Travel and consumption in China rebounded over the three-day weekend, the first national holiday since the government relaxed travel restrictions after controlling most new coronavirus outbreaks.

Residents made 102 million domestic trips over the three-day ‘Tomb-Sweeping’ holiday, up 145% from the same period last year when the country was still reeling from the initial pandemic outbreak. Travel was 95% of the level in 2019, before the pandemic, according to a government statement.
