Youyi Port, a China-Vietnam border port in Pingxiang City, south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region has witnessed influx of travellers during May Day holiday. The number of inbound and outbound passengers during the holiday is expected to exceed 25,000.
"One-day round trip will be easier, and it won't be in a rush," Zeng Chang, a tourist from Guangdong Province said, "I have some regrets because I was in a hurry today. I would like to have an in-depth tour in the future."
Liu Shiping, a cyclist from Chengdu in Sichuan Province, rode along the highway by the China-Vietnam border from Dongxing, Fangchenggang. "This route is very popular now, especially for the cyclists who want to see the scenery on the border. We have come all the way just to have a look at the magnificent scenery of rivers and mountains," said Liu.
Youyi Port is an important exit and entry channel for tourists, as well as a main land channel from China to ASEAN destinations, with frequent cross-border personnel and goods exchanges.
"The registration of outbound tourists is very positive, because Vietnam is a trendy tourist destination in China," said Liang Yunyan, general manager of Guangxi Pingxiang Heping International Travel Agency Co., Ltd, "Meanwhile, Vietnamese tourists like to visit Nanning, Liuzhou, Guilin, Zhangjiajie and Beijing. These places are very popular among them."
