Home to more than 20,000 marine animals, the Aquarium of the Bay, located on the historic San Francisco waterfront at PIER 39, is making an effort to attract more Chinese visitors. Besides hosting a Chinese New Year celebration complete with traditional music, dance, and crafts, the Fog City attraction has boosted communications in Mandarin with QR codes that describe exhibits and a Daily Guide. Plus, they have partnered with several mobile payment platforms — Alipay, WeChat Pay, and UnionPay —to deliver travelers a seamless buying experience.
