5A tourist attractions lower ticket prices
CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- The shopping festival Singles' Day (11.11) lands this month, and the tourism market is armed to the teeth. Over 50 domestic 5A tourism attractions have lowered their ticket prices, in response to the arrival of off-season.
The reporter visited the Chongqing tourism market and learned that the current Chongqing tourism market mainly promotes two major routes – “all the way north” and “all the way south”. “This really represents a major trend in the current Chongqing tourism market.” The head of a tourism brand under China CYTS Tours Holding said in an interview that people head to Changbai Mountain to see snow and Sanya to play with water, which “is divided equally in the winter tourism market”.
In 2017, the number of trips to attractions in forests in the country reached 1.39 billion, which accounts for 28% of the total number of domestic travels and creates a comprehensive revenue of 1.15 billion yuan for the society, becoming the third forestry pillar industry with an annual revenue exceeding one trillion yuan.
It is worth noting that in November, many scenic spots in China have started to implement the off-season ticket prices. At the same time, many provinces have also launched special preferential policies for winter and spring. There are many scenic spots that sell off-season tickets and many of them are well-known national 5A level scenic spots.
Take some attractions in Chongqing as example, a ticket for Wulong Tiansheng Sanqiao would cost 125 yuan during peak seasons, however, 95 yuan (which includes an environmental vehicle fee 40 yuan) is enough for off-seasons (November to February); a ticket for Wulong Furong Cave would cost 80 yuan during peak seasons, but 65 yuan is enough for off-seasons. In addition, a ticket for Jiangjin Simian Mountain would cost 110 yuan per person in peak season but as low as 60 yuan for off-seasons. (Translated by Yang Lifu, Fathom Language Limited)
