The forthcoming Christmas and New Year’s holiday season have sent the tour cost from Hainan to Hong Kong and Macao soaring by 20%.
"There has been a surge in package tours to Hong Kong and Macao," said a sales manager surnamed Wu at a Haikou travel agent.
The five-day package tour, usually about 3,000 yuan for each person during the regular season, has risen to 3,580 yuan during the Xmas and New Year’s holiday season.
The rise in traveling costs has been caused by high demand, as many travelers flock to the city to take advantage of Christmas and New Year’s holiday shopping promotions offered at many stores. So the price of flights and accommodation have rising accordingly.
In contrast, Taiwan does not appear to have a marked increase in package tour prices during the holiday period. An eight-day package tour in Taiwan is set at 5,880 yuan during the New Year’s holiday.
