Added On October 5, 2020

China's tourism sector is seeing a strong rebound, buoyed by preferential tourism policies and with COVID-19 effectively under control.
Official data showed that 425 million domestic tourist visits were made on the first four days of the national holiday.
According to the Ministry of Culture and Tourism,  tourism revenue reached 312 billion yuan (about 45.8 billion U.S. dollars) during the first four days of the holiday.
Across China, over 1,000 tourist attractions are offering free or discounted tickets during the holiday.
According to an earlier report issued by the Meituan Research Institute, consumption at tourist attractions nationwide during the holiday is expected to rebound to around 90 percent of that in the same period last year.
The central Chinese city of Wuhan, once the epicenter of the epidemic, has seen an influx of tourists.
Three major train stations in Wuhan saw around 320,000 passengers on the first day of the holiday, a record high since the COVID-19 outbreak.
