With the holiday period now officially over, the Shanghai tourism bureau have tallied up all the ticket stubs and boarding passes and have released a bunch of information about the city’s sights during the October holiday.


According to the bureau, over 10.59 million tourists visited Shanghai between September 30th and October 8th, with 874,000 people taking flights in and out of Pudong and Hongqiao airports collectively.


7.17 million people visited the 135 tourism destinations the bureau monitors, and we’ve compiled the top 10 most visited in a handy list for you below. Oh, and if you’re wondering where Shanghai Disney is on this list, they haven’t disclosed their numbers. Although if this policeman’s estimates are to be believed we’d guess they’ve seen around 480,000 guests.
