Overall numbers of visitors to Beijing scenic spots were around 3.7 times higher compared with the Spring Festival period last year. Many tourist hot spots closed over Spring Festival 2020 following the first outbreak of COVID-19. 

Some of the city’s most popular tourist attractions were fully booked up several days in advance over the holiday period, as venues were required to operate at reduced capacity. Many will hope that Spring Festival 2022 will see a return to something resembling normality.
