(People's Daily Online) Five simply-built shareable booths, which provide private space for people to rest, have recently attracted attention in Chengdu, capital of southwest China’s Sichuan Province, Sichuan Online reported.|
Available from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m., the 5-square-meter booths, which can be found in business areas and parks, are equipped with home comforts such as chargers, WIFI, a TV, sofa, air conditioning, and an air purifier, providing some respite from the crowds.
After downloading an app and following its instructions, users can open the door to a booth and enjoy some quality alone time for the price of 18 yuan every half an hour. On average, customers use the booths for between 45 minutes and an hour.
The booths are more convenient than hotels and more private and quiet than other options. It's a nice place to rest for a short period, said a user surnamed Wang.
“We entered the Chengdu market this January as we believe that Chengdu locals are stylish, innovative and highly inclusive when it comes to the sharing economy,” said Gao Jing, who came up with the idea of shareable leisure booths.
