The upcoming Spring Festival (Feb 2-8, 2011) will see overseas tours account for a bigger market as travel-happy Chinese sign up for new destinations, analysts say.

The Scandinavian Peninsula, West Asia, the Arabian Peninsula, North Africa and Middle Europe are becoming increasingly popular with Chinese travelers.

According to Ctrip.com, the largest travel website in China, 30 percent of overseas tour groups have already been booked up.
