The Youth I.D.E.A.S. announced its latest report on
Diversifying Hong Kong’s Attractions to Boost Tourism
The Youth I.D.E.A.S. (established by HKFYG Youth Research Centre) has released its study on “Diversifying Hong Kong’s Attractions to Boost Tourism”. Data gathered from 570 visitors showed that only 14.4% come here to shop and only 17.5% are interested in luxury products. Visitors are more interested in humanized and localized feature travel.
The study recommended diversifying the development of the tourism industry by accrediting native guides who have professional knowledge on specific communities and the promotion of local travel routes suggested by community organizations. It also recommended the government to formulate overall policy on historical architectures in order to strengthen Hong Kong’s attraction.
