Special deals usher in tourism festival

SOME local scenic spots, eateries and hotels will offer big discounts from today to October 6 to mark the Shanghai Tourism Festival.

Almost all the main scenic spots in the city will join the campaign, said the Shanghai Tourism Administration yesterday.

Scenic spots will halve admission fees, while eateries will offer at most 48 percent off for UnionPay tourist card holders, officials said.

Meanwhile, the 12th Shanghai International Music Fireworks Festival is scheduled to take place in Century Park at the end of September to welcome the new month of October.

To set this year apart from previous years, the organizers will introduce some basic fireworks facts to the watchers during the performance to help them better judge the quality of the shows.

The festival will feature six shows offered by Chinese, Swedish, Korean, Greek, Portuguese and German fireworks artists.

Li Zhengming, an official from the Puong New Area Tourism Bureau, said that the show would contain the latest innovations in the fireworks industry.

Moreover, the bureau plans to build a fireworks trading platform for the annual festival next year.

"We will invite 100 overseas fireworks importers and thousands of domestic producers to the performance next year," he said.

He added that 80 percent of fireworks globally are produced in the country.
