Tujia.com, a Chinese vacation-rental website similar to Airbnb Inc., has secured $100 million from investors including Lightspeed China Partners, GGV Capital and Qiming Venture Partners, according to Ron Cao, a managing director at Lightspeed China.

CDH Venture, CBC, China Renaissance Capital and U.S.-based HomeAway.com Inc. were some of the other investors in the round. With many of Tujia.com’s existing investors re-upping into the Series C round, only China Renaissance Capital, also known as Huaxing, was a new investor.
