Universal Beijing Resort opens

BEIJING: The Universal Beijing Resort, currently the largest in scale worldwide, opened to the public yesterday.

The resort’s opening coincided with this year’s Mid-Autumn Festival holiday from Sept 19 to 21.

“I’m so excited to see Optimus Prime. It brought back my childhood,” said Wu Siyuan, one of the first batch of tourists on the opening day.

The resort, covering 4sq km, includes the highly anticipated Universal Studios Beijing theme park, the Universal CityWalk, and two hotels.

It promises to give tourists an immersive visiting experience, with seven themed lands covering 37 recreational facilities and landmark attractions, as well as 24 entertainment shows.

Located in Beijing’s Tongzhou District, where the Beijing Municipal Administrative Center is seated, the resort is the fifth Universal Studios theme park globally, the third in Asia, and the first in China.

The resort, a new landmark in Beijing, is expected to boost the establishment of Beijing as an international consumption hub and a new engine for the growth of China’s culture and tourism industry amid the Covid-19 pandemic. — Xinhua
