Ctrip users have booked trips to 90 countries and regions through the online platform for the week-long holiday in early October, said the report.

 

 

The domestic tours will continue to boom this year as Chinese people are more willing to travel in homeland to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China, Peng said, also underlining a series of measure to boost cultural and tourism consumption.

 

 

The first-tier cities including Shanghai, Beijing and Guangzhou remained the largest sources of visitors while county-level cities marked a faster growth in terms of tourist numbers. More than half of the travelers will be young people aged between 20 and 40, while nearly one-third of tourists will be children with their parents, the booking data showed.

 

The Chinese will also make millions of outbound trips during the holiday thanks to an increase in direct international flights and convenient visa policies, according to the report.
