    Casino at Macau drawing visitors away from Hong Kong, WorldJournal,2006-9-23


    黃金周 澳門搶走香港生意

    「沒景沒賭場、迪士尼又小」 大陸客遊港人數估計較去年少兩成




    【本報香港訊】香港旅遊業響起警鐘。繼五一黃金周香港接待大陸旅客量低於澳門後,即將來到的十一亦大吹淡風 ,香港旅遊界人士直言「黃金周」不再,大陸赴港旅行團至今未見報名熱潮,部分專門接待大陸客的賓館生意估計 較去年減少兩成。



    業界人士歸咎澳門不斷有大型新娛樂設施投入服務,像新近開業的永利等,但香港旅遊業了無新意,恐旅遊業競爭 力不斷退步。旅發局原來估計今年有2700萬名旅客到港,早前雖透露可能難以達標,但仍密鑼緊鼓在大陸宣傳 ,希望吸引更多旅客到港,不過,距離十一只有不足兩周,大陸仍未出現報名赴港熱潮,預訂香港賓館情況亦慢熱 ,但新近投入服務的澳門賭場及度假項目備受矚目,成為大陸旅行團及個人遊票務的熱門查詢之一。

    香港旅遊業賓館聯會主席劉功成表示,十一黃金周大陸客訂房情況有下跌趨勢,主要受到鄰近澳門賭場林立及香港 無牌經營賓館的影響,令客量流失。他透露,黃金周期間,部分賓館生意更整體下跌兩成。雖然近年開放個人遊的 省市愈來愈多,但不少大陸客卻被澳門日益完善的旅遊景點及五光十色賭場吸引,紛紛轉往澳門度假 。


    劉續說:「過往大陸客人在港逗留五天,但近年只逗留兩天,其餘三天則會到澳門旅遊,香港沒景,迪士尼又小, 又沒有賭場,如何吸引遊客?」酒店業協會總幹事呂尚懷亦稱,大陸客於黃金周到港的人數很難再有 突破。

    Macau steals business from Hong Kong During Golden Week

    "Disneyland too small, No Casino and No attractions in HK"

    20% less mainland visitors to Hong Kong predicted this October Golden Week

    According to World Journal, sources from Hong Kong Travel and Tourism Industry are predicting that the increasing number of new casinos and Integrated resorts in Macau are drawing more visitors to Macau rather than to Hong Kong. Macau received more visitors than Hong Kong during May Golden Week this year, and this scenario might happen again for the coming Golden Week in October.

    "Mainland Visitors used to spend 5 days in Hong Kong. But they tend to stay 2 days in Hong Kong and 3 days in Macau recently", "Hong Kong Disneyland is so small, and no casino in Hong Kong" "

    Er, isn't there a lot of other attractions in Hong Kong other than HKDL? It's a cultured city, there has to be more than just HKDL and no casinos to blame.
