Tourism in Switzerland

by Tu Qingqing
(Chengdu, China)



Switzerland is one of the famous places for tourists, not only because of its beautiful landscapes, but also its natural skiing places. According to a survey, tourism accounted for an estimated 2.9% of Switzerland's gross domestic product.

There are a lot of mountains in Switzerland, but the famous ones are the Alps, which are in the south of the country. They are also the highest mountains in Switzerland, whose highest point is 4,634 m. What's more, the lakes around them also give people a strong impression, such as Lake Maggiore which is only 195 m above sea level.

And Switzerland is also a very safe place. Switzerland's independence and neutrality have long been honored by the major European powers, which helps it avoid damage from wars.

However, it is also a very "expensive" country, and the cost of living here is higher than almost all of the other countries in the world. I think that is why there are so many tourists here, but a less number of people move to live here.
