Shenzhen has loosened requirements for tourists applying to go on a trip to Hong Kong. Now many areplanning to spend their New Year holiday in the neighboring Special Administrative Region.
Previously, it was much more complicated for many who work in Shenzhen but do not have the Shenzhen resident permit. China Travel Service (Hong Kong) sees more than 100 customers daily who are seeking information about travel to Hong Kong.
The manager of CTS (Hong Kong) says the next tour to the SAR will set out on the first day of the new year. And 43 residents who have no local residence permit in Shenzhen have applied for it. They will spend New Year’s Day in Hong Kong.
For the time being, Shenzhen travel agencies have designed four different tour routes to Hong Kong. But more travel packages are expected to be introduced in the future.
