Surge abates, but not problems

CHONGMING tourism cooled a bit this weekend, but the surge in visitors still posed problems for the biggest island in Shanghai.

Tourists began pouring in on October 31, when the Changjang Tunnel-Bridge opened.

The crowds were less intense this weekend, although there were no immediate statistics to confirm it.

Nonetheless, Shanghai Daily still witnessed some bad tourist behavior.

In the West Coast Wetland, some visitors smoked in the area, broke off reeds and threw litter. The parking lot almost become a garbage dump, with tangerine peel everywhere.

"We are worried about our tangerines these days," said Zhang Rongxia, a farmer.

"With more people coming to visit the wetland, more oranges from my garden are stolen by strangers."
