After the reservation is made, many citizens may have some questions like the following: how do the elderly enter the park without a health code? Are there places to park? Are there any restaurants where we can dine inside the scenic area?
VisitHangzhou is here to answer your questions！
01 Do I need to wear a mask when entering the park? What if there is no health code?
Yes! The epidemic is not over, and everyone entering the park needs to wear a mask. There are three things to keep in mind when entering the scenic area:
Please make a reservation in advance;
Wear a mask and show your green Hangzhou Health Code;
Have your body temperature taken and tour around the scenic area in an orderly manner.
What about those coming from outside Hangzhou, and the elderly and children? They don’t have Hangzhou Health Code. How can they enter Xixi Wetland?
The health codes of Jiangsu, Zhejiang, Shanghai and Anhui are universal. At the same time, the park has set up instructions for applying for the Hangzhou QR code at each entrance. You can apply for the Hangzhou Health Code on the spot by scanning with Alipay. The elderly and children need to register their information on the spot.
02 Will the scenic area be crowded with people? How to avoid the peak periods?
According to recent observations, 10:00 and 13:00 are the periods with the most people; especially on weekends, the number of visitors reaches its peak. We recommend that citizens and tourists choose off-peak periods to tour, especially for older citizens who are recommended to make a reservation to tour on weekdays.
