Crowd control during National Day Holiday
Updated: 2013-09-18

This National Day holiday, scenic spots in Anhui province may not be as crowded as usual. The Anhui Province Tourism Bureau is planning to announce maximum bearing capacities for all A-level scenic spots in Anhui. During the Golden Week, once visitors reach 80 percent of the number, tourists will be diverted and traffic regulations will be instated.

Once the maximum bearing capacities of the 442 A-level scenic spots are announced, the spots will be required to post and publicize the numbers.

A variety of measures will be used to control visitor flow during the National Day holiday. Some popular spots in Anhui, such as Huangshan Mountain, Jiuhua Mountain, Tianzhu Mountain, Wuhu Fantawild Adventure Park and Fuyang Ecology Park, will take measures such as selling tickets in advance and with restrictions, so that total visitor numbers can be closely watched.

Related news: In addition to enhancing service quality, the holiday office is also determined to regulate the market. If tourists encounter deceitful behavior or coerced shopping from tour guides, or unlicensed cabs, they can complain to 0551-62999159 or 0551-62821763.
