Shanghai’s annual tourism festival is right around the corner. This year’s festivities will take place from September 12 to October 6. Just like every year, tons of Shanghai’s most popular attractions will offer half-price admission from September 15-21, Xinhua reports.

During the third week of September you can take a cruise on the Huangpu River, visit the Oriental Pearl TV Tower, brave the Shanghai Wildlife Park and learn something new at the Shanghai Science and Technology Museum for half-price. 

But a bunch of other attractions are offering tickets for 50% off too. The Shanghai Ocean Aquarium, Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum, the former residence of Sun Yat-sen are also on the list. You can even purchase discounted tickets to the Shanghai Disney Resort after 3pm between September 15 and 21 (but these tickets will be limited), Shine reports. And if art is your thing, most museums are offering discounted tickets, including Yuz Museum

This year, the festival will feature 100 exciting activities for locals and tourists alike. Among the many activities will be a special carnival for families on September 15, a sparkling wine festival at Jing'an Park from September 13-15, a tea culture tourism festival from September 5 to 8, a cycling festival on Chongming Island from September 16 to October 31 and so much more. 

The festival will last for 23 days, commencing with a grand parade on Huaihai Road M. on Saturday September 14. Visitors can expect 25 floats and 33 different performers from around the world.
