Brace yourselves, because this is exciting news: You can now buy tickets to eight major Beijing parks online or by scanning a QR code. We can’t even count how many hours we’ve spent standing in line at the capital’s tourist attractions, so we’re all about e-tickets. It's about time!

E-tickets can now be purchased for the Summer Palace, Tiantan Park (Temple of Heaven), Beihai Park, Zhongshan Park, Beijing Zoo, Xiangshan Park (Fragrant Hills Park), Beijing Botanical Garden and Jingshan Park.

To get e-tickets, visitors can either buy their tickets online prior to visiting one of the parks or they can scan a QR code at the actual park. There are reportedly QR codes (with instructions) at each of the parks’ entrances. At the time of writing, e-ticket machines had been set up at 27 entrances at eight Beijing parks (listed above).

The new system started being rolled out in May, and so far park visitors seem to be pleased with the e-tickets. So far 330,000 tickets have been sold online.

Due to the new system's success, e-tickets will also be available for Yuyuantan Park, Zizhuyuan Park and Taoranting Park before the upcoming Golden Week holiday.

With more people purchasing e-tickets, there should also be shorter lines for those waiting to buy physical tickets, so it's a win-win.

(It’s important to note that those purchasing discounted tickets – such as senior citizens and children – will still have to purchase paper tickets.)
