SHANGHAI -- Che Yingjie has not flown in more than a year, but on Saturday she is headed with a friend to China's southern island province of Hainan from Beijing for a three-day shopping spree.

"It is a trip that I have longed for," said Che, a tutor, who before COVID-19 usually made an annual overseas shopping trip with her friend. This time, after getting vaccinated, she is targeting nine malls in Hainan where domestic travelers can buy imported goods duty-free.
