  Ocean Park steps up efforts to lure visitors

  海洋公园努力吸引游客

  Hong Kong's tourism market is struggling, with the number of visitors from the mainland on the decline. Now Ocean Park, one of Hong Kong’s top attractions, is stepping up efforts to lure more in. But they're not just focusing on the Mainland, but tourists from all around Asia.

  随着大陆游客数量下降,香港的旅游市场正面临着严峻的应战。往常海洋公园,香港最吸引人的景点之一,正努力吸引更多的游客。但是他们不只仅把眼光投向大陆游客,而是整个亚洲的游客。

  Ocean Park has long been one of Hong Kong's star tourist attractions. But it has seen a 14 percent dip in visitors over the past year. In 2014, Ocean Park saw a total of 7.8 million visits – the highest yearly number ever recorded. But in 2015 ticket sales slumped by over a million, to 6.7 million visitors.

  海洋公园不时是香港的星级旅游景点之一,但是去年公园的游客数量下降了14%。2014年一年,海洋公园接待了780万游客,创历史新高,但是2015年门票销售下降到了670万,下降幅度高达1百万。

  The resort puts this down to a drop in mainland tourists coming to Hong Kong. Last year, mainland visitors to the park fell by 20 to 30 percent.

  景区以为大陆游客数量减少是主要因素,去年大陆来公园的游客下降了20-30%。

  The drop came after the number of mainland visitors to Hong Kong fell 3 per cent last year, amid a strong Hong Kong dollar and slower economic growth on the mainland. The challenge now facing attractions like Ocean Park, is how to stay competitive amid a city-wide tourism slump.

  与此同时,去年大陆来香港旅游的游客下降了3%,在这期间香港的港币强势而且大陆经济增长迟缓。往常像海洋公园一类的景区面临的应战是,在整个香港的游客数量下降的状况下,如何坚持自身的竞争力。

  Combining rides, entertainment, a zoo and an aquarium, Ocean Park is one of the most popular theme parks in Asia, and even the world. It now offers free Wi-fi and more interactive exhibits and games to ensure visitors the best experience.

  把交通,娱乐,动物园和水族馆分离在一起,海洋公园是亚洲以至世界最受欢送的主题公园之一,它向游客提供免费WiFi效劳,以及更多互动的展览和游戏以确保游客拥有最美好的阅历。

  Mainland visitors account for 50 percent of tickets sold, while local visitors- who have had many promotions targeted towards them this year- make up around 30 to 35 percent. And there's been also a rise in Southeast Asian visitors.

  大陆游客占到公园游客的50%,而当地的游客(今年针对当地游客有许多促销活动)占到了30-35%,东南亚的游客数量也在上升。

  It’s noticeable that India – Asia’s third-largest economy – has become Ocean Park’s next target, with visitors from the country seeing 30 per cent year-on-year growth. Compared with mainland tour groups, foreign visitors tend to stay longer in the park, which means greater consumption.

  值得注意的是,印度(亚洲的第三大经济体)已经成为海洋公园的下一个目的,来自这个国度的游客数量每年增长30%,与大陆游览团相比,外国游客在公园停留的时间更长,这也就意味着更大的消费。

  A new subway line is expected to reach the park at the end of this year. And with a new hotel and a water park being unveiled in the near future, the park is expected to become a brand-new resort area.

  一条新的地铁线在今年年底有望通到公园,不久的未来,还将有一个新的酒店和一个水上乐园,海洋公园将成为一个全新的旅游胜地。
