The Shanghai Sheshan National Tourist Resort in Songjiang district, Shanghai, received a total of 312,000 tourists over the Labor Day holiday, local media reported on May 7.

This figure accounts for 87.8 percent of all tourists in Songjiang over the five-day holiday.

Scenic spots in the resort limited the number of tourists allowed to enter and only allowed them enter at specific times.

On May 3, the Sheshan National Forest Park received 16,600 tourists – 30 percent of its full daily capacity.

"Although there are many tourists in the park, it is still much less than previous Labor Day holidays," said a tourist surnamed Li, who travels around the park with his daughter every year. He said he was comforted by the park's efforts to keep tourists safe.

At the command center of the Songjiang Forest Farm, employees consistently examined real-time monitoring screens, while others patroled the forest farm to ensure the satefy of tourists.

"Since the forest farm reopened in March, we have limited the number of tourists, required them to make reservations, taken their temperatures, checked their health QR codes, and asked them to wear masks before entering the farm," noted Xu Ping, head of the farm.

She also added that every mountain on the forest farm was guarded around the clock by specially-assigned workers.

Meanwhile, Shanghai Happy Valley received 51,500 tourists over the holiday, a 48.4 percent decline year-on-year.

Since April 15, Shanghai Happy Valley has limited the number of tourists to 30 percent of its full daily capacity, or no more than 24,199 tourists per day.

All indoor entertainment facilities in Shanghai Happy Valley currently remain closed, including the Magic Circus and Marine Aquarium, and tourists are required to maintain a distance of 1.5 meters from each other when queuing up.
