“黄金周”放假方式拟调整
[ 2006-09-30 09:06 ]

从1999年“十一”长假至今,尽管每一个黄金周在出游人数和市场销售额上都能创下历史新高,但这种制度的弊病已经逐渐凸显,如交通压力大、景区超负荷。那么,是否会因此取消黄金周或分散假期?对此,全国假日办执行主任、国家旅游局副局长王志发在接受专访时表示,黄金周确实是消费者所需,但考虑到目前的拥挤等问题,他们将考虑对放假方式进行专门的研究论证,并向国务院提出意见和建议。

 

 

China may overhaul a vacation scheme which forces workers across the country to take their three weeks of paid holiday at the same time.

The system of "Golden Weeks" was introduced in 1999 in an effort to boost domestic consumption and tourism revenue.

But it has also spawned major frustrations with overcrowded tourist sites, scalpers charging exorbitant prices for rail tickets and booked-out hotels.

"We will begin research in the near future on how to arrange public holidays," said Wang Zhifa, vice director of the National Tourism Administration, as saying ahead of next week's seven-day break for National Day.

All Chinese workers, except for those assuring essential services, are compelled to take the specified three weeks off and are not allowed to choose to take their vacations at different times.

The first week comes at the Lunar New Year or Spring Festival, which falls in January or February, the second week centres on Labour Day on May 1 and the third begins on October 1, China's National Day.

"The quality of people's travelling experience has been negatively influenced during the past six years due to the contradictions between consumer demands and service capacity," Wang said.
