It will be a busy time for global leaders gathering in Beijing for the APEC leadership summit that runs from November 5 to November 11.

But for many Beijingers who work in the state and public sectors, the summit will be an unexpected six-day vacation started from November 7th through November 12th.

The China Tourism Academy (CTA) estimates that China will have a total of 3.72 billion trips during 2014, an increase of 10% compared with last year.
It's a trend in China that every legal holiday will boost the outbound travel figure.

And now Chinese people have their own tastes when it comes to their choices on the countries and regions they prefer to go.

Before taking any guesses on their destinations during the APEC meeting, it's important to first take a look at some of their most frequented travel hotspots in 2014.

Spring Festival

America is considered the most favorable place to go for Chinese people during Spring Festival.

Chinese tourists like to go shopping, enjoying the food and unique hotels in America, according to a Chinese travel agency.

They also may be looking for more limited-edition items of lesser-known brands in America they have discovered on social media networks.

In terms of hotels, Chinese tourists love luxury hotels in America, in particular historical hotels, or hotels with a connection to uniquely American culture.
Younger Chinese generations also prefer to taste more western food in U.S.

The long holiday of May 1st has triggered the fashion of "DIY tour" among people, which is more flexible in terms of time.

Thailand ranks the first choice in people's travel list with Bangkok and Chiengmai turning the favorable cities in the country.

There are several reasons why Chinese want to travel to Thailand, including the lower cost, delicious food, beautiful beach and different variety of massages.

And the booking status also indicates that tourist routes to Japan, Republic of Korea, Hong Kong and Macao have become extremely hot.

The week-long holiday is the last significant leisure time for most Chinese before the end of the year.

And autumn is considered golden travel time because of the mild weather.

Japan has become the second most popular place after Thailand.

Chinese tourists go there to enjoy the spa, seafood and the clean sky during autumn.

Asian countries, such as Thailand, Japan and Korea, are still the most popular countries for people who seek a romantic autumn trip in China during this National Holiday.
