Chinese vacation rental site gets big funding, totals $64 million

After attracting its first major financing in May of last year, the Chinese vacation home rentals startup TuJia has announced today that it has wrapped up series B funding. The startup had not previously revealed financial numbers, but today said that both rounds amounted to RMB 400 million (US$63.7 million) in investment.

TuJia’s series B saw participation from an all-star array of investors: GGV Capital, Lightspeed Venture Partners, CDH Ventures, and Qiming Venture Partners. Plus, China’s biggest travel booking site, Ctrip, contributed funds, along with America’s HomeAway – as both did in the last round.
