Adjust font size:

Seventy percent of Chinese plan to travel around the country or abroad after the Olympic Games, an on-line survey has found.

The latest survey, by China's leading on-line travel agent Ctrip, was conducted among 1,000 respondents nationwide.

August has been the traditional peak season for China's tourism industry. However, this August many people have chosen to stay at home to watch the Olympic Games and postponed their travel plans. Ctrip said that accounted for the high percentage of people intending to travel after the Games.

The survey said that among the respondents, more than 50 percent chose long-distance domestic destinations, more than 30 percent favored short-distance tours and over 10 percent said they would go abroad.

Among the domestic destinations, Olympic co-host cites are people's favorites, with nearly 60 percent choosing Beijing, followed by Hong Kong, Qingdao, Shanghai, Qinhuangdao, Shenyang and Tianjin.

The Beijing Olympic Games run from Aug. 8 through 24.
