Gulangyu Island has been planning to provide visitors with explicit and arranged information of its most popular, special and reputed scenic spots by using quick response code, and the plan is being carried out now.

At present, sign boards have been installed in the Sunlight Rock, Shuzhuang Garden and Haoyue Garden, etc. When scanned into a phone, these small, square images allow tourists to access complete introduction of the scenic spots.

Information provided by the codes, normally including videos and pictures, has made the island trip more dynamic and interactive.

In addition to this, the Gulangyu Island Management Committee has officially launched a client software for smartphone users an effort to better serve its fellow tourists.

The smartphone app, called “Smart Gulangyu”, is co-developed by the committee and China Mobile Xiamne branch and is offered both in Android version and IOS version.

The app can offer smartphone users a full range of services ranging from news, weather, food, drinks, B&B inns, scenic spots, ferry information, travel routes, real-time tourist numbers on the island to ticket booking and guiding services.
