Some 726 million people were on the move in China during the week-long National Day holiday from October 1 to 7, up 9.43 percent year on year.

Official data show holidaymakers this year saved more money while gaining a wealth of cultural knowledge.

Reduction in admission fees to 981 state-owned scenic spots nationwide greatly benefited tourists, with ticket prices for 491 attractions cut by over 20 percent and 74 other spots completely free of charge.

Lower prices brought more traffic to the Yellow Crane Tower, Wudang Mountain and Shennongjia National Nature Reserve in Central China's Hubei province over the holiday, while the Three Gorges Dam was among the popular destinations with free entrance.

More low-cost food combo packages and convenient travel services also contributed to the decreased expenses during the week.

Mount Laojun in Luoyang, Central China's Henan province, offered one-yuan meals featuring noodles, sausages and steamed buns to travelers, People's Daily newspaper reported on Thursday.
