"Red tourism" is expected to receive a further boost and become a featured tourism category during the upcoming May Day holidays as China celebrates the centenary of the Communist Party of China.
Among the popular venues are the sites of the First CPC National Congress in Shanghai and Zhejiang Province, the Jinggangshan Revolutionary Base in East China' Jiangxi Province and the Zunyi Conference memorial hall in southwest China's Guizhou Province.
A staff with the Zunyi Conference memorial hall told the Global Times that they are ready to receive a large audience during May Day holiday as people's desire to learn and experience revolutionary history and culture has become stronger in recent times.
"Now we receive 200 teams every day, nearly double the number from 2019," Nie Cai, a guide of the memorial hall told the Global Times on Saturday.
She expected the number of tourists to further increase in May and June ahead of the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China in July.
