With COVID-19 well under control in China, we see well-known sites and resorts all over the country embracing visitors. Data till October 7 show China had more than 10 million rail trips every day since the National Day on October 1, showing many people took advantage of the efficiency of high-speed railways to enjoy day-trips close to home. At the same time, many others have chosen to drive, with nearly five million road trips on average every day over the holiday. Meanwhile, the country’s consumer spending has recovered, posting growth since the coronavirus outbreak. Will holiday spending be able to help China put its best foot forward?
