The tourist business in the metropolis almost completely stopped

In one of the seaports of Hong Kong, a huge parking lot was discovered, where hundreds of tourist buses are idle. Apparently, multi-colored cars were brought here due to the lack of demand for the tourist sector.

Hong Kong is one of the most overpopulated metropolitan areas. At the same time, it is almost the most popular tourist sector in China and one of the most visited places on the planet. Over the past year alone, more than 56 million tourists from all over the world have visited Hong Kong. In this regard, all kinds of excursions to attractions are developed in the metropolis, which tourists most often view in motion from the windows of huge buses.

However, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Hong Kong’s borders remain closed. The tourism sector, which employs about a quarter of a million local residents, almost completely ceased its activities – and found itself on the verge of bankruptcy. In this regard, numerous tourist buses have become unclaimed, which local businessmen sent to makeshift parking lots until better times.

During the coronavirus pandemic, many rental companies that have lost their customers are forced to look for sites to place their cars. So, in early April, on the Hawaiian island of Maui, a giant “cemetery” of 18 thousand cars was placed in a reed field.
