As China continues to witness more tourists heading abroad, visa applications to favorite destinations are increasing.
According to leading online travel agency Ctrip, Thailand recorded most visa applications in the first half of the year.
Singapore and South Korea ranked second and third respectively, while visa applications to Pakistan surged by 37 times, the most, thanks to friendly ties between the two countries.
Ctrip data also showed that the number of visitors applying for multiple entry rose substantially, implying a trend of more frequent overseas travels by Chinese. Multiple visa applications to Malaysia doubled from the same period last year, and those to South Korea soared 76 percent.
