Upgrades for info centers

THE city is planning to renovate its travel information centers soon in a bid to better help tourists who need assistance or guidance, said the Shanghai Tourism Administration yesterday.

The new centers will also be more eye-catching, so that tourists can find them more easily.

At present, the city has a total of 45 travel info centers in all of the city's 17 districts and Chongming County. Tourists, however, have complained that a large number of the centers are built far away from main streets, and if they need help, they wouldn't know where to find them.

The administration said that info centers in popular areas, such as in Xujiahui, the Bund and airports would receive a large number of tourists, but the rest would be less busy.

Officials said they will set up more signs on the roads near the centers, to make them easier to find and build new booths at busy areas.

The bureau will also use professional travel consultants to man the booths who can give suggestions to tourists on itineraries in the city and in surrounding areas.

Officials also reminded tourists that the addresses of all the centers are on Shanghai Tourism's website:, but at present only a Chinese version is available.
