Chinese tourists will make nearly 800 million domestic trips and another 7.5 million overseas during the upcoming week-long National Day holiday, said a report released Friday.
Ctrip, China's major online travel agency, said in the report that its registered users from over 500 Chinese cities have booked trips to 100 countries and regions online for the holiday starting from Oct. 1.
Chinese made 726 million domestic trips during last year's National Day holiday, a year-on-year increase of 9.43 percent, according to the statistics from China Tourism Academy.
The number of orders among tourists in fourth-tier cities and below has expanded by 30 percent, said Alibaba's travel agency Fliggy, whose data also show its inbound trip orders have risen 42 percent, outpacing that of outbound ones.
Also, Beijing has recruited more than 78,000 volunteers to maintain traffic order during the upcoming National Day Holiday, local authorities said Thursday.
The volunteers will provide guidance and bilingual services to the public at 1,700 bus stations, 308 subway stations and 266 crossroads in Beijing from Sept. 28 to Oct. 8, according to the Beijing municipal committee of the Communist Youth League.
At present, all the volunteers are ready for service after completing training sessions including service etiquette and emergency response.
