More than 4 million tourists visited Shanghai over the holiday
More than 4 million tourists visited Shanghai over the seven-day Spring Festival holiday, with Shanghai Disney Resort among the most popular attractions.
The 4.43 million total was about the same as last year's Spring Festival, but tourism revenue — 4.94 billion yuan (USD 780 million) — was up 1.5 percent, according to the Shanghai Tourism Administration.
Like other attractions, Shanghai Disney Resort had to apply the brakes by preventing further numbers from coming in, with ticket sales suspended on Sunday and Monday due to the large numbers of visitors.
Meanwhile, Shanghai International Resort had more than 240,000 tourists through the holiday, according to the administration.
A total of 289 cruise trips, carrying 79,000 passengers, ran on the first six days of the holiday, and 72,000 visitors to the city's suburban parks were recorded during the holiday.
Per capita spending by tourists staying overnight in Shanghai during the holiday was 1,092 yuan, up 7 percent from last year, according to the administration.
