A total of 24 scenic attractions in Taizhou, Zhejiang province, will continue to remain open to local residents free of charge in 2024, as announced by local authorities recently.

This initiative, which was first launched in May 2018, allows local residents to explore the 24 State-run scenic spots, such as Shenxianju and Tiantai Mountain, throughout the year, with the exception of national holidays, weekends, and major festivals.

The policy also extends to non-local residents holding local residency permits. To access these attractions, both locals and non-locals must make online reservations in advance through the taizhou519 WeChat account or Zheliban, an online administrative service app launched by Zhejiang. The reservation channel opened on Jan 16 at 9:00 pm.

Reservations are limited to seven days in advance and allow visitors to select their preferred scenic area and time of visit. Once confirmed, visitors will receive a QR code for an electronic ticket to the chosen scenic area.

While admission fees are waived, visitors will still be responsible for costs related to cable cars, travel guides, parking, and other leisure and entertainment services during their visit to these scenic spots.
