Hangzhou, capital of East China's Zhejiang province, once again led domestic cities in tourist satisfaction, according to the 2022 National Tourist Satisfaction Report released by the China Tourism Academy recently.
It is the second time that Hangzhou has won the honorary title.
Tourist satisfaction measures the overall development of the tourism sector in a city. It takes into consideration transportation, dining, accommodation, shopping, entertainment, attractions, travel agencies, and public services.
Every year, the China Tourism Academy conducts a survey on tourist satisfaction in major domestic tourist destination cities.
According to the report, the top 10 cities in terms of tourist satisfaction in 2022 were Hangzhou, Qingdao, Chongqing, Xiamen, Jinan, Wuhan, Wuxi, Xi'an, Beijing, and Suzhou.
Hangzhou is known for its scenic West Lake, rich cultural heritage, and beautiful natural scenery, and it has been actively promoting the development of its tourism industry in recent years. The city's efforts to improve tourism services and facilities have been recognized by tourists, which has contributed to its high ranking in tourist satisfaction.
In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on the tourism industry in China. Despite the challenges posed by the pandemic, Hangzhou has been able to maintain its high level of tourist satisfaction, which is a testament to its resilience and ability to adapt to changing circumstances.
As the tourism industry continues to recover, Hangzhou is poised to continue to be a top destination for domestic and international tourists alike.
