Wellington businesses are being urged to become 'China Ready' before up to 10-thousand new Chinese tourists visit the capital this cruise ship season.

It will be the first time Hong Kong-based Explorer Dream will visit, on seven separate trips. The ship carries 2800 passengers - and half will be Chinese.

Tourism reporter Tess Brunton finds out if businesses will be ready in time.
