Do you think the recent price hike for tourist hot spots is reasonable?

Do you think the recent price hike for tourist hot spots is reasonable?

Ticket prices to more than 20 major scenic spots across China will experience price hikes over the coming months, Economic Information reports.

According to the latest ticket information, prices will rise by 20 to 60 percent, the first increase of this type since 2008.

Surveys suggest that high maintenance costs, lack of travel programs and peer pressure are the main causes for the increase in ticket prices in China.

However, China's National Development and Reform Commission stipulates that ticket prices for scenic spots should be adjusted at 3 year intervals, and the deadline expires this year, another reason for the increase.

As ticket prices soar, services and facilities in these places are going in the opposite direction. Many tourists complain about the lack of benches and washrooms.
