Asia continued to dominate the top 10 list of destinations in terms of transaction volume. Iceland and the Maldives started to provide Alipay for Chinese travellers ahead of this year's Golden Week. Those born in the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s accounted for 96% of all those who used Alipay overseas. Those born in the 1960s using Alipay overseas during Golden Week doubled compared with last year. Before Golden Week, 3,000 Thai airport taxis started to accept Alipay, and hundreds of fares used the service during the holiday period.
