Spring Festival holidayChina’s tourism is likely to receive a boost during the coming Spring Festival holiday. More than half of China’s young people have plans to travel during this period with many eyeing overseas trips, a survey showed Friday.

 
According to the survey conducted by the China Youth Daily, 51.2 percent of the 2,004 respondents said they would go out during the week-long holiday starting Feb. 7, the eve of Lunar New Year’s day, while 26.9 percent of them would prefer staying home. Others have not decided yet.

 
The travelers believe going out during the festival is a good opportunity to relax, while those defending their trips home argue that it violates the traditional value of family reunion.

 
Among the expected travelers, a little more than 40 percent choose to travel outside the Chinese mainland, with Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand as the most popular destinations, followed by Taiwan, Hong Kong, the United States and France.

 
Leading online travel service provider Ctrip predicted that a record 6 million Chinese would travel overseas during the 2016 Spring Festival holiday.
