During the Dragon Boat Festival holiday, Tianjin received a total of 6.6751 million tourists, including 3.1157 million from Tianjin and 3.5594 million from other provinces; tourism revenue reached 5.509 billion yuan.

A large number of tourists opted for weekend getaways and short-distance travel for activities like picking fruits, experiencing farming life and camping.

Traditional activities from dragon boat races to workshops to make zongzi, a type of pyramid-shaped sticky rice dumplings, were held nationwide to mark the festival that commemorates the life and death of patriotic poet Qu Yuan. After dark events like folk music performances and intangible cultural heritage experiences also gave a boost to nighttime consumption.

Places like Yunnan, Qinghai, Gansu, Inner Mongolia, and Guizhou became popular destinations for young people for road trips and summer retreats, with Ili Kazakh Autonomous Prefecture of northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region becoming a hot destination following the success of hit TV series "My Altay."

Travel packages combining tickets and hotels were particularly popular at attractions such as Beijing Universal Resort, Shanghai Disneyland Resort, and Zhuhai Chimelong Resort.
