On Wednesday's Backchat we're looking at how Hong Kong is doing in reviving its tourism industry.
Tour groups have returned to the SAR after quarantine-free travel was resumed with the mainland, but residents in Hung Hom and To Kwa Wan are now complaining about crowded streets, noise and litter left by visitors joining so-called “budget tours”.
The executive director of the Travel Industry Authority, Annie Fonda, says the current situation isn’t ideal, and stakeholders are working to find a solution.
Overall, latest figures show that some 1.46 million tourists came to Hong Kong last month — more than eighty percent of them from the mainland. This is triple the number from January, but is still two-thirds down from pre-pandemic levels.
After 9:45, we'll speak to an expert about higher tuition fees at the English Schools Foundation.
