XI'AN, China, Oct 16 (Bernama) -- Domestic tourism in China saw a robust rebound over the just-ended Golden Week holiday. In particular, tourism was booming again in Xi'an, the ancient capital. According to the data released by the Xi'an Municipal People's Government on October 10, during the Mid-Autumn Festival and National Day holiday this year, Xi'an received 14.7481 million tourists and recorded tourism revenue of 11.14 billion yuan. From a horizontal comparison of Chinese cities in terms of the number of tourists received, Xi'an made the second rank of the top ten popular tourist destinations in China.
This year's National Day holiday is the first Golden Week since China has returned to normalcy with the epidemic prevention and control. The 8-day holiday initially drove people to travel, contributing to gradual recovery of the transportation sector, such as travel via airlines, railways and automobiles. Such strong travel demand led to a significant recovery in holiday tourism.
