Trip.com deal to boost travel to Zhejiang
Cultural and tourism authorities in neighboring Zhejiang Province’s Anji County revealed plans to boost tourism recovery by signing with Shanghai-based online travel operator Trip.com and establishing a safe-tour association with 11 cities and counties in the province.
Destinations will include Wuyi County, which is known for its hot spring, and Shengsi County’s islands. They have reported no confirmed or suspected cases of COVID-19.
Tours to these destinations will be offered on Trip.com with discounts and a one-stop booking service available.
Under the agreement signed by the Anji County Culture, Radio and Television, Tourism and Sports Administration and Trip.com, the travel operator will provide a number of non-contact and intelligent tour services for travelers with reservations, personalized tours and self-driving trips featured.
The association aims to integrate resources in the counties and cities, particularly health tours, to explore markets such as the Yangtze River Delta region and create a concern-free cultural and tourism consumption market, said Song Bo, Anji’s governor.
The destinations boast attractions such as Qiandao Lake, Yunhe Terrace, and Anji Bamboo Forest.
