The Wushatou scenic area on Dachen Island, a popular tourist attraction in Taizhou, East China's Zhejiang province, began a trial run on May 31, the Taizhou Evening Post reported.

Wushatou, covering an area of 1.5 square kilometers, is a newly developed scenic area and includes a wetland park, a 52.09-meter coastal glass skywalk, a cliff restaurant, and more.

The 2.5-km coastal walkway built along a cliff is one of its most attractive scenic spots.

According to Zhang Huabo, deputy general manager of Taizhou Jiaojiang Tourism Group Co Ltd, the company that operates Wushatou, visitors are currently required to enter the scenic area in a number of separate batches due to the novel coronavirus pneumonia outbreak.

"Visitors must make reservations a day in advance through the WeChat account of the company (dmdc-tz)," said Zhang, adding that only 100 tourists are allowed to visit Wushatou per day.

Zhang noted that children under 1.5 meters in height do not need to make reservations, but their guardians must make a reservation one day in advance and accompany them on the visit.

Dachen Island, the only offshore town in Taizhou, actually consists of 29 separate islands, including Shangdachen, Xiadachen, and Zhuyu, where people can collect sea creatures on the beach, eat fresh seafood, and admire beautiful seascapes.
