Major tourism attractions told to close again

Some indoor tourist attractions in Shanghai which have reopened gradually from March were ordered to close again until further notice from today to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus.

These include the Oriental Pearl TV Tower, Shanghai Tower, Madame Tussauds and Shanghai Haichang Ocean Park.

A full refund will be given to those who have bought tickets online.

Rising 632 meters above Lujiazui in the Pudong New Area, the Shanghai Tower is the world’s second-tallest building. Its observatory on the 118th and 119th floors is one of the most popular places to enjoy the city skyline, with 30 percent of visitors being foreigners.

The coronavirus outbreak forced the building to close its observatory on January 24. It reopened on March 12 but will close again today.

Another landmark in Lujiazui, Jin Mao Tower also reopened its observatory on the 88th floor on March 12 and will also close from today.

Twenty-five attractions have been ordered to close their indoor sections from today. Tianzifang, Zhujiajiao water town and Shanghai Happy Valley are on the list.

Another 37 outdoor tourist attractions with limited indoor space have been required to close their indoor areas, including the Shanghai Wild Animal Park, City Beach and the Chenshan Botanical Garden.

Meanwhile, 12 scenic areas originally scheduled to reopen soon have been ordered to delay.
