          Free tourism entry comes of age

            A total of 242 tourist attractions in the Yangtze River Delta region, including 20 in Shanghai, are expected to include age as the criteria for free admission for children in addition to height.

            This is in response to a joint call by consumer councils of Shanghai and Jiangsu, Zhejiang and Anhui provinces. 

            Attractions include Shanghai Tower, Shanghai Disney Resort, the 88th-floor observatory of Jin Mao Tower, Shanghai World Financial Center, Madame Tussauds wax museum, Shanghai Haichang Ocean World, Jinjiang Amusement Park, Shanghai Happy Valley, Dongping National Forest Park and Guangfulin Relics Park in Shanghai. 

            The Shanghai Tower operator said the attraction will offer free admission from next month to children who are at or below 1 meter, or children at or below 3 years old. 

            The Shanghai Disney Resort said it supports the initiative of giving consideration to both height and age and will announce details once measures are finalized. 

            Elsewhere, the Zhouzhuang Ancient Town and Yuantouzhu peninsula in Jiangsu, the Qiandao Lake and Moganshan Scenic Area in Zhejiang and the Huangshan Mountain Scenic Area in Anhui have made similar responses. 

            Only 6.2 percent of tourist attractions in the Yangtze River Delta region give consideration to both height and age when offering free admission to children. The rest make height the only criterion, according to the Shanghai Consumer Council and other councils based on information from 1,000 scenic spots. 

            A survey by the councils revealed more than 50 percent of respondents said it was not reasonable to make height the only criterion when offering free admission to children to tourist attractions.

            The survey covered 9,167 respondents in the Yangtze River Delta region. The move is expected to boost tourism.
