Vouchers worth more than 5 million yuan (US$724,000) will be distributed in the next two months to stimulate spending in culture and tourism sectors in Shanghai's downtown Jing'an District.
The vouchers are up for grabs from Thursday through October 31 via the WeChat mini program "静安文化公益配送及文旅消费" (Jing'an Cultural Service Delivery and Culture, Tourism Consumption).
They can be used to visit museums, dine at five-star hotels, watch movies, see the exhibition of American pop artist Keith Haring, take tea-for-two at St Regis Jing'an or watch a movie at Hubei Cinema.
