The annual Shanghai Tourism Festival kicked off Friday in the eastern Chinese city, aiming to boost consumption and promote tourism.

This year's festival, scheduled until Oct 6, features multi-themed activities held both online and offline. Strict anti-epidemic measures, such as online reservation and limiting the number of visitors, have been adopted in view of the COVID-19 situation, according to local tourism authorities.

Heavy discounts on tickets to 82 scenic spots from Sept 17 to 24 have been offered, and a 24-hour livestreaming of Shanghai's over 150 historic buildings will be held to celebrate the city's history and culture.

The Shanghai Tourism Festival was first launched in 1990.
