China’s Great Wall in Beijing partly reopened on Tuesday, after being closed for almost two months due to the novel coronavirus outbreak.
The famous Badaling section is open between 09:00 and 16:00, and the daily number of visitors is capped at 19,500.
Visitors must book tickets in advance on the official website or through WeChat, a popular Chinese social media app, and register with their personal information to get a health code. Their temperatures will be taken upon entry.
A one-way circular tour route has been designed to prevent crowding.
“We divided the sightseeing area into different sections and every section is equipped with security guards who will remind visitors not to get together and guarantee their safety,” said Zhang Wei, director of the management office of the Badaling section of the Great Wall.
The cableway, the China Great Wall Museum, the ancient Great Wall and some other sections remain closed.
In addition, the Beijing International Horticultural Expo Park and the Beijing Wild Duck Lake National Wetland Park will also reopen soon on Friday.
