What is the world's favourite holiday destination?

A recent study by the United Nations World Tourism Organization revealed that 83 million people visited La Belle France last year, even more than its population of 66 million.

The lure of Alpine ski stations and Mediterranean resorts ensure that it has kept its top spot for every year that statistics have been produced.

France attracts at least 16 million more visitors than the United States in second place, with China, Spain and Italy completing the top five most visited countries.

Yet despite its overwhelming popularity as a holiday destination it seems that the French have a problem convincing visitors to part with their cash.

Tourism contributes 7% towards the country's gross domestic product, more than the car industry. But the average amount of money every visitor spends - US $646 (£423) - lags way behind every other country in the top 10 most visited list, bar Russia.

Visitors spend on average $1,884 (£1,230) in the US, $1,253 (£820) in Germany and $1,249 (£815) in the UK. Visitors to Macau, the south-east Asian destination known for its casinos, spend a staggering $3,213 (£2,100) each.

Some 83% of France's visitors come from other European countries, which may explain the relatively low amount spent per head. A lot of them come from neighbouring countries and often choose to camp and buy food from supermarkets, rather than filling the coffers of hotel and restaurant owners.

By contrast, only 55% of overseas visitors to the US come via their two immediate neighbours - Canada and Mexico - and according to the US Travel Association, the other 45% - the long-haul travellers - contribute 78% of all tourist expenditure, probably partly because they stay an average of 18 days.

(兰州讯)中国网民日前爆料,指娃哈哈集团捐给甘肃省天水市泥石流灾区的物资中,出现一批临近过期饮料。天水市秦州区委外宣办受访时,指这批物资由质监部门验收后已封存,而前期发放部分没有引起灾民不适。

中新社报道,微博网友“直播天水”近日爆料称,在甘肃天水一处暴洪灾害安置点内,有娃哈哈集团以公益之名捐赠的即将过期的“营养快线”饮料。

天水政府人员:已封存

该网友还公布了照片,饮料生产日期、保质期清晰可见。这批捐赠物资大多数生产日期是2012年12月8日,保质期8个月,即2013年8月8日到期。

天水市秦州区政府工作人员称,这批物资是由娃哈哈天水批发商以个人名义捐赠的,7月28日接受物资时,经当地食品药品监督管理局的工作人员查看后,没有质量问题才发放给灾民。现在因接近产品期限已被当地政府封存,不会继续发放。

It's still tough to think of Google as a hardware company.

But in the last year and change, it's been surprising everyone with a string of great products. There's the Nexus 4 smartphone. The Chromebook Pixel laptop. The Chromecast video streaming dongle for your TV.

And now there's an update to its well-reviewed 7-inch tablet, the Nexus 7.

The new Nexus 7, which is built by Asus, improves on the original in every conceivable way while still keeping the price low at a very reasonable $229. If you're looking for an affordable, smaller tablet, the Nexus 7 is the first device you should look at.

    第1和2选得不错,但是第3条只是一则评论,不是新闻资讯,所以在微博里粉丝也在质疑Nexus 7早已上市。望今后注意区分新闻和评论之间的区别。像第1条其实可以多翻译些文字,也能提供多一点有意思的内容吸引粉丝。
