China expects a huge tourism rebound in domestic travels during the upcoming October holiday. Starting October 1st with Chinas National Day, online travel platform estimates that 600 million trips could be made until end of the festival on 8th October (782 million trips last year).

Traveling to other countries is almost no option these days. Not only strict entry policies in other countries but also mandatory 14 days quarantine in a designated hotel upon return to China forces citizens to travel only nationwide this year. Domestic travel bans have been lifted, but there are still some restrictions. Schools in Beijing and Shanghai for example have asked parents and students not to go away for the holidays unless strictly necessary.
