nighttime consumption soars in Spring Festival holiday


The total nighttime consumption topped 379 billion yuan (about 59.5 billion U.S. dollars) in the period that ended on Feb. 6, accounting for almost 34 percent of the countrys overall consumption during the holiday, the report said.

In breakdown, nighttime dining consumption soared 28.91 percent year on year, while that for nighttime shopping rose 28.76 percent over one year earlier.

Last year, Chongqing, Changsha, Qingdao, Chengdu and Shanghai were among the 10 cities with outstanding influence in the night economy.


Data from the China Tourism Academy also shows that 22 percent of tourists participated in city night tours.

Chinas night economy, which refers to business activities between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m. in the service sector, has registered stable recovery as the COVID-19 epidemic wanes.

Nighttime consumption during the week-long Spring Festival holiday in China surged 27.06 percent year on year, the Economic Information Daily reported on Wednesday.
