Due to the sharp decrease of groups and independent tourists from outside Xinjiang as a result of anti-COVID measures and unfavorable weather, local residents became the mainstay of holiday tourism, and urban and suburban destinations became more popular, according to the regional government.

Xinjiang received a total of 4,026,400 tourists, a year-on-year decrease of 33.14 percent, with tourism revenue of 2.48 billion yuan ($371 million) during the holiday, official data showed.
