ollowing a hiatus caused by the coronavirus outbreak, Shanghai’s tourist spots are beginning to welcome back visitors.
The Oriental Pearl Tower reopened on Thursday under limited capacity and health controls, along with the Shanghai Tower and Jin Mao Tower.
On Friday, the Shanghai Museum is slated to reopen, capping the number of daily visitors at just 2,000.
Fengjing Ancient Town and Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum are a few of the other Shanghai attractions that have announced their plans to reopen.
Even Huangpu River cruises are set to start back on Sunday.
To enter these scenic spots, you’ll need to reserve ahead of time, bring your ID, and also show your health QR code. Temperature checks will be also be conducted at the door and if you’re running a fever, you won’t be let inside.
While visiting attractions, guests must wear masks and should maintain a distance of at least 1.5 meters from other visitors.
Shanghai’s parks (like the Shanghai Zoo, Shanghai Botanical Garden, and Gongqing Forest Park) are also scheduled to reopen on Friday with a limit on the number of visitors and, of course, a ban on group dancing.
The return to semi-normalcy comes as Shanghai has reported very few new coronavirus cases in recent weeks apart from those arriving at the airport from Italy.
