Beijing, May 31 – Chinese authorities are reportedly limiting the number of daily visitors to a section of the Great Wall in Beijing to 65,000 a day, a measure adopted in other tourist sites as well following conservation measures.

The limit on visitors to the Badaling section will be enforced from Saturday, June 1, and will also impose a digital registration system for reservations and ticket purchases.

Tourists can book tickets seven days in advance through its website and WeChat accounts, the most popular in Beijing.

In this way, Beijing authorities seek to prevent the deterioration of the site, which received more than 9.9 million visitors last year.

Like other tourist attractions in China, the population flocks in crowds during holidays or vacations and their safety and preservation is put at risk.

Spaces such as the Forbidden City or the National Museum of China have implemented similar measures in recent years for the same purposes.(Prensa Latina)
