BEIJING, Jan 2 ― Travel in China flourished over the three-day New Year's holiday, with 135 million domestic tourist trips, up 155 per cent from last year, while domestic tourism revenue rose to 79.73 billion yuan (RM51.6 billion), data released yesterday showed.

During the New Year holidays, more than 128 million passenger trips were made on China's transport network, up 78.4 per cent from 2023 and 33.1 per cent from 2022, according to Ministry of Transport figures reported by state media.

Cold weather across large parts of the country did not deter people from flocking to music festivals and concerts, while group outings of families increased, the government said, adding that the popularity of ice and snow leisure in East China, Central China, South China and other places had increased.

Provinces in the north such as Heilongjiang took advantage of wintry cold, promoting ice and snow tourism and extending the operating hours of key scenic spots, subways and buses, the ministry of culture and tourism said.

Beijing also gave out vouchers to help stimulate holiday demand and spur the economy, as urban ice and snow-themed projects and theme parks have become increasingly important drivers of economic revenue for many cities.
