Chinese citizens on average spend 4.9 hours online for leisure, according to the Green Book of China's Leisure, which was unveiled in Beijing on Wednesday.

Those born in the 1970s-80s mostly took 1-3 hours off a day for relaxation, while those born in the 2000s used 5-8 hours for leisure.

The book was compiled by the Tourism Research Center, Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, and explores the country's leisure industry development from policy, market needs and city angles.

Per capita leisure spending was at 5,647 yuan ($865.12) among Chinese residents.

Livestreaming witnessed explosive growth in user numbers and satisfies the public's need for leisure, especially during the pandemic.

Livestreaming user numbers reached 560 million as of March 2020, accounting for 62 percent of all Chinese internet users, the book said.

Tourism has increasingly contributed to high-quality leisure for the public, the book pointed out.
