A Third Of Beijing's Most Popular Attractions Have Opened To Tourists

About a third of Beijing's most popular tourist sites have opened to the public, all of them located outdoors, Chinese media reported on Monday.

"In Beijing, more than 30% of the most popular tourist sites have opened for tourists. This was made possible by the fact that the coronavirus outbreak in China went down. Among the opened places in the vicinity of the city are the most picturesque sections of the great wall of China, Mutania, Simatai, and Badaling. The opening of the GUBEI water town in Simatai is scheduled for April 23," the publications write.

As emphasized, all attractions are located in the open air. Strict rules have been introduced for them, limiting the load - no more than 30% of the usual maximum number of visitors can visit here per day.

Also, the sites will introduce contactless services for tourists - such as mobile payments, e-tickets, and audio guides-to avoid new infections.

Tourism in China has been gradually recovering from the coronavirus epidemic since late March when the government allowed restaurants and parks to gradually open. At the same time, Chinese tourists are urged to take precautions to prevent a second wave of the epidemic.
