Around 104 million people flocked to domestic tourist sites during China’s holiday week, according to the country’s culture and tourism ministry.
The figures relate to the first four days of the holiday — known as “golden week” — and were published by state-run news agency Xinhua on Tuesday.
Citing the ministry, Xinhua stated that the tourist influx would create around $6 billion in revenue.
Tuesday is the final day of golden week.
The background: Although coronavirus cases were first reported in China, the country now appears to have got its outbreak under control.
Last month, Wuhan, the Chinese city at the center of the country’s epidemic, began returning to normal life.
China has reported more than 83,000 coronavirus cases, including 4,637 deaths
