She added that running a 24-hour business is not easy, an亚博娱乐官网平台后花园女神会所
d many bookstores in China had tried and failed at this. But as the authorities have started to p
亚博娱乐官网平台后花园romote nighttime business activities, this offers a good opportunity to develop such bookstores.
“Bookstores are the spiritual landmarks of cities and are indispensable to citizens. To make 2
4-hour bookstores universal requires the joint efforts of society, and will take time,” she said, adding that she h亚博娱乐官网平台后花园女神会所
opes more cities in China will cater to people who want to read in bookstores at night.
In recent years, nighttime tourism has developed much faster than other se
亚博娱乐官网平台后花园ctors, and many cities have launched nocturnal projects. For example, Xi’an, capi
tal of Shaanxi province, has launched more night fairs, cultural performances and entertainment outlets.
Xu Xiaolei, chief brand officer for China Youth Travel Service亚博娱乐官网平台后花园, said that in the past, the tourism
industry placed the emphasis on daytime activities and “undervalued” nighttime operations. But con
亚博娱乐官网平台后花园女神会所sumers are now demanding high-quality nighttime activities, with nearly half of the company’s customers asking
for such itineraries to be arranged, whether they are traveling in China or abroad.
“I think it is especially good that the Chinese authorities have rolled out meas亚博娱乐官网平台后花园
ures to boost after-dusk activities, which is a response to people demanding higher-quality lives,” he said.
Xu added that Chinese cities are “too similar” in promoting nighttime ac亚博娱乐官网平台后花园女神会所
tivities. Most of the time, night travel is still about tasting local food in “snack streets”.
“Every city should think about developing unique tourism resources that would enabl亚博娱乐官网平台后花园
e it to stand out from others,” he said. “Many people the world over would like to see a Broadway musical while vis
iting New York, but performances in China are mostly high-priced and out of reach for most.”亚博娱乐官网平台后花园女神会所
The historic water town of Wuzhen has been transformed by Xu’s company from a shabby
destination, with 30 to 40 percent of consumption now taking place at night, Xu said.
The move has impressed many in the neighborhood. A female reside
nt surnamed Wen, owner of a snack counter opposite the square, has witnessed s亚博娱乐官网平台后花园
everal conflicts in the past and said she’s very happy the seniors have solved the problem.
亚博娱乐官网平台后花园女神会所Before the new technology was put into use, some dancers worried whether wearing a headset is harmful to their ears or
whether they could all hear the same music at the same time. They found this wasn’t a problem at all.
Originally a small team with a few dozen people when it was founded nine years ago, the Nanning亚博娱乐官网平台后花园
Dream Team is now a large square dance group with 121 members. Members are from Guangxi, Sh
andong, Chongqing and other places and are all retirees above 50, with the oldest 82 years old.
Their daily hour-long square dances are held from 8-9 pm.亚博娱乐官网平台后花园女神会所
Besides their regular evening dancing, the dancers also enter will provincial dance competitions in Guangxi and travel together.
亚博娱乐官网平台后花园Many Chinese netizens and media accounts have forwarded video of the Nanning Dream Team square dancing w

亚博娱乐官网平台后花园als. The park also selected suitable animals for display. For example, they only picked seven out of nine species from
the monkey section as they are more active during night. Also, the giant panda exhibition area will not open at night.亚博娱乐官网平台后花园女神会所
“We have adjusted the light system for the night zoo, with brighter lighting on the roads, water areas, and toilets to secure
亚博娱乐官网平台后花园visitors’ safety while using diffuse lights to simulate a natural moonlight effect in the animals’ living areas,” Zhong added.
“I came to the night zoo because of curiosity about the animals’ behavior during the
nighttime,” said Liu Yufei, a 20-year-old student who visited the night zoo on opening day.亚博娱乐官网平台后花园女神会所
“Since I have class in the daytime, the night zoo provides me a new way to spend the
亚博娱乐官网平台后花园night. There are also fewer tourists at night, and the summer weather is comfortable,” Liu said.
“But the transportation is an issue,” she added.
The night zoo opened six animal-themed exhibition areas, three featu
red performances, animal-themed restaurants, and souvenirs stores.亚博娱乐官网平台后花园
It also launched the “Night Animal Tour” and animal shows at Sea Lion Theater and International Circus Theater.
Zhang Caiyun, another tourist who brought her 6-year-old son to the zoo, said: “the colorful lights and the animal tou亚博娱乐官网平台后花园女神会所
r are more attractive than the daytime activities and I don’t have to worry about my son getting sunburned at night.”
“The closing of the drive-through area is the only regret. It will be a u亚博娱乐官网平台后花园
nique experience to visit rare animals through the dark by tour bus,” Zhang said.
Having prepared for about three years for the night project, the park will evaluate its operation to adjust the layout of the亚博娱乐官网平台后花园女神会所
animals, types of exhibitions, and the night facilities after operating for a while, according to park authorities.
On the same day that the zoo opened, the city also issued a list of cultural and tourist sites that are opening at night. More
than 100 spots were listed, according to Shanghai Municipal Administration of Culture and Tourism.

The battle of China’s 5G smartphone market has intensified with Huawei Technologies

Mate 20X is the first 5G smartphone model that has been approved by China’s telecom industry regulator to connect to the ne

Corp said on Tuesday that its 5G smartphone was available to order domestically.
亚博娱乐官网平台后花园Analysts said the Huawei move is part of the tech giant’s broader push to quickly commercialize the s
