Major tourism attractions in Guangzhou's Nansha district received around 333,200 tourists during the Tomb Sweeping Day holiday from April 3 to 5, an increase of 189.99 percent year-on-year.
The tourist total was also 17.12 percent higher than the same period in 2019. The occupancy rate of hotels in Nansha in the first two days of this year's Tomb Sweeping Day holiday reached 82.27 percent, also higher than the level that was reached before the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The beach on the north side of Humen Bridge in Nansha attracted a lot of visitors during the holiday. People enjoyed their leisure time by the sea and had a picnic with their families, while kids had fun flying kites.
"Nansha possesses a great majority of Guangzhou's coastal lines and the beach here is very comfortable and beautiful," said a man surnamed Liu, who came from Panyu district to enjoy the holiday with his daughter in Nansha.
