A total of 42 national A-class scenic spots in Weihai, Shandong province are offering free admission from Dec 1 to Feb 28, 2021 (except New Year's Day and Spring Festival) to spur winter tourism, according to local authorities.
The move is an effort to speed up the recovery of the tourism industry amid COVID-19 control efforts.
In order to safeguard public health amid the COVID-19 pandemic, all scenic spots are required to implement strict epidemic prevention and control measures. They will continue to require online booking to ensure tourists visit at different times, and the number of tourists will be kept below 75 percent of the maximum capacity.
Weihai, a picturesque coastal city in Shandong province, is home to a rich and diverse culture and many tourist attractions. This winter, the city has launched several tour routes themed around rural tourism, New Year celebrations, mountain climbing, hot spring resorts, folk culture, and driving tours.
