Zhangjiajie in Central China's Hunan province has issued an action plan for tourism recovery on Feb 18, devising 30 measures to boost confidence in the tourism industry and promote the market's recovery.

Due to the novel coronavirus outbreak, the city's scenic spots and performing arts venues have been temporarily closed, posing challenges to the tourism sector at this popular travel destination.
