Chinese people embark in 415 million domestic trips during Lunar New Year holiday

Published on : Monday, February 11, 2019

During the Lunar New Year holiday, Chinese people made 415 million domestic trips, marking an increase of 7.6 percent from the same period last year.

 

Domestic tourism during China’s biggest holiday brought in revenue of 513.9 billion Yuan (58.88 billion pounds), which is an annual increase of 8.2 percent. Border crossings to and out of China went up by 11 percent from the same period in 2018 to 12.53 million, with Chinese residents crossing the border for personal reasons 7.22 million times, going up 16 percent.

 

The strong growth in domestic and international travel and spending over the Lunar New Year period, or Spring Festival, highlights the gradual rise of Chinese tourism in spite of a slowing economy.

 

Top overseas destinations for Chinese residents this Lunar New Year were Thailand, Japan, Vietnam, South Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, the United States, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan.

 

Last year during the Spring Festival holiday, 386 million trips were made on domestic category, contributing to an increase of 475 billion Yuan in China’s travel revenue.
