Most of the enquiring tourists intend to go to red tourist areas such as Jinggangshan in Jiangxi, Zunyi conference site, Yan'an, Shajiabang in Changshu, Yimeng Mountain in Shandong, Xibaipo in Hebei and Baise in Guangxi for middle or short trips.
It is estimated that July will see the coming of the peak red tourist season.

Red tourism is a new form of tourism combining red cultural landscapes and natural scenery, as well as bringing revolutionary education into promoting tourism development.
