Yao Hua from Shenzhen, Guangdong province, entered the main gate to Tianmen Mountain at 8 am on Friday, becoming the first tourist after the reopening of scenic spots in Zhangjiajie, Hunan province.

Staff members of the scenic spot checked her code for a ticket reservation and health codes, and reminded her to keep her mask on at all times during the visit.

Yao had been stranded in Zhangjiajie for a month because of the resurgence of COVID-19.

"Zhangjiajie is home to the Wulingyuan Scenic and Historic Interest Area, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. I must have a look."

Starting from Friday, three scenic spots in Zhangjiajie-the core scenic spots of Wulingyuan, Tianmen Mountain and the Grand Canyon-reopened to the public after a resurgence of COVID-19 had been subdued.

The renowned tourist city is offering half-price discounts until Sept 30 to tourists for all of its A-level scenic spots and transportation services in the area. It's a way of thanking all sectors of society for supporting the city's contagion prevention and control work, said local authorities.
