(ECNS) - Some of China's top tourist destinations have been left off of the first "price reliability" list issued by the country's tourism authority, according to The Beijing Times.
The list included 1,801 tourist sites from all over the country. However, the Forbidden City, the Summer Palace, the Temple of Heaven, Jiuzhaigou and Huang Mountain, all world famous tourist destinations, were left out.
The China National Tourism Administration (CNTA) released its first list of "national tourist sites with price reliability" on Monday. Beijing had 31 sites included.
To make the list, tourist spots were required to commit to six potential policies, including a one-ticket system, reliable prices, favorable policies for disabled visitors, appointment discounts, publication of pricing structures, and set prices for three years.
The highest rated tourist sites in the country - those with a 5A or 4A rating - joined the list, with one-third of 4A resorts making their way in.
Some of the tourist destinations included in the list had reportedly just raised their ticket prices in 2014, including Suzhou's Humble Administrator's Garden and Tiger Hill. In contrast, several major tourist destinations in Beijing with reasonable prices were left out, including the Forbidden City and Prince Gong Mansion, which have not raised prices for 12 and 7 years, respectively.
Staff from some of the sites that missed out say they had not heard of the list.
