Record 415 million tourists & 513.9 billion yuan for China during Spring Festival holiday

Published on : Wednesday, February 13, 2019

China’s tourism industry grew in both revenue and number of visitors during the Spring Festival holiday, as per Chinese Tourism Academy’s data. China recorded a total of 415 million trips made by tourists (7.6 per cent) and received 513.9 billion yuan (76.14 billion U.S. dollars) in tourism revenue (8.2 per cent) between Feb. 4 to 10.

 

 

Backed by higher incomes and better transport facilities, more and more Chinese people opted to travel during the Spring Festival holiday.

 

 

 

 

Various folk activities, including flower fairs, temple fairs and dragon and lion dances, were held to celebrate the holiday and attract tourists.

 

 

 

 

An increasing number of people visited cultural places during the festival. The number of visitors to museums, galleries and libraries surged 40.5 per cent, 44.2 per cent and 40.6 per cent, year on year.

 

 

 

 

Sanya, Xiamen and Harbin were the top three destinations for Chinese tourists making longer domestic journeys. Chimelong Tourist Resort, Shanghai Disneyland Resort, and Mount Huangshan were the hottest destinations, according to a report by Lvmama.com, an online provider of tourism service.

 

 

 

 

The number of Chinese who traveled abroad during this year’s holiday increased 28 percent year on year. Many of them came from first- and second-tier cities like Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen and Nanjing.
