(ECNS) -- A total of 295 million domestic trips have been made across China during the May Day holiday, representing a 7.6 percent increase compared to the previous year and up 28.2 percent from the same period in 2019, according to the Ministry of Culture and Tourism on Monday.

The total expenditure of domestic tourists reached 166.89 billion yuan( about $23 billion), an increase of 12.7 percent year on year and 13.5 percent compared with the same period in 2019.

An increasing number of destinations in lower-tier cities, including Liuzhou in Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, Zibo in Shandong Province, and Tianshui in Gansu Province, have gained popularity, according to the ministry. Rural ancient towns like Xijiang Qianhu Miao Village in Guizhou Province and Hongcun Village in Anhui Province were highly favored by visitors. There was also a noticeable increase in the remote tourism market.

With the resumption of air routes, the implementation of measures facilitating entry, and an increase in the number of countries with mutual visa exemptions, inbound and outbound tourism has rapidly recovered.

Data shows during the May Day holiday, the total number of inbound and outbound tourists reached 3.672 million, with 1.775 million inbound tourists and 1.897 million outbound tourists.
