The performance of the tour guide made tourists worry about their own Personal safety, around 5 pm on the 7th, the bus took the tourists to the hotel. “Everybody had the idea of ​​running away.” Mr. Liang said that they did not decide to take their luggage until they observed a good course at dinner. At the beginning, we are not ready to take the luggage. The ID cards are all put on the body.”

At 17 o'clock on the afternoon of the 8th, 10 tourists and team leaders met at the duty-free center near the airport. 11 people went back to the country on the plane at 3:10 am on the 9th in accordance with the previous plan.

The country is vigorously rectifying

In addition to overseas "black tour guides", in recent years, the domestic guides have also repeatedly exposed the incidents of compulsory shopping spending and abusive tourists. Although both tourism companies and tourism practitioners are also punished, the "black tour guide" incident has continued to continue.

Experts and industry analysts believe that the current development of the tourism market is immature, single tourism products, and low-cost competitive tourism enterprises are the incentives.

According to Xinhua International News, industry insiders in Thailand and VietnamIt is emphasized that the root cause of the "black tour guides" banned is that some travel agencies have organized "low-cost groups" and even "zero-price groups" to attract tourists. After the tourists arrived in Thailand, in order to reduce the cost and not hire local guides, the agency chose to hire “black tour guides” to lead the tourists to high-spending shopping malls and restaurants to recoup their profits. Therefore, tourists should reduce the chance of encountering "black tour guides" from the source. The key is to refuse to participate in low-cost groups and zero-price groups.

According to the Xinhua News Agency and China Research Institute of Tourism Yang Jinsong, an associate researcher, said in an interview, “If it is lower than the cost price, guides who work in front-line jobs can only fill pits through shopping and self-funded projects if they fail to reach the threshold. It is expected that they will induce tourists to consume in various ways, and even some extreme cases will occur."

The maximum penalty for violation of the regulations is 300,000 yuan. “One of the reasons why the illegal phenomenon continues to be repeated is that the illegal costs are too low.”

“Many travel agency officials and tour guides have weak legal awareness. The basic problems are illegal operations.” Yunnan University of Finance and Economics Xu Nanxuan, president of the Institute of Tourism and Culture Industry, said that the relevant rules and regulations are also not specific enough to implement.

In order to further strengthen the orderly regulation of the tourism market, from January to March this year, a number of bad events, such as the forced use of tourist guides in individual tourist areas or the forced consumption of tourists in disguised form, and the “black leader” beating of tourists, and culture The Ministry of Tourism and the Ministry of Tourism launched a special campaign to rectify the crackdown on forced consumer spending and illegally engaged in guided tour activities.
