不丹对国外旅客推行的“250美元”最低消费政策,或影响印度人

体球网KOLKATA/ SILIGURI: Next-door neighbour Bhutan could soon be out of reach for Indian tourists on a budget. Sometime next year, the Himalayan kingdom proposes to extend to regional tourists — those from India, Bangladesh and the Maldives — the mandatory “minimum daily package” of $250 (around Rs 17,700) that is currently applicable only to foreigners.

加尔各答/西里古里:对印度旅客来说,去邻国不丹度假旅游将会很快就会超出预算了。明年的某个时候,这个喜马拉雅王国计划向来自印度、孟加拉国和马尔代夫地域的旅客推行250美元(约合17700卢比)的强制性性“每日最低消费”,目前仅可用于别的国外人。

While the price includes a $65 “sustainable development fee”, visa charges, 3-star accommodation, meals, intra-Bhutan transport, camping equipment and the services of a guide, travel operators fear the cost of spending a day in Bhutan would still be higher than what most Indian tourists can afford.

虽然这250美元包括65美元的“可持续发展费”、签证花销、三星级寄宿、饮食、不丹中国交通、露营机器和导游员服务,度假旅游经营者还是担心,在不丹度假旅游一天的成本仍将高出大都印度旅客的承受工作能力。

Dorji Dhradhul, the director general of Tourism Council of Bhutan (TCB), said the proposal was in line with his country’s high-value-low-impact tourism policy. He did not say if and when the rules would take effect. “This policy draft has been under preparation for four years,” said a source associated with Bhutan tourism.

不丹度假旅游理事会(TCB)总干事Dorji Dhradhul称,这个提议合乎不丹“天应用价值,低影响”的度假旅游政策。Dhradhul未透露这些规定何时起效。一名与不丹度假旅游业关于的消息人士称:“这项政策草案已经筹办了四年。”

“At present, regional tourists have to pay Rs 50 to Rs 500 a person for every entry to different sightseeing points. If the rule changes, the sustainable development fee alone would cost a family of five Rs 23,000 a day. That is quite high for budget travellers, who constitute 65% to 70% of the Indian visitors to Bhutan,” said Samrat Sanyal, general secretary of the Himalayan Hospitality and Tourism Development Network.

喜马拉雅酒店餐厅和度假旅游发展互联网秘书长Samrat Sanyal称:“目前,这些地域的旅客必须支付50至500卢比的花销才能进入不同样的景点。如果条件变更,仅可持续发展费一项,一个五口之家天天就需要支付23000卢比。这对于预算有限的旅客来说是相当高的,而这类旅客占去往不丹的印度旅客的65%到70%。”

Anil Punjabi, chairman (east) of Travel Agents Federation of India, said Bhutanese authorities were yet to notify the change, but the buzz in tourism circles was that it would be implemented next year. “About 90% of Indian tourists to Bhutan take the road route to enter the country through Phuentsholing, bordering Jaigaon in West Bengal. This is possible because Indians currently don’t require a visa. If Bhutan makes the minimum daily package applicable to Indian tourists, too, I’m afraid it will no longer be an affordable destination,” he added.

印度旅行社联盟主席Anil Punjabi表示,不丹内地政府尚未通报这一变更,但度假旅游界的传闻是,这一政策将于明年施行。他说:“去往不丹的印度旅客中,大致有90%是根据与西孟加拉邦杰冈交界的彭措林入关的。印度人目前不需要签证。如果不丹也对印度旅客推行最低消费要求,对印度旅客而言也许不丹将不再是一个玩得起的度假旅游目的地。”

体球网Short-hop tourists, especially large groups visiting Darjeeling or Sikkim, account for the most Indian visitors to Bhutan. They stay a maximum of two-three days, often sharing rooms and spending little on the frills.

去往不丹的印度旅客首要是短途旅客,尤其是去往大吉岭或锡金的大型度假旅游团。他们最多住两到三天,一般是合住一间房。

The rules governing tourism in Bhutan were approved in 1972, paving the way for the first group of 287 official tourists to visit in 1974.

1972年,不丹根据了度假旅游业管理诀窍条例,为1974年第一批287名官方网旅客的到访铺开了道路。
