How many tourists visited Hangzhou during the Spring Festival holiday? On January 10, the reporter learned from the Hangzhou Holiday Office and the Municipal Tourism Big Data Center (Tourism Economics Laboratory) that during the seven-day holiday of the Spring Festival this year, Hangzhou received a total of 4.7878 million Chinese and foreign tourists, which represented an increase of 2.9% over the previous yea, and the total tourism revenue reached 6.102 billion yuan, which means a year-on-year increased by 5.04%. Meanwhile, the quality of tourism in this city was shown to improve obviously. All this culminated in the number of 1,386,700 tourists who checked, which represented an increase of 21.8% year-on-year, and in the high consumption in cultural and entertaining activities, which showed a year-on-year growth rate of 61.26%.

The tourism during the Spring Festival holiday this year featured a wealth of old-fashioned festive activities from the scenic areas to the countrysides across Hangzhou, embodying the fusion of cultural and travel effects and driving the growth of the consumer market for cultural tourism. The rich old-fashioned festive activities made the whole city of Hangzhou filled with strong festive atmosphere and warmth, and the fascinating local festive folk art attracted a steady flow of tourists to the scenic spots and villages.

The spotlight of the country tour was the visit to scenic spots along the Hangzhou-Huangshan express railway line. This railway line newly put into operation connects 7 5A-level scenic spots, more than 50 4A-level scenic spots, and more than 10 national-level forest parks, which allows the tour to “the three rivers and the two banks” during festivals to become a new fashion.
