Similar to previous enhancements made to Attractions, improvements have been made to TIH’s Opening Hours by replacing the existing free text format with a structured data format, allowing your applications to filter content based on opening hours. Categories impacted include Accommodations, Bars & Clubs, Food & Beverages, Malls & Shops, and Tours. Both existing and new data formats will be available via User APIs for three months; after which, they will be deprecated. For those using our Contributor APIs, you will need to have your content mapped onto the new format with immediate effect. For a full list of APIs affected by this change, click here

An example of existing free text format:
{ …. “openingHours”: [ “Everyday whole day. Public Holidays opened from 8:30am to 2:30pm” ], …}

An example of new structured data format:

      "day": "daily",
      "openTime": “00:00",
      "closeTime": “23:59",
      "description": "",
      "sequenceNumber": 1,
