The tourism spending power index rose for three consecutive years from 113.9 in 2017 to 115.4 in 2019, said a report jointly published by China Tourism Academy and China UMS.

More tourists selected high-quality accommodation with a year-on-year growth reaching 45.3 percent in 2019.

Travelers selecting high-quality accommodation were mainly male aged 35 to 44. The male dominate the list as they have more stable income and wealth, said the report.

In Feb, the tourist consumption amount on food and beverage surged 43.7 percent compared with last month. The customer born in the 1980s was the main force on food and beverage spending during the holiday, followed by the post-1970s generation and the post-1990s generation.

The top 10 sources of tourists in domestic tourism were Shanghai, Hangzhou, Beijing, Guangzhou, Hefei, Ningbo, Nanjing, Wuxi, Suzhou and Tianjin, with the tourists from Shanghai spending most.

The report said about 50 percent tourists selected a short trip during the holiday, but the number of long trip tourists has gradually risen in nearly three years.
