China’s long, extremely restrictive lockdown was just lifted, and the return of mainland China’s outbound travel market is arguably *the* hottest topic in tourism.

After being confined for three long years, they seek wellness, nature and “social connections.” Nature is the first priority for 60% of travelers (especially among those aged 36+ at 69%). And 56% are keen to actively incorporate wellness in their holidays, with one-third preferring camping, hiking, outdoor adventures and cultural immersion.
