Ja­pan is top spot for Na­tional Day travel

China Daily (Canada) - - NEWS CAPSULE -

The Na­tional Day hol­i­day ended Thurs­day, and Ja­pan was prov­ing to be the most pop­u­lar over­seas des­ti­na­tion for Chi­nese main­land tourists dur­ing the seven-day pe­riod, ac­cord­ing to a re­port from Ctrip, China’s largest online travel agency.

Based on the com­pany’s book­ing in­for­ma­tion, Ja­pan will top the over­seas hol­i­day des­ti­na­tion list ahead of the tra­di­tional hot spots of South Korea, Thai­land, Hong Kong and Ma­cao, Tai­wan and the United States.

Com­pared to the hol­i­day pe­riod last year, the num­ber of main­land visi­tors to Ja­pan will be dou­ble, ac­cord­ing to a state­ment re­leased by the China Na­tional Tourism Ad­min­is­tra­tion on Sun­day.

The in­flux of Chi­nese visi­tors has been a welcome shot in the arm for Ja­pan’s econ­omy.
