Two of the country’s largest tourism websites, Ctrip.com International and its former rival Qunar.com Inc, began cooperation over the weekend in a bid to jointly strengthen their online tourism businesses and compete with other market players.

Qunar’s website has begun promoting tourism products offered by Ctrip – including a five-day trip to Hangzhou – as “one type of the cooperation measures between the two companies,” Niu Yue, a public relations staffer at Ctrip said.
