[To start construction of Shanghai Legoland]
It turned out that construction of Shanghai Legoland will start from today. The location is on the east side of Fengjing Town, Jinshan District, Shanghai, and the site area is 318,000 m2. It is scheduled to open in 2021.
After opening, it will consist of eight theme lands in Shanghai Legoland. Among them, a land with the Chinese theme of "West Yuuki" is also planned.
Shanghai suddenly became cold.
It was above 20 ℃ until last week, but this week it suddenly changed to below 10 ℃ due to the cold wave. I feel like I'm in winter.
I went to McDonald's China headquarters the other day. I visited a special McDonald's store that became a hot topic on the internet. It's a very interesting store, but we'll show you a video of it.
I stayed at the official hotel of Universal Beijing. Due to the preferential treatment of early entry, it is conveniently located at the entrance of the park.
Tickets can be bought, but express and VIP tour slots continue to be filled even two months away. After all, the only way to enjoy the attractions is to stay at an official hotel where you can make early entries.
The hotel rooms are spacious, but you can greet the Minions at the breakfast venue. The details of the hotel will be reported in the video.
[Some tourists will return to the national holidays]
The return of domestic travel to China is seen during the Golden Week holidays from October 1st. Tourists from all over China are returning, except for areas marked as "medium risk" or "high risk" where local infections have occurred. However, there is a risk of unplanned emergency lockdowns, and short-distance trips and drive trips are the main consumption trends. Group travel is still a difficult situation.
Among them, Universal Beijing, which opened its grand opening, has become the most popular tourist destination in China.
CHINA8 also covered Universal Beijing from Shanghai to Beijing during the holidays. This time, I experienced the latest sleeper train in China.
[Universal Beijing will open on September 20]
Universal Beijing Resort will open its grand opening on September 20th. In addition to the popular movie "Harry Potter" in Japan, there are attractions with themes such as the movie "Kung Fu Panda" set in China. This is the fifth Universal Studios theme park after the United States, Japan (Osaka), and Singapore.
Ticket prices are divided into 4 levels: 418 yuan / 528 yuan / 638 yuan / 748 yuan. Tickets will be on sale from September 14th.
[2021/9/4 ~ Low risk throughout Shanghai]
From late July, the spread of Delta strains was temporarily settled, and the entire city of Shanghai returned to a low-risk area. As a result, travel and travel across provinces will resume.
Since I was able to move across provinces, I rented a car during this time and moved out of Shanghai. In China, it is not possible to rent a car with a foreign driver's license yet, but it seems that mutual certification of experimental exemption is being carried out with some countries. This time we will also deliver the state of the rental car.
As of August 30, 2021, there are no new infections due to community-acquired infections throughout China. From the end of July, the spread of infection by the Delta strain seems to have temporarily subsided. In addition, the number of "high risk areas" throughout China has been reduced to zero. Domestic movements in China and people's lives are returning to normal.
The end of August is the time for Chinese students to go abroad to study in the United States and other countries. International students who could not attend school in 2020 Corona will finally be able to go to school this summer in 2021. A long line appears in front of the check-in counters at major international airports in China.
The other day, we picked up and dropped off at Hangzhou Airport. I feel sad in front of the international departure. A place where you can enjoy and expect to travel is a place where you can leave your family. Parents cannot easily see their children overseas because they cannot easily return to the country with Corona. International students at this time are also courageous.
[All areas of Shanghai are low-risk areas]
The spread of infection by Delta strains has been temporarily suppressed in China, and the number of new infections continues to decrease. Since August 17, it has been designated as a low-risk area throughout Shanghai.
I went for a walk to the "Kokita area", which is an area where Japanese people live in Shanghai. Although the number of Japanese people has decreased from before Corona, Shanghai, which is still the largest Japanese city in the world, has delivered a video of the current state of the Japanese town.
[Scenery of tourist spots due to the spread of corona infection]
Originally, August is the summer vacation season, which is the most popular time for domestic travel in China. Unfortunately, in China, where the corona was temporarily suppressed, travel reservations nationwide were canceled one after another at the end of July due to the sudden spread of local infection.
It is a travel opportunity for people in non-infected areas.
The other day, I attended a tour to the water town "Xitang" in Zhejiang Province.
It became a quiet tourist destination, but I was able to fully enjoy the scenery.
[Closed tourist spots due to typhoon No. 6]
Typhoon No. 6 is forecast to land in Zhejiang during the daytime on the 25th, and most tourist destinations in Shanghai and Zhejiang will be closed on the 25th and 26th. Shanghai Disneyland will also be closed for two days. Passenger flights to / from Shanghai Pudong Airport, Shanghai Hongqiao Airport, and Hangzhou Xiaoshan Airport have been canceled all day on the 25th.
[To open the world's largest astronomical museum]
The Shanghai Astronomical Museum was opened on July 18 as the world's largest heavenly building with a building area of 38,000 m2. We limit the capacity to 5,000 people daily, but tickets are sold out daily.
We will also deliver the video that entered the museum on the first day.
[Shanghai Disneyland to raise ticket prices]
Shanghai Disneyland has announced an increase in ticket prices from January 9, 2022.
Regular 399 yuan → 439 yuan Regular plus 499 yuan → 545 yuan Peak 599 yuan → 659 yuan Peak plus 699 yuan → 769 yuan
Both will be raised by around 10%.
[To resume performance of Shanghai Acrobatic Troupe]
For the first time in a year and three months, the Shanghai Acrobatic Troupe "ERA Space-Time Journey" has resumed performances at Shanghai Circus World.
Initially, it will be performed only on Saturdays and Sundays, but after August it will be performed every day except Mondays.
I was excited to see the first day of the performance.
Ticket reservations have also resumed.
