On July 14, soon after the news of the resumption of cross provincial group tourism was released, a spike in queries related to holidays, hotels and flights was registered on Ctrip platform while a whopping 500% increase was recorded in search for group tours and free travel. On Lvmama platform, a two-hour real-time search volume of related travel activities such as group tours and free travel showed an increase of more than three times.

"Natural landscapes are more popular than artificial ones,” the director of Lvmama said that after the epidemic, products for leisure and relaxation have become the first choice for many tourists. Seaside vacation and relaxation, mountain sightseeing and leisure are more suitable for tourists' needs now. Tourist destinations with suitable climate conditions and good scenery are more popular now. Therefore, Hainan, Sichuan, Yunnan and the northwest ring road have emerged as popular destinations for tourists to book.
