More tour groups will travel to Hong Kong in the next month with the relaxation of local tourism restrictions, the culture minister said on Saturday.
The tourism industry has received at least eight groups registered for a tour in Hong Kong this month as the city started to welcome inbound travelers entering and dining in designated attractions, said Secretary for Culture, Sports and Tourism, Kevin Yeung Yun-hung in a radio program, claiming more tourists will arrive in December.
Hong Kong saw the first tour group arrive from Thailand on 19 November, after a lengthy period of absence, for a four-day, three-night trip, with group members required to undergo PCR tests only twice in the period and a rapid antigen test each day under the government’s "group-in-group-out scheme" arrangement.
However, it is learned that the group was forced to have meals in hotel rooms during their trip as they failed to arrange with the restaurants on their travel itinerary in advance.
