During the Golden Week holiday, in the first week of October, nearly 515 million domestic tourist trips were registered through the home of the Great Wall of China, one of the New 7 Wonders of the World. 


According to China’s Ministry of Culture and Tourism, domestic tourism revenues totalled 389.06 billion yuan ($60.36 billion) by the end of the week. Although revenues fell by almost 5% year-on-year, these are numbers that set a good mark for post-pandemic tourism. 


Official numbers also show how tourism recovered to 70.1% of the pre-pandemic level, since the Golden Week holiday is one of the most important and busiest travel seasons of the year.
