Japan is top spot for National Day travel
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.
