Tourism shows signs of recovery
The willingness among Chinese to travel to popular tourist sites has shown signs of recovery, as the novel coronavirus epidemic continues to abate domestically.
Data from Fliggy, Alibaba s online travel service provider, show a recovery in travel plans for the upcoming Tomb Sweeping Day holiday (April 4-6).
From March 17-23, bookings for train tickets and scenic areas surged by over 100% and hotel reservations rose by roughly 30% compared with the previous week.
Currently, 3,700 A-level tourist sites have resumed operations nationwide.
Industry research suggests the desire to travel during the Labor Day holiday – which has been extended to five days (May 1-5) this year – will be even stronger.
According to Tongcheng-Elong, a major online travel platform, a surge in interest to visit popular tourist sites was seen based on searches for air tickets, train tickets, accommodations and scenic spot tickets during the holiday in early May.
If the situation of the domestic epidemic continues to improve, the public holiday in May will become the first tourism peak since the beginning of 2020, according to the report by Tongcheng-Elong.
