It was not just new attractions, such as venues of the Olympic Games,
On Thursday, the Forbidden City hosted 120,000 visitors, a year-on-year rise of 140%, and 97,000 for the section of the Great Wall at Badaling, up 55%, and 92,000 for the Summer Palace, up 67%, and 65,000 for the Temple of Heaven, up 76.%.
The National Holiday, which marks the 1949 founding of the People’s Republic of China, started last Monday and ended on Sunday. Now the interesting figures will be those that follow this Golden Week holiday.
Judging by other Olympic resorts around the world visitors stay away from once-used Olympic venues UNLESS a serious attempt is made to keep them interested with other, relevant, attractions.
