Ctrip's report said the average spending in outbound travelling was 7,000 yuan ($1,033), or double that of domestic travelling.

China's top 10 departure cities to outbound travelling were Beijing, Shanghai, Hangzhou, Shenyang, Nanjing, Qingdao, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Jinan and Chengdu. Tourists from Beijing spent most during outbound travelling to nearly 9,000 yuan per trip, followed by Shanghai at around 8,500 yuan.

Chinese tourists to Thailand and Japan accounted for over 30 percent of the outbound travelling.

Tourists from Shanghai spent most in domestic travelling at 3,416 yuan, and tourists from Beijing, Guangzhou, and Hanzhou also spent over 3,000 yuan.

During this Spring Festive holiday, the young travelers aged from 25 to 34 accounted for 40.9 percent of the total travelers, a 6 percent increase from 34.8 percent in 2017.

Ctrip said the post-1980s become the main force of travel during the holiday, accounting for over a quarter of the total travelers and the post-2000s accounted for 22 percent.
