Road traffic around major tourist destinations in China has increased sharply on the second day of the week-long National Day holiday, the Ministry of Public Security said Tuesday.

The ministry cited Mount Wutai, a famous Buddhist mountain in north China's Shanxi Province, and several other mountainous areas in eastern, central and southwestern China, which reported more than 50 percent rise of traffic flow over Monday.

Traffic police across the country have been ordered to step up security control, publish the latest traffic information and dispatch more officers to major expressways and tourist destinations, the ministry said.

As rains were forecast from Tuesday to Thursday in some parts of the country, the ministry also asked local police to prepare for emergencies.
