【看英文中國郵報學英文】中國大陸政府本月1日全面封殺47城市自由行,接著各省市自9月將陸續限縮團配額,旅行業同業公會全聯會表示表示,目前已知道8個省市包含廣東、北京、上海、四川、浙江、天津、寧夏、江西省開會討論第4季中國大陸客團來台情況,策略大概是10月砍半,11、12月剩3成,預計9到12月旅行團將少40萬人次。

After the Chinese government banned residents from 47 cities to solo travel in Taiwan on Aug. 1, eight provinces and cities said they will further extend the ban to tour groups, leading to decrease of 400,000 people traveling to Taiwan from September to December, according to the Travel Agent Association of R.O.C. Taiwan (旅行業同業公會全聯會). The eight provinces and cities include Guangdong, Beijing, Shanghai, Sichuan, Zhejiang, Tianjin, Ningxia and Jiangxi. As far as the association knows, the quota of tour groups in October is cut in half, and 30 percent will remain between November and December.

旅遊業者李奇嶽呼籲,東南亞是潛力市場,人數仍有極大的努力空間,建議可開放東南亞免簽,目前僅剩印、越兩國尚未開放,並鼓勵包機來台。

Travel agent Li Chi-yu said there is good market potential in South Asia so he expects more tourists to come from there. He suggested a visa waiver for those countries, especially Indonesia and Vietnam where they still need visas to travel to Taiwan. He also encouraged authorities to promote charter flights.

李奇嶽舉例,泰國每年赴日本旅遊人次為100萬人次,但來台卻只有幾十萬。

For instance, Li said, there are 1 million people traveling from Thailand to Japan, but only a few thousand coming to Taiwan.

關於日韓、港澳市場,李奇嶽認為難有爆量成長,但也絕不能鬆懈宣傳。

Li added that it is challenging to immediately increase the number of tourists from Japan, South Korea, Honk Kong and Macau, but Taiwan should not slack off when it comes to promoting in these regions.
