As all parts of the country gradually enter the off-season of winter tourism, many scenic spots in provinces and cities have introduced the policy of ticket reduction and exemption, attracting tourists from home and abroad to visit the local area and sharing the development dividend.
According to Wang Songping, director of the Travel and Development Commission of Tibet Autonomous Region, from November 1, 2018 to March 15, 2019, a winter tour of Tibet will be launched.

Recently, Gansu Province has also promulgated the Subsidy Measures for Developing Preferential Tourism Activities in Winter and Spring, encouraging scenic spots above 3A level to implement preferential policies such as free tickets in winter and spring. The reporter learned from Dunhuang City, Gansu Province, that in winter and spring, tourists from other provinces and foreign countries are also given preferential tickets. The tickets for Mogao Grottoes, a world cultural heritage, are from 180 yuan per person to 90 yuan per person; the tickets for Mingsha Mountain, Yueyaquan, a national 5A scenic spot, are from 110 yuan per person to 55 yuan per person, and besides the reduction of the tickets, Mogao Grottoes are also offered. There will be 4 more caves not opened in summer and autumn. Visitors can visit the caves from 8 to 12. At the same time, Jilin Changbai Mountain Management Committee said that Jilin Changbai Mountain will exempt western and Northern scenic spots from tickets for six months (November 1 to April 30 each year) for global tourists. Wang Ku, director of the Changbai Mountain Management Committee, stressed that although tickets were waived, the level of service would never drop slightly.
In addition to the preferential policies introduced by provinces and cities, many scenic spots throughout the country have implemented off-season fares since November 1, which can save tourists a lot of money compared with the price in peak season.
Reporters learned that many of the scenic spots carrying out off-season ticket prices are well-known national 5A scenic spots, some of which are more than 100 yuan in peak season ticket prices. For example, the peak season ticket price of Yangzhou Slender West Lake Scenic Area in Jiangsu Province is 100 yuan and the off season ticket price is 60 yuan; the peak season ticket price of Laoshan Scenic Area in Qingdao, Shandong Province is 180 yuan and the off season ticket price is 120 yuan; the peak season ticket price of Baili Rhododendron Scenic Area in Guizhou Province is 150 yuan and the off season ticket price is 50 yuan; the peak season ticket price of Huashan Scenic Area in Shaanxi Province is 160 yuan and the off season ticket price is 100 yuan Ticket price is 160 yuan, off-season fare is 80 yuan; Inner Mongolia Alshan National Forest (Geological) Park in peak season fare is 180 yuan, off-season fare is 130 yuan; Zhejiang Putuo Mountain scenic spot in peak season fare is 180 yuan, off-season fare is 120 yuan.
At the same time, reporters after combing found that some famous scenic spots drop even more than 100 yuan. Among them, the peak season ticket price of Huanglong Scenic Spot in Sichuan is 170 yuan, the off season ticket price is 60 yuan; the peak season ticket price of Jiuzhaigou Scenic Spot in Sichuan is 190 yuan, and the off season ticket price is 80 yuan; the peak season ticket price of Wulingyuan core scenic spot in Hunan is 225 yuan, and the off season ticket price is 115 yuan; the reduction range is 110 yuan. Industry insiders said that there were many scenic spots with off-season tickets in East China and West China, which was a manifestation of the rational use of tourism resources in scenic spots. For tourists, if they travel at the wrong peak, they can not only enjoy a larger discount in price, but also have fewer beautiful scenery people, and their experience will be greatly improved.
