Shocked A man brought his girlfriend to meet his parents and he had to buy her a ticket. Why?
Feng Huang (Phoenix) Ancient Town is regarded by many as "China's most beautiful small town". And Mr. Huang is one of its residents. On April 12th, he wanted to bring his girlfriend home to meet his parents for the first time, yet was stopped at the town gate by staff who claimed that no one could enter the scenic area without a ticket with a price of 148 yuan (nearly 24 dollars), except the residents of the town and their immediate family.

"The situation was so embarrassing, especially in front of my girlfriend." Mr. Huang said to a journalist. After quite some negotiations, the staff let Mr. Huang's girlfriend in, in a effort to avoid disturbances to other tourists.

The reason why people need tickets to get into this ancient small town is because on April 10th, the town government combined the small town area with the nearby Nan Hua Mountain Holly Phoenix Scenic Area. Therefore visitors must pay a fee in order to enter this small town, which they didn't have to do before April 10th. And the residents, their immediate family and vendors have to go through a troublesome application to get gate passes.

It's too much economy, stupid !
