A record number of travelers are set to travel within the country during the upcoming National Day and Mid-Autumn Festival vacation period, Yang Feiyue reports.

The number of Chinese travelers opting for trips lasting five days or more is likely to reach a record high during this year's National Day holiday, the country's largest online travel agency, Group, predicts.

The first day of the week-long holiday will overlap with the Mid-Autumn Festival, which also falls on Oct 1 this year, meaning the public holiday will last eight days.

People who take six days off after or before can enjoy 16 days off, which is great news for long-distance domestic travel, experts say.

All outdoor tourist attractions in Northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region reopened in September, when the region also allowed the resumption of interprovincial travel, the Xinjiang department of culture and tourism reports.

Travel within the mainland has returned to normal with pandemic controls, says Peng Liang, a researcher with Group's big data lab. And the recovery has also boosted domestic travelers' confidence.
