Scenic spots reduce ticket prices during Golden Week
( chinadaily.com.cn )
The Jiangxi Provincial Price Bureau will reduce ticket prices for scenic spots during Mid-Autumn Festival and National Day after receiving approval by the Jiangxi provincial government. The price reduction is a move to celebrate the holidays, promote tourism and expand domestic demand.
From Sept 30 to Oct 7, all tourist destinations in the province with government-guided or government-fixed ticket prices will reduce their current ticket price by various amounts. For scenic spots whose current ticket price is below 50 yuan ($7.93) per person, 35 percent of the ticket price will be reduced. For those with ticket prices from 50 yuan ($7.93) to 100 yuan ($15.86), the reduction will be 30 percent. For those whose ticket price is between 100 yuan ($15.86) and 200 yuan ($31.73), reductions will be 25 percent. For scenic areas with ticket prices over 200 yuan ($31.73), prices will drop by 15 percent. If the current ticket price is under 10 yuan ($1.59) per person, entrance will be free of charge to visitors.
