May 1 was the second day of this year’s Worker’s Day holiday. The temperatures warmed up quite a bit, as humidity tapered off. It’s estimated that Hangzhou received 626,700 visits on that day alone and the top three most visited attractions were Hubin Pedestrian Street, Qinghefang Ancient Street, and West Lake and Xixi Wetland Scenic Areas.

Starting from April 30, public spaces like A-level scenic areas, star hotels, travel agencies, performance spaces, internet cafes, entertainment facilities, libraries, and cultural venues where health code check is already needed upon entering will also require an extra COVID-19 test result within the past 48 hours. During the afternoon of May 1, Broken Bridge inside the West Lake Scenic Area saw an increasing number of visitors having a blast in the rowing boats. Almost all the rowing boats moored at the pier of Hubin Park were rented out. The boat can carry a maximum of 5 people at a time and the price as low as 30 yuan an hour enticed many young people to have a try. With life vest on, they are free to row the boat all the way to the water near Broken Bridge.

The health code protocol also applied to other types of boats and the whole process was made simple and smooth. Visitors are required to scan the QR code before purchasing tickets on their phone. Later, they will be asked to provide COVID-19 test result within the last 48 hours to get onboard. As gloomy weather gave way to brilliant sunshine, popular tourist destinations like Xiaoyingzhou Island and Hubin Pedestrian Street had a larger influx of visitors compared to the day before. Everyone was wearing a mask and being cooperative when it was their turn to scan the code.

For this holiday, people can still enjoy the fun of rivers and mountains in Hangzhou on the condition that the COVID-19 guidance to get tested every 48 hours is well observed.
