What may attract a Chinese to visit United States

Let us try to figure out what may attract a Chinese in China to visit United States of America. It is said that Chinese are gamblers. That is a very sweeping generalisation as I am sure that there are Chinese who hates gambling. But it is also true a significant percentage of Chinese are habitual gamblers. Some are thoughtless gamblers, gambling in casinos, lotteries and sweepstakes even when the odds are staked against them. Some are businessmen who take calculated risks which may be almost considered as a kind of gambling. Those who support the view that Chinese are gamblers points out that many Chinese, particularly those American-Chinese from Chinatown who visit Las Vegas usually visit for the purpose of gambling and American-Chinese find the special cheap packages that comes with weekend shuttle buses shuttling busily between the Chinatowns and gambling cities including Las Vegas and Atlantic City, irresistible.

Since gambling is illegal on the Chinese mainland, and if what is said above is true, then a popular destination for mainland Chinese will be Las Vegas, the gambling capital of the world. If so, they should look at Las Vegas vacation rentals.
