How have Chinese people's traveling habits changed since China's reform and opening-up?


According to statistics released by National Bureau of Statistics, the number of trips made by domestic travelers rose from 524 million in 1994 to 5 billion in 2017. The number of overseas visits of Chinese citizens also increased from 3.73 million in 1994 to 135.13 million in 2016.
