There have been complaints from tourists about excessive fees by photographers working the Bund. Now this is being brought under control
Photography stalls will be under uniform administration. Stalls without an official license will not be allowed to do business along the new Bund scenic walk.
According to the new rule, the fee for taking photos at each stall will be the same – currently set at $1.02 per picture. Customers can also download their pictures from a Website at no cost.
Shanghai Daily reported renovation of the Bund scenic walk began in February 2009. The project will make the riverfront more pedestrian friendly and be ready in time for the World Expo, which opens on May 1.
