Hong Kong and Macao remains popular with mainland travelers during the upcoming Spring Festival holiday season, an online survey has showed.
About 11 percent of people polled in an online survey released by market research firm Nielsen during the weekend picked overseas travel destinations over domestic ones for the coming vacation, with the top three places for short-haul trips being Hong Kong (60 percent), Taiwan (29 percent) and Macao (23 percent).
“In these challenging economic times, travelers on the mainland are looking for ways to save, including organizing trips themselves and planning short- to medium- haul trips,” said Grace Pan, head of travel and leisure research at Nielsen’s China operations.
“All the 400 seats in our Taiwan tour groups were booked 20 days before the deadline and we have at least one group leaving for the island every day of the holiday period,” said Zhang Qingzhu, a marketing manager with China Comfort Travel Ltd.
