The Water Supplies Department announced earlier that it has decided to open the Sham Shui Po Service Reservoir with limited reservations. Registration will be opened on Wednesday (December 1) for the public to book guided tours to enter the reservoir. The "Former Sham Shui Po Service Reservoir Guided Tour" is tentatively held until June 14 next year.

This is another non-commercial leisure hotspot after the West Kowloon Cultural District Visual Culture Museum M+.


The reservation system was open for registration at 9 am on Wednesday, and the reporter of "Hong Kong 01" found that less than two hours after the opening of registration, the system has shown that the personal application time slot for the next two months has not been selected. I believe it is full. There is a certain interest in local cultural tours.

This also shows that heritage conservation work is worth continuing to develop and increase the public's sense of belonging to the local community.

Attractive for non-commercial activities

In addition to local culture, art-related activities also have considerable appeal to the public.

For example, the M+ Museum had more than 11,000 visits on the first day of its opening. In early December, it announced a new appointment arrangement, stating that it currently only accepts visitors with appointments. Until further notice, it can be seen that there are too many visitors, and the museum needs urgent amendments. Admission restrictions.

In fact, in November of last year, the HKTB also launched the "Reward You Travel Hong Kong" program. The public can exchange receipts for spending over 800 yuan at the physical stores of local retail and catering merchants for a local tour quota. The plan is free for citizens The redemption of 10,000 local tour places means that the places are full within four days, reflecting that local tours are attractive to the public as a leisure activity.

The government can cooperate in operation and promotion

In summary, one of the reasons for the popularity of local groups, cultural, artistic and historical sites hotspots may be due to the fact that under the influence of the epidemic, it is difficult for the public to visit other places for tourism, so they turn to seek local leisure places, and most of the activities in Hong Kong in the past All involve commercial and consumer activities. When alternative options appear, they can attract the attention of the public. The government should seize the opportunity to provide multi-faceted assistance for the development of cultural, artistic, and even historical affairs.

Citizens are waiting for admission to the M+ Museum.

Take the "Former Sham Shui Po Service Reservoir Guided Tour" as an example. The upcoming guided tour will depart every day in the morning and afternoon. At the same time, there will also be five group time slots each week. The government expects to accept about 1,000 people to sign up each month. The guided tour group actually accepts only about 33 people per day in disguise, but the capacity of the department should actually be sufficient to handle more tourists. If there are no factors affecting conservation, the bureau can actually consider opening up more places.

Reflecting on the travel habits of Hong Kong people in the past, popular tourist destinations are nothing more than China, Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan. Some travel experts will even recommend a two-day, one-night or even one-day round trip to the above-mentioned places.

One possible factor is that Hong Kong lacked places where citizens can pass their time in the past. If the bureau can seize opportunities for development, it will not only allow Hong Kong people to stay in Hong Kong for consumption, but also strengthen the local tourism industry in the long run, and even attract more foreign tourists to visit Hong Kong. .

In fact, the government has also been vigorously developing local tourism in recent years. For example, it has launched the "Green Living Local Tourism Encouragement Program" to provide incentives to travel agencies to promote green tourism and support tourism and related industries. The Financial Secretary, Chen Maobo, has In the government budget for the 2021-2022 fiscal year, it is stated that it has set aside 500 million yuan to optimize country park facilities as the content of "quality city construction".

When the plan is established and resources have been allocated to related projects, the next step is to focus on implementation and promotion, deepen local non-material development, and consolidate local soft power.
