provincial Park, or explore quaint coastal towns. Or explore the artsy town of Stratford, located in a rich agricultural region also known for its excellent farm-to-table cuisine.
