Shanghai-based online travel operator Ctrip on Tuesday signed a memorandum of understanding with Victoria Racing Club from Melbourne, Australia, to jointly develop tailored sports tours.

The Melbourne Cup Carnival with a history of 157 years is Australia's most prestigious annual thoroughbred horse race and a grand traditional festival. It attracts more than 330,000 tourists every year.

A new international tourist center established by the club will include mandarin guide services for Chinese tourists and help them get involved in carnival activities, it announced in Shanghai.

The carnival starts in early November every year and tickets will be available on the travel operator's platform.
