The most popular destinations so far are Singapore, South Korea, Hong Kong, Japan and Thailand, based on Group bookings. For long-haul destinations, the US, UK and Australia lead the pack.

Key takeaways

  • Regional travel to recover first, since it is easier and less expensive to visit nearby destinations;
  • Chinese business travelers will want to reconnect with the world's major economies, like the US, Japan and Europe;
  • Leisure travel will start to pick up in Q2 when passport and visa approval processes are running smoothly, and flights have fully resumed.
