The increase of outbound and inbound travels is another highlight of this Spring Festival. Short to medium tours to Southeast and East Asia are the hottest among outbound travelers, with cruise vacations being a dark horse.

Inbound travel bookings have increased more than tenfold compared to last year, thanks to the recent introduction of favorable new visa policies. Tourists from Japan, the United States, South Korea and many other countries have chosen to visit Shanghai, Beijing and other renowned tourism attractions in China. Harbin, one of the hottest destinations in the country this winter, which has also attracted the attention of foreign media, is also a top choice for overseas travelers.
