East China's Anhui province saw 16.75 million tourist trips during the three-day tomb-sweeping holiday, Anhui Business Daily reported, citing 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.

Many tourists visited natural scenes, tombs of their ancestors, martyrs' cemeteries and rural attractions during the holiday. They went out largely by car or high-speed rail. Characteristic itineraries were favored.

14 major scenic areas across the province received 850,300 visitors, representing a year-on-year rise of 1.70 percent.

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