Everyone who has passed at least one section of the Great Wall of China is called a hero here. There are more than enough people who want to see one of the seven wonders of the world during the May holidays. In five days, 50 thousand tickets were sold.
And on Labor Day, the capacity was even exceeded. Although the situation with the coronavirus in the country is favorable, the restrictions are still in place.
“I don’t dare to go abroad yet, the pandemic is still raging there,” says one of the visitors.
The growth rates of domestic tourism in the Celestial Empire have surpassed all forecasts. In the first days of May, 230 million Chinese traveled around the country, an 8% increase over the same period in the year before the pandemic.
