Recently, with the expansion of domestic and foreign visa-free and unilateral visa-free policies, China's inbound and outbound tourism policies have continued to benefit. In particular, Harbin's tourism has been "out of the circle", and Northeastern traditional tourist cities such as Dalian, Shenyang, Jilin, and Changchun have returned. With the attention of tourists at home and abroad, the Northeast inbound and outbound tourism market is ushering in a new round of heating up.

  At 11:45 on February 8, flight JL023 slowly landed at Dalian Zhoushuizi International Airport. 189 passengers got off the plane one after another. Dalian Zhoushuizi International Airport ushered in the peak arrival period.

  At present, as Harbin becomes popular overnight, various unique tourism projects connect various northeastern cities together. Ice and snow, forests, hot springs, skiing...the "white mountains and black waters" of Northeast China have become one of the most attractive tourist destinations in China this winter, and various places are also frequently trying their best to attract tourists from home and abroad.

  The continued release of the favorable visa-free policy, coupled with the recent introduction of a number of new entry facilitation measures, has further promoted overseas tourists to travel to Northeast China, driving the inbound tourism market. At the same time, favorable policies have brought about a “two-way rush”. With the arrival of the Spring Festival, more and more people are choosing to use the Spring Festival holiday to travel abroad. At the departure hall of Dalian Zhoushuizi International Airport, passengers heading to Japan and other places came in droves, and people were enthusiastic about outbound travel.

  Data provided by Dalian Zhoushuizi Entry-Exit Border Inspection Station shows that during the Spring Festival (February 9 to 17), the number of customs clearance at Dalian Airport Port is expected to reach more than 23,000, an increase of 400% compared to last year’s Spring Festival.
