Off Peak Travel Offer More Options
Traditionally April is not a booming season for travel, which means prices are lower, and with a long holiday ahead of them residents are taking the opportunity to travel to visit the graves of their loved ones and at the same time enjoy the greenery of spring. Most travelers chose a one or two day travel package to several resorts found near Shenzhen.
The off-peak travel season in combination with the incoming warm weather has encouraged Shenzhen residents to take trips during the upcoming Tomb Sweeping Day holidays or Qing Ming Jie. The traditional Chinese festival falls on April this year. There will be a three-day holiday but those planning to go on trips will have to work weekends before traveling.
Places that also show abundance in blooming flowers were also popular, such as the rose rich Conghua in Guangdong Province, the sunflower rich area in Panyu in the south and the lavender rich Panlongxia in Zhaoqing. With the new Shenzhen-Wuhan high speed rail set to open on April 1, tour packages to Hubei and Hunan that last for three or five days were also offered.
