Catherine Li, a 23-year-old Shanghai-based financial researcher, plans to travel to Japan with her parents during the Lunar New Year holiday.

This will be her first trip to the country, and she has earmarked 15,000 yuan ($2,200) per person for the five-day trip.

The native of prosperous Wenzhou, East China’s Zhejiang province, said big cities are lonely places to spend the weeklong holiday, as hundreds of millions of migrants join the world’s largest annual human migration to head back to their smaller hometowns for family reunions.

“I have traveled to many places over the country for the past Lunar New Year holidays,” she said. “This time, I want to experience the exotic favor of Japan.”
