Non-local tourists are welcomed again in China’s Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, after authorities eased tourism restrictions on September 5.
According to a news report by China Global Television Network (CGTN), all scenic areas and tour agencies in the destination are still required to adhere to official guidelines on epidemic prevention and control.
Tianchi alpine lake in Fukang City welcomed more than 600 tourists from outside the region on September 5 alone. The Kum Tag Desert in Shanshan County also received more than 100 non-local tourists.
Cheng Xiaofeng, secretary of the Communist Party Committee of the Tianchi scenic area, told CGTN that all sightseeing spots have reopened, and tickets for staggered entry are sold online.
At present, tourists traveling in and out of Xinjiang are not required to undergo Covid-19 tests or isolation. They only need to show their health codes and comply with local epidemic prevention requirements.
