A series of parks across the country will cut their ticket prices or even open for free, in order to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China.
In Beijing, the famous parks - Temple of Heaven, Ditan Park, Summer Palace, Beijing Zoo, Taoranting Park, Chaoyang Park, Beijing International Sculpture Park and Beijing Garden Expo Park, will open to the public for free on October 1.
Visitors still need the tickets to enter into the park. Entrance tickets can be reserved through the park's official website, WeChat account or official app, and then exchange tickets at designated sites. According to the local authorities, the ticket fee for some other visiting sites in other cities will also be reduced. In Zhejiang, the Grand Buddha Temple scenic spot, a 4A level tourist destination, the ticket price will be cut down from 100 RMB to 80 RMB from September 30.
In recent years, the National Development and Reform Commission issued relevant policy to lower ticket prices in order to benefit the public and encourage the tourism industry.
