Tourism challenges and solutions for Asia and Shanghai



Asia is the preferred destination for many tourists. Asian countries have particularly attractive cultures and landscapes. Since the popularity of transnational tourism business, the number of tourists to Asia has increased rapidly. Many Asian countries have greatly developed their local economies through the consumption of foreign tourists.

However, Asian tourism is currently facing many challenges and difficulties.

The global outbreak of COVID-19 has seriously affected the development of Asian tourism. People are no longer keen on traveling long distances as usual. Many Asian countries have imposed many restrictions on tourism in order to prevent the spread of novel coronavirus in China.

As one of the most famous cities in China, Shanghai is a large coastal city. Shanghai has a pleasant climate all year round. The best seasons for tourists to visit Shanghai are spring and summer. After China's reform and opening up, Shanghai's economy has developed rapidly. Shanghai is famous for its developed economy and trade, with a strong urban cultural atmosphere.

Shanghai has its own tourism theme. Shanghai is famous for its theme park sites. Shanghai Disneyland attracts a large number of tourists every year. Shanghai Disneyland holds many cultural festivals or activities every year to attract tourists. Tourists often wear different styles of clothes to enter the park.


COVID-19 has brought great resistance to Shanghai's tourism development. Before the epidemic of novel coronavirus pneumonia, more than 500000 tourists arrived in Shanghai every month. Since the prevalence of novel coronavirus pneumonia, Shanghai has closed many public places. At the same time, Shanghai suspended many activities. Many tourist attractions in Shanghai are limited by the number of tourists. In addition, Shanghai's logistics and transportation are still at a standstill.

Here are some suggestions that may help.

In terms of policy, the attitude of Shanghai government towards tourism needs to be supportive. The cultural tourism department of Shanghai should carry out various activities to attract tourists. After the epidemic, the government should restore tourism through the publicity effect and symbolic significance of the festival. Tourism related industries should follow the policies and instructions of the government.

Strict epidemic prevention is the most important part of the tourism recovery project. At the same time, this is also the link most likely to cause problems.

When a large number of tourists visit Shanghai, what Shanghai must do is to prevent the epidemic and ensure the health of tourists. In order to realize the sustainable recovery of tourism, epidemic prevention is one of the most important measures. Epidemic prevention and control in place means that tourists are confident in tourism. When the tourist destination receives a large number of tourists and reaches zero infection, the tourism industry of the destination will recover rapidly.

Hotel industry is closely related to tourism. During the outbreak of the epidemic, the hotel industry suffered serious losses. The tourism restoration project is an opportunity for the hotel industry. The traditional hotel industry is difficult to attract tourists' attention. On the contrary, the innovative hotel industry has great advantages in the new wave of tourism trends.

Hotels in Shanghai should provide safe and reliable accommodation for tourists. In addition, hotel staff should understand the prevention and control of epidemics. The hotel should provide guests with customized services and new entertainment equipment. For example, during the outbreak of the epidemic, guests can play online games in the hotel or exercise in the personal gym.

I believe more and more people will go to Shanghai. The economic growth brought by tourism will bring more help to the development of Shanghai. The revival of tourism in Shanghai will promote the revival of tourism in China and even Asia.

Other parts of Asia can also take Shanghai as a reference for action.
