The total number of Chinese outbound tourists for 2021 is projected to be 25.62 million, 27% higher than 2020 but still 83% lower than the 2019 level, according to a report by China Tourism Academy. Among the destinations visited, 95.45% were in Asia, with Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan getting over 80% of the outbound visits.

Most destinations have received 66% to 98% fewer Chinese visitors, but Macao has seen a significant recovery of mainland tourist arrivals.

With China’s outbound tourism dictated by the pandemic situation both domestically and overseas in the past two years, the report noted Chinese tourism enterprises have mostly shifted to domestic tourism. China Tourism Group has since centered its business on duty-free shopping and resorted to online channels, while launched content + transaction platform Star Hub. Mafengwo, an online social tourism community combined with e-commerce, also pivoted to domestic tourism.

For travelers, time and safety are the top concerns, according to the report. Some 82.8%  of surveyed consumers suggested they would only visit a Covid-zero place, with a similar percentage of respondents choosing domestic travel over overseas travel.
