National Week holiday has come to an end in Beijing and elsewhere across China. Time to get back to work – starting with a 7-day working week for most of us.
Many found themselves unable to leave Beijing during the holiday period. Meanwhile, others found themselves unable to enter the capital – with the pop-up window on the Beijing Health Kit (北京健康宝) rearing its ugly head.
Everything else aside, we know the question you’re dying to have answered; which Beijing scenic spots saw the most visits during the holiday period?
The Beijing Municipal Bureau of Culture and Tourism revealed that there were a total of 6.89 million visits to some of Beijing’s most popular scenic spots from October 1-October 7.
Below are the top ten, including the street which saw one million visits (we know you guessed it already).
