In order to create high-quality environment for tourists and provide greater convenience, this autumn, Hangzhou plans to issue 100,000 "Hangzhou Tong•Tourist Cards". Cardholders can use the card to cover tourism consumptions and acquire tourism information inquiry service.

Like the Octopus Card in Hong Kong, the card can be used in a wide range of places, like scenic spots, restaurants, hotels and shops etc. When first purchasing the card, tourists need to store some money into the card. The maximum amount is 1,000 Yuan and minimum is 50 Yuan. When returning the card, the balance will be returned.

After October 1st, tourists can use the card in the places with the logo of Hangzhou Tong (杭州通) or Chinese Characters “零钱宝”. These places are marked out in the maps given to tourists when purchasing the card. In addition, from October 1st to December 31st, cardholders can gain an extra 10 percent of the deposit by depositing money into the card, and enjoy the lowest discount of the year when making purchases.

The card can be purchased in any customer service stations around downtown Hangzhou. And online applying service is on the agenda.
