SHANGHAI — While China’s retail sales experienced double-digit growth during the recent Golden Week holiday, the country’s domestic tourism sector witnessed the biggest boom over the eight-day break, with record numbers of Chinese flocking to popular tourist destinations across the country.
Golden Week is a seven-day break at the beginning of October when millions of Chinese travel, as well as shop at retail spots to take advantage of discounts and other promotions. This year’s holiday was an extra day longer, as it coincided with Mid-Autumn Festival, a traditional Chinese celebration.
