Major local tourist attractions waive entry fees
Local officials from the Bureau of Culture and Tourism announced last week that eight state-run national A-level scenic spots in Xiamen will exempt entry fees to all visitors through the end of August.
The tourist attractions include six sites on Gulangyu -- the Engraving Character Museum, Haoyue park, the Kulangsu Gallery of Foreign Artefacts from the Palace Museum Collection (pictured above), the Organ Museum, Shuzhuang park and Sunlight Rock -- as well as the Xiamen Botanical Garden and Hulishan Fortress on the island of Xiamen.
Earlier this year, several national A-level scenic spots in Xiamen also waived entry fees on a long-term basis, including the Gulong Sauces Culture Park, the Jiahe Grain Depot Culture Tourist Area, the Jimei Aoyuan Garden, the Tianzhu Mountain Forest Park and the Xiamen Horticulture Expo Garden.
Bureau officials added that the city will issue a total of 10 million yuan worth of summer vacation coupons on purchases made via the Fliggy travel app, with discounts of up to fifty percent on select cultural and tourism products.
