Xu Xiaolei, chief brand officer for China Youth Travel Service亚博娱乐官网平台后花园, said that in the past, the tourism
industry placed the emphasis on daytime activities and “undervalued” nighttime operations. But con
亚博娱乐官网平台后花园女神会所sumers are now demanding high-quality nighttime activities, with nearly half of the company’s customers asking

destination, with 30 to 40 percent of consumption now taking place at night, Xu said.
