71% of those surveyed by Dragon Trail International said they planned to travel during the upcoming National Day holiday in October.

ForwardKeys and Dragon Trail International have issued an upbeat view for China domestic travel, despite recent COVID-19 outbreaks that raised fears of a travel slowdown over the Mid-Autumn Festival (21 September) and the National Day holidays from 1 October.

Dragon Trail International’s fourth Chinese Traveller Sentiment Survey found that more Chinese are resuming pre-pandemic travel behaviours, despite persistent concerns over safety.

43% of survey respondents said they would “travel cautiously,” up from 31% in Dragon Trail’s March 2021 survey. The proportion who said they wouldn’t travel dropped from 39% in March to 32%, while those who said they were “eager to travel” stayed the same at 20% of respondents.

ForwardKeys said that its latest travel data show a rebound in Chinese domestic bookings for air travel since the recent outbreak of COVID-19.

Furthermore, 71% of those surveyed by Dragon Trail International said they planned to travel during the upcoming National Day holiday in October. While the largest proportion said they planned to travel locally, a growing number are now willing to go further. The top cross-provincial tourism destinations were Yunnan, Beijing, Hunan, Zhejiang, Sichuan, Shanghai, Shaanxi, Hainan, Fujian, and Chongqing.
