China promotes ‘revenge travel’ to boost economy after Covid lockdowns

Millions of Chinese people are travelling across the country in a bout of “revenge tourism” after almost a year of quarantines, lockdowns and restrictions on their movement. China’s ministry of culture and tourism expects around 550 million residents will make trips within the country during the eight-day public holiday marking both the mid-autumn festival and China’s national day.
