Bund mulls plan to cool visitors with sprayers

THE Bund sightseeing zone management is considering installing water sprayers in the area to help cool tourists in sizzling summertime.

Such public cooling devices had been used to comfort huge crowds waiting to enter the World Expo pavilions in Shanghai last summer and they had received thumbs-up from Expo visitors.

After the Expo, some popular sightseeing spots such as the Oriental Pearl TV Tower have installed such the sprayers.

The management said the major barrier to the scheme is the concern that water sprayers along the Bund promenade may mar the scenery with vapor. It said the officials are still working on the plan to blend the cooling devices in the surroundings and allow visitors to enjoy the waterfront scenery even hot weather.
