East China’s Anhui province saw 16.75 million tourist trips during the three-day tomb-sweeping holiday, according to the provincial tourism development committee.

The tourism revenue reached 9.26 billion yuan ($1.47 billion) during the holiday which lasts from April 5 to April 7, the committee said.

While tourists still favor sites of natural scenes, an increasing number of people chose to visit martyrs’ cemeteries and memorial sites of revolution, the Ministry of Culture and Tourism said in a report.

The Tomb-sweeping Day, or Qingming Festival, is an important occasion for Chinese people to honor their ancestors.
