Xinhuanet reports that 266 major Class-A tourist attractions in the province had reopened, accounting for 63.2%. The Provincial Department of Culture and Tourism has said that 12 of these are top-rated Class-5A attractions.

And now the Yellow Crane Tower in Wuhan will reopen this week, according to Shine. The landmark attraction will have a daily visitor limit of 5,400 people.

Advance tickets necessary

Guidelines state that these attractions limit visitor numbers to 30% of the daily capacity. Only outdoor areas are allowed to open.

Furthermore, tickets must be booked in advance and a time slot reserved before you arrive. Visitors are able to book online or by phone.

Safety measures in place

Temperature checks will take place at the entrance, and visitors must scan their green QR health code. All cleaning procedures have increased, and restaurants are providing single-use plastic cutlery in the restaurants.

Social distancing will be encouraged throughout the parks, with signs reminding guests to stay apart. Visitors will be seated in every other row on rides.

Theme parks also reopening

Fantawild Oriental Heritage in Jingzhou and Xiamen and Silk Road Dreamland in Jiayuguan are some of the parks that have reopened.

As theme parks around the world remain closed, many are likely to look at China’s reopening strategy to assess their successes when reopening themselves.
