Robust tourism consumption was vitalized in Guangdong

During the holiday, among the 11 million tourists, nearly 4 million tourists paid a visit to 4A level and above tourist attractions, 387,000 tourists to 14 sections of the historical trails, 240,000 tourists to 13 red tourism scenery spots, 393,000 visitors to 71 rural tourist spots and historic villages, as well as 518,000 million visitors to 75 key public cultural institutions.

Many tourist attractions held fascinating performances. For example, the Chimelong Ocean Kingdom in Hengqin held a firework show and drone show to welcome the New Year; “Meng Li Shui Xiang” Garden in Foshan held a light show; Zhanyuan Garden in Zhongshan even set up four ancient dance performances every day.

In addition, public cultural institutions held exhibitions and activities both online and offline. The Sun Yat-sen Library of Guangdong Province held the 2022 New Year Recitation, while the Nanyue King Museum planned a series of activities such as Hanfu events and vase making, and the Guangzhou Cantonese Opera Troupe provided a special performance of Cantonese opera online which attracted about 11,000 viewers.

Due to the COVID-19 resurgence, scenic spots inside cities of Guangdong became the best choices for local tourists, most of which traveled mainly in a short and medium distance. Moreover, hot spring resorts and camping have become new favorites for tourists.
