SHANGHAI -- With the coronavirus pandemic making international vacations all but impossible, Chinese citizens are heading to domestic destinations during the National Day holiday that starts Thursday, giving the country's tourism industry a much-needed boost.

Upward of 600 million trips will be made within the country during this year's seven-day holiday, booking site estimates. This figure would fall short of the 780 million in 2019 but provide a solid recovery in tourism.
