      China Renews Ban on Package Tours to Korea
     작성자   :   Ms.Abby-m    (17-12-22 10:58:40    Hit : 260)



The Chinese government has again
banned package tours to Korea effective January next year despite an agreement
between the two countries to normalize relations.



Chinese travel industry sources on
Thursday said the China's National Tourism Administration summoned travel
agents from Shandong Province this week and informed them that group tours to
Korea will be banned again.



The tourism authority also told them
that group tourists who are set to depart for Korea in December need approval
from the provincial government. So far group tourists had to get permission
only from municipal tourism authorities.



Some travel agencies in Beijing are
still selling group tours to Korea for January, but industry sources say they
will be summoned early next week and given the same instructions.



On Tuesday, the Chinese government
rejected applications from at least three travel agencies in Beijing seeking
visas for group tourists to Korea. One travel industry source said, "We
had expected group tours to Korea to expand after President Moon Jae-in's visit
to China, and it's a shock to see the exact opposite happening."



Many in the industry wonder why
Beijing is taking the step even as the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang are
just around the corner. One official at the Korean Embassy in China said,
"The decision runs counter to efforts to expand bilateral trade and
cooperation."
