According to estimates from the Data Center of the Ministry of Culture and Tourism of China, the 3-dayDragon Boat Festival holiday, lasting from June 8 to 11 this year, saw a total of 110 million domestic trips in China, marking a year-on-year increase of 6.3%.

Provinces like Guangdong, Hunan, Zhejiang, Guizhou, and Yunnan hosted dragon boat races. Tourists increasingly preferred flexible and personalized travel options, enjoying life through slow-paced travel, in-depth experiences, and leisurely relaxation.
Destinations such as Yunnan, Qinghai, Gansu, Inner Mongolia, and Guizhou became popular choices for young people for self-driving tours and summer vacations.
