Forbes China released a list of the 30 most developed cities for tourism in the Chinese mainland. The findings show that Beijing, Shanghai and Chongqing are the top three, with the capital taking the lead.


Compared with last year's result, the list saw Beijing secure its first place, and Chongqing and Guangzhou swapped their places. It is the first time for Chongqing to be included in the top three.


Shenzhen, Hangzhou, Tianjin and Suzhou remain at the same places, ranking from fifth to eighth. Nanjing fell out of the top 10 and ranks 11th this year.


Hefei and Foshan made their debut on the list this year, pushing Wenzhou and Zhuhai out of the list.


The results show that the top tourism cities of the Chinese mainland are located where the economy is developed, and where tourism is the traditional industry, such as in Guilin and Huangshan.


The Forbes results were based on analyzing the annual visits of inbound tourism and outbound tourism, tourism incomes, as well as the number of hotels and scenic spots in the city. One hundred cities on the Chinese mainland with the most tourism income were selected as the primary candidates of this year.
