Baofeng Lake, Zhangjiajie, had managed a reception volume of 34,350 during four days from September 30 to October 4, 2012, with a year-on-year increase of 94%. The most exciting point was that on October 2, it receipted 12,000 tourists, which was the first time it had managed a daily reception of over 10 thousand. That certainly has been the peak since it was built.
Independent tour by car was very popular and heated. On October 3, there were independent tourists by car from almost 10 different provinces such as Hubei, Yunnan, Guizhou, Guangdong, Beijing, Jiangxi, etc. accounting for 40% of the total reception volume. Thanks to the orderly guidance, everything went smoothly.
All was in order since one single spot was matched with an employee in charge and another 4 tour commentators were involved in the Golden Week. As a result, a waiting line never appeared. More over, employees were highly praised by tourists through their helping to hand in pamphlets, provide consulting service and even to buy tickets, take care of children temperately and take photos for families and so on.
