Chinese tourists made 133 million domestic trips during the three-day New Year holiday, according to the top tourism authority.

The trips generated tourism revenue of 75.5 billion yuan ($11.6 billion), up by 11.2 percent year-on-year, the China National Tourism Administration said.

"The Summer Palace welcomed almost 93,000 visitors during the holiday, up by 16 percent thanks to the good weather," said Li Kun, a publicity official for the Beijing attraction.

Trips by car and countryside outings were preferred in most areas, the tourism department said.

Famous cities in the south, such as Sanya, Xiamen, Shenzhen, Guangzhou and Kunming, were regarded as good destinations for escaping the cold, though some cities in northeastern China, including Harbin, Shenyang and Jilin, welcomed visitors for winter tourism.
