Owing to relaxed travel restrictions, Chinese people exhibited zest for outdoor experiences over the three-day holiday for Tomb-sweeping Day that ended Monday, cramming tourist spots.

Early on the morning of April 5, the operator of the Huangshan mountain park in eastern China's Anhui province released three Sina Weibo posts, advising tourists against entering the scenic spot on that day as the park had become too crowded.

In Shanghai, the downtown Century Park in Pudong New District had its online tickets sold out for the holiday, a time for Chinese people to pay tribute to the deceased and worship their ancestors as well as to enjoy the outdoor greenery in spring.

According to a report by Meituan Dianping, a leading Chinese tech giant offering online vacation booking, the number of hotel rooms booked on its platform over the three-day holiday had rebounded to 90 percent of that over the same period last year.

After a lengthy stay at home owing to the coronavirus outbreak, Chinese people showed eagerness to travel and pay for tours and outdoor experience.

Zhan Dongmei, head of tourist spot studies with the China Tourism Academy, said as the COVID-19 epidemic had not come to an end and the whole nation faced risks of imported cases, tourist safety and health were the top concern in resuming domestic tourism sector.

A one-size-fits-all approach should be avoided when it comes to stimuli for tourism resumption, experts suggested.
