China's local governments have been told to finish reviews of ticket pricing at the highest-rated tourist attractions in their administrative areas and make the necessary cuts in charges by year-end.
The National Development and Reform Commission has been making efforts to cut ticket prices to promote tourism. Local authorities in charge of prices should fully supervise, review and investigate prices at major tourist attractions, where government sets entrance fees, and the prices haven't been cut since 2018.
Local authorities should also cut entry fees further at scenic spots that already lowered prices in 2018, according to the NDRC's notice.
While reducing prices, authorities should also lower the high cost of services such as car transport, cable cars, cruise ships and parking, which cause the largest number of complaints and tend to be monopolies, the notice said.
