The Chinese Academy of Social Sciences' Tourism Research Center and the website recently released a report analyzing Chinese people's travel behaviors in the third season of 2011.
It finds Chinese prefer destinations offering sunshine, hot springs and skiing in autumn and winter.
Fujian province's Xiamen, Hainan province's Sanya and Heilongjiang province's capital Harbin are the most popular cities during the chilliest months.
The top international destinations are the United States, Thailand, Australia and Japan. Iran has emerged as a new destination for Chinese since Aug 15.
About 25 percent of long-distance trips are made by train, the report finds.
