China’s May Day holidaymakersThe East Asian cities of Seoul, Bangkok and Tokyo were the most popular destinations for China’s May Day holidaymakers, according to statistics from the China National Tourism Administration (CNTA). These cities enjoyed the strategic advantage of being closer to China. They can be reached within a five-hour flight, the tourism administrator says.

 
Other destinations like Singapore and Bali in Indonesia were also a hit for Chinese tourists during the three-day May Day holidays.

 
For the first time, the average duration of stay for overseas holidaymakers at each destination rose above two days, the CNTA quoted data from tourism agencies as saying.

 
About 56 per cent of the tourists who did not travel in groups chose to stay more than one week abroad, 12 percentage points more than for the same period last year. Their reservations ranged from performances, entrance tickets to amusement items such as underwater diving.

 
China has been the world’s largest outbound tourist market since 2012, according to the CNTA.
