SHANGHAI -- Tourism revenue during China's five-day Golden Week holiday recovered from last year's COVID-induced slump, but failed to return to the level in 2019.

Tourists spent 113.23 billion yuan ($17.5 billion) during the break that ended Wednesday, according to the Ministry of Culture and Tourism -- higher than last year's 47.6 billion yuan but lower than 2019's 117.7 billion yuan.
