Shanghai Sheshan National Tourist Resort has launched a series of discounted ticket options as part of its efforts to attract visitors in the wake of the novel coronavirus outbreak, and shore up the megacity's tourism industry as the recovery begins.

To help its operations and boost the tourism economy of the city, Shanghai Sheshan National Tourist Resort is offering discounts of up to 50 percent on Ctrip, a popular travel website, under the guidance of the Shanghai Development and Reform Commission as of the beginning of April.

The ticket packages, expiring on June 30, cover seven scenic attractions at the resort, which are Chenshan Botanical Garden, Shanghai Happy Valley amusement park, Moon Lake Sculpture Park, Shanghai Shimao Elf-themed Park, Tianmashan Park, Xiaokunshan Park and Guangfulin Cultural Relics Park.

The ticket package for an adult is priced at 270 yuan ($40), which is a saving of more than 50 percent compared with the standard price of 600 yuan, according to the resort.

The price of the ticket package for children is 170 yuan per person, providing the child's height is between 1.1-1.4 meters.

According to Shanghai Sheshan National Tourist Resort, medical workers can visit the attractions for free, in honor of their efforts made during the epidemic outbreak.

Buyers of the package are advised to activate their tickets before June 1, and can use a QR code as their ticket.

Conforming to Shanghai's requirements for epidemic prevention and control, Sheshan has kept the indoor venues of the seven attractions closed for the safety of visitors and to help prevent the spread of infection.

Being "fully armed" with a range of epidemic prevention and control measures, the administrative committee of the Sheshan resort urges all the visitors to wear a face mask while touring.

Located 30 kilometers from downtown in Songjiang district in the western suburbs of Shanghai, the resort is the city's only natural forest resort.

The resort has built four 4A-level scenic attractions, three 5-star hotels and a group of sought-after tourism facilities such as Chenshan Botanical Garden and Guangfulin Cultural Relics Park. Sheshan aims to develop itself into a first choice for tourists and become an international resort destination in the future, according to the resort.
