China’s transportation and tourism sectors hit a new record last week as 150 million people travelled within China during the seven day period. 44 million travelled by train, up 6 percent from last year, and preliminary statistics from the Civil Aviation Administration of China show that 3.62 million passengers few on 30882 domestic flights, up 19% and 12% respectively. And beat this, total retail sales in consumer goods totalled 3.2 trillion yuan. *Ka-Ching*!
Now we can all heave a sigh of relief, and those of us who stayed back in Shanghai can finally start thinking about going on a real vacation!
