Family tour: a new trend

Family tour has become a hot trend and records the highest number of reservations this year with OTA. The most popular packages include Southeast Asia island tours, Canada Spring Festival Celebration Tour, Valentine's Day Small-group Great Barrier Reef Tour and Spring Festival Deluxe Antarctic Pole Cruise.

According to local travel agencies in Guangzhou, most of the popular overseas package tours during the Chinese New Year are fully booked, especially tours to Southeast Asia islands, with the flight tickets costing over 3,000 yuan.
