To promote the "Beautiful Beijing and Charming Winter" initiative, the Beijing Tourism Administration (BTA) will give out 100,000 free entrance tickets for scenic spots to Hong Kong residents in order to encourage them to visit Beijing, according to the Hong Kong Association of China Travel Organizers, Ltd. (HACTO) on Nov. 30.

Hong Kong residents may log on to to register and seek the opportunities to win free entrance tickets from Dec. 6 to Dec. 15.

As one of the focuses for the development of Beijing's tourism industry, Beijing's winter tourist products have developed into a certain scale and produced a brand effect.

The winter tourism activities in Beijing are colorful, including an ice and snow festival in the Longqing Gorge, a hot spring festival in Changping, temple fairs in eight urban districts and rich ski activities. This is very suitable for Hong Kong residents, who cannot spend white Christmas in Hong Kong, because it allows them to enjoy the glamour of the winter in Beijing.

Furthermore, some of Beijing's district and county-level tourist bureaus and firms will also offer free tickets to ski resorts and hot spring scenic spots.
