With the epidemic situation in Beijing improving, residents have been heading to bookstores and public parks to make the most of the pleasant spring weather.

“This is the first time I’ve come to the bookstore to buy a book since the epidemic outbreak,” said a woman surnamed Zhang, who was browsing at Page One bookstore in Sanlitun, Beijing’s Chaoyang district, adding that she has been buying books through online shopping platforms for the past two months.

According to Zhang, she still prefers the feeling of finding "treasures" in bookstores.

In addition to bookstores, public parks have also become a popular destination for Beijing residents. Many visitors have been flocking to Taoranting Park, Chaoyang Park and Honglingjin Park.

Many elderly people come to these parks for leisure activities, while parents like to take their children there for spring outings.

"It's nice to finally get a chance to breathe some fresh air and take a walk after being at home for a while,” a man surnamed Wu said in Taoranting Park.
