A total of about 22 tourist attractions like the Old Summer Palace of Beijing, are hoped to be added to the 5A category. It’s the highest level in terms of the rating system, as per the Ministry of Culture and Tourism on Wednesday.
Local tourism administrations had recommended the final shortlisted tourist attractions and were assessed in accordance with standards and regulations by the MCT.
Besides the Old Summer Palace, or “Yuanmingyuan” in Chinese, tourist attractions in north China’s Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, east China’s Jiangsu and Jiangxi provinces were got a position in the list as well.
China has a tourism-rating classification system. It rates a tourist attraction from one A to 5A regarding its tourism quality in general.
Now, China has more than 10,300 tourist attractions rated above A level, welcoming more than 6 billion visitors every year.
