Let’s be honest, it wouldn’t be a Chinese public holiday without an analysis of year-on-year figures. 

Data from 202 scenic spots in Beijing show there were over 12.6 million visits during the May Day holiday from May 1 until May 5, just over three times the level of May Day 2020 and a drop of 4.6% compared with 2019.

Revenue totaled over RMB697 million, 1.9 times the level of May Day 2020 and a 14.5% increase compared with 2019. 

The 10 scenic spots listed below were the most visited in Beijing during the May holiday.

Readers may recall that Wangfujing was also crowned champion during Chinese New Year 2021 with 895,000 visits. 

Regardless of whether visitors go there for the luxury shopping malls, a variety of cuisine or just to take a stroll, it seems other scenic spots in the capital may have a hard time knocking Wangfujing off the top spot during the next public holiday.
