Advocacy letter to President Hu Jingtao|
The Honorable Hu Jingtao
President of PRC,
Building of China Council,
Dec 12, 2004
Dear President Hu:
I m writing to you as a citizen of Beijing to express concern for the rising price of entrance fee to the six famous sites in Beijing, which arouses arguments in our district. The six Beijing-based UNESCO world heritage which will raise their entrance fees are the hugely popular Summer Palace, the Forbidden City, the Badaling section of the Great Wall, the Temple of Heaven and two of the Thirteen Ming Tombs.
It is a fortunate that Beijing has many famous sites. When our friends and remote relatives come to Beijing, We can introduce them to visit the sites. And within the weekend, We could go with family to spend good time there. The prices for the sites were reasonable in proportion to my family income. But if the price rises again, It would be unaffordable for us to go. I have also showed concern that the high entrance fees will keep low-income visitors outside the world's famous cultural relics.
As a resident of Beijing, I request the Government to remain the prices. I think the best way for the value of a site to shine through is by allowing people to appreciate, understand and study it, not by raising its entrance fee. Many other countries display their history in museums for free, or for a minimal charge.
I urge the government to make efforts to protect our site in another way. The Government should protect their heritage through limiting the number of visitors at the peak time, or introduce a system from foreign country to have reservation.
We thank you for your attention to these matters and look forward to new method of taking care of sites rather than raising its entrance fee.
Cc: The Honorable Wen Jiabao, Premier of China
The Honorable, Liu Qi, Mayor of Beijing
