Outbound travel from China’s mainland during the Labor Day holiday period reached a three-year high this year, according to data released by travel technology company Travelport.
Among the top 10 destinations during this period, long-haul stops like the UK and Canada have gained popularity, with the U.S. claiming the second spot, Travelport data showed.
Travel bookings for the Labor Day period increased 470% this year compared to 2022, while outbound bookings from China’s mainland in the first quarter increased by 331% compared to last year, said Travelport.
Travelport observed that for the rest of the year, tourists from China’s mainland are taking shorter holidays as most trips span between two and four days.
As a result, Hong Kong and Macau are the top two destinations this year for which China’s mainland travelers have made the highest number of bookings, according to Travelport.
