Xinjiang encourages its scenic spots to attract tourists by issuing coupons for scenic spots, discounting or reducing tickets, said Liu Quan, a local official with the department of culture and tourism.

The ministry also suggested developing short trips such as trips in and around towns in the region, as well as to suburbs and rural areas. He said celebrations of various festivals will be held to attract tourists.

Now, 36 A-level tourist attractions in Turpan are free for its residents and sell half-price tickets to those in other parts of Xinjiang, Liu said.

Other preferential policies for travel agencies have also been issued to boost local tourism, according to the press conference.

“A-level” refers to the rating categories used by Chinese authorities to determine the quality and service of a tourist attraction. There are a total of five categories ranging from A to 5A, 5A being the highest level which refers to the most important and best maintained tourist sites in the country.
