Nearly 80 percent of affluent Asian consumers plan to increase spending on travel, according to a new report from Agility Monitor.

“Luxury shopping has seen a steep rise in Japan given all the Asian travel there recently; however luxury brands need to appeal to the travelers as a whole so they connect with them and can be a preferred choice at home and abroad,” said Amrita Banta, managing director of Agility Research.

“These affluent Asian travelers are looking for good service/quality and uniqueness, and that's what luxury brands needs to provide – local Chinese speaking staff, ability to communicate on WeChat, etc.”
