First of all, we’re booking tickets to China right now.

Second, why? We sort of got it when a Smurfs went to France (though the theme park closed after two seasons), but why China? According to the Wall Street Journal:

In certain circles, it is believed that the Smurfs were a Communist plot. What better fit than Maoist China would there for a beings who wear the same clothing, live in a cooperative, and contentedly work for a common goal under the authoritarian leadership of a man whose white beard bears a striking resemblance to that of Karl Marx.

George Orwell, you will be deafeated by gnome hats and a roller coaster.
