The forty-first session of the World Heritage Committee is currently in Poland historical and cultural city of Krakow held in July 8th local time of the meeting, Chinese inscription project – “Gulangyu Islet international community history” by the world heritage Conference final, successfully inscribed on the world heritage list, become the fifty-second world heritage project Chinese. So far, China’s total number of world heritage has ranked first in the world.
Gulangyu Islet world heritage, also make the total number of World Heritage China ranked first in the world, gratifying. But after the success of the inscription, it will have to face “how to limit the flow”, which tests the wisdom of management, but do not know whether Gulangyu Islet will hand over a perfect answer sheet
After the successful declaration of any place, visitors will hurry up, I’m afraid Gulangyu Islet is no exception. It is understood that in recent years, the number of visitors to Gulangyu Islet has risen sharply. In 2009, the number of tourists was 5 million 750 thousand, and in 2014 it reached 12 million 460 thousand. This is a good thing for the tourists, scenic area, the Gulangyu Islet, and after the inscription success, tourists will certainly be more, after all, the title of world cultural heritage is to attract tourists to the best of a gilded signboard. Each scenic spot has a certain amount of tourists carrying capacity. Although from the current situation, the number of tourists has not yet had a negative impact on Gulangyu Islet’s historic buildings, but it has a negative impact on the environmental level. The international monuments and monuments Council believes that the number of visitors is a major threat to the island’s tangible assets and the environment, especially during holidays and peak seasons. According to the relevant reports, Gulangyu Islet has the largest number of people per day, reaching 50 thousand people, including 15 thousand residents and commuters, so the number of visitors per day is actually 35 thousand. The most appropriate number of tourists and commuters is 25 thousand. Obviously, the local government and the tourism sector must be sensitive to this number. The international monuments and monuments Council believes that effective tourism management is a key factor in preserving the integrity of cultural heritage. Then, how can the local tourist department limit tourists?
“Limiting” trick seems to be many, the most effective is likely to raise ticket prices. But with tickets to scare the tourists, this is clearly not a good way to travel, is the most taboo. Limit visitors, visitors must be limited to comfort. Tourists from all over the world come from afar, all of them are friends, and the tourists are blocked out because of the need to protect the scenic spots. This is understandable for tourists. But with the move up tickets can not do.
In my opinion, the tourists, on the one hand to do “information services” is now “Internet plus” era, tourists tickets can be so, on the Internet, whether there are scenic tickets available for sale, has been sold to many, these information are available at the web, so that visitors do not go to the scenic area only know oneself is not to go today. Public information, tourists more convenient, will feel comfortable, on the other hand, but also to promote the local people to advocate, in the tourist season to foreign tourists, at the same time, but also eliminate the “cattle”, and some use of illegal means to enter the scenic area.
Gulangyu Islet inscription after the success of the inevitable “limit flow”, “to control tourists”, but how to “control” and “limit”, it is necessary to test the management of the wisdom of managers.
