City app comes as a help for tourists

Published on : Thursday, October 24, 2019

An app giving tourists right to use the recent cultural and tourism resources of Shanghai and which permits them to book tickets was introduced on Tuesday.

 

The app provides information on culture, tourism, food, shopping, traffic and sports. It uses 5G, virtual reality and augmented reality to display tourist attractions, food and transport in the city.

 

With the help of this app, tourists can book plane and train tickets, accommodation and entry to tourist attractions. Within the city, they can look for restaurants and performances. Also, the app is connected to the transport system of the city with a QR code making this easier.

 

Taxi hailing services and tours ranging from one to six days including Shanghai and adjoining cities like Suzhou and Hangzhou are also available.

 

In 2020, an English version of the app, “Visit Shanghai,” will be launched said Bao Lei, president of Shanghai Tourism Tech Co Ltd, which developed the app.

 

“It may take three months for its design, and other language versions apart from English will also be involved to better serve inbound tourists to Shanghai, enabling them to experience the glamour of the city,” said Bao.

 

“Multilingual versions will not be simple translations of the Chinese version, but they will be designed based on the habits of tourists of different countries and we will make adjustments to pages from the Chinese version,” he said.
