The list goes on, that is (not even) the half of it. You can see the list of all 82 (in Chinese) right here. Oh, and Shanghai Disney Resort will offer discounted admission after 3pm.

A couple of points of order from the Shanghai Administration of Culture and Tourism: reservations are required in advance of your visit; strict anti-epidemic measures will be observed, so mask up with Health QRs at the ready; and long lines are expected at some attractions (standard), with a limit on numbers at some of the options.

The first Shanghai Tourism Festival was held in 1990 to boost consumption in the tourism sector and bring public benefits. Since then it has become a tradition for major scenic spots in the city to provide half-price tickets over the week. A very fine tradition indeed, we say.

So there you have it. Book ahead. Go forth. Explore. Enjoy!
