Each Australian region’s tourism bureaus will also have an opportunity to highlight specific destinations through a series of accompaniment videos,

 “Show Lo and Rainie Yang are extremely popular within Greater China. Their appeal, magnified through this new online drama series, will create a great platform for us to promote the very best of Australia,” Tourism Australia Managing Editor Andrew McEvoy said in a media release.

The stars’ arrival will also spur a series of social media promotions and campaigns to help showcase Australia as an attractive holiday destination for the nation’s fastest-growing international tourism market. Having attracted more than 540,000 Chinese visitors to Oz in 2011, the market is currently worth $3.6 billion to the tourism industry.

“This campaign is another example of the power of advocacy through social media and digital platforms in tourism marketing, allowing us to reach an international audience through the web which they are actively using to plan and book holidays,” said Mr McEvoy.
