The prices of tickets to 69 tourist attractions and museums in Shanghai will be slashed in half for the first week of the 2020 Shanghai Tourism Festival, according to the Shanghai Municipal Administration of Culture and Tourism.

Major tourist attractions such as the Oriental Pearl Radio & TV Tower, the Shanghai Wild Animal Park and the Shanghai Science & Technology Museum are among the listed venues.

Because certain scenic spots may receive large crowds due to the discount, the administration has reminded tourists to be prepared for long queues at the ticket counter.

The 2020 Shanghai Tourism Festival, which is set to take place from Sept 12 to 27, will run a week shorter than its usual duration due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

The festival will also not feature the traditional float parade for its opening ceremony this year because of the opening of the newly extended east section of the Nanjing Road pedestrian street.
