戴宏錦:非大馬人熱門旅遊區 緬中衝突不影響旅行團

  (吉隆坡15日訊)馬來西亞華人旅遊業公會總秘書戴宏錦說,大馬遊客向來很少到緬甸北部旅遊,即使有也是到緬甸仰光市中心觀光,因此這波的中緬衝突,並沒有對本地旅行社帶來影響。 自今年2月9日開始,緬甸政府軍與少數民族“果敢民族民主同盟軍”武裝,在果敢地區發生十多次戰鬥。 上週五,緬甸北方的“果敢同盟軍”與中國再次爆發衝突,緬甸軍機進入中國境內投擲炸彈,導致5死8傷。 戴宏錦接受《中國報》訪問時說,由于緬甸旅費不便宜,也不是本地人的熱門旅遊區,向來很少本地人到當地旅遊。因此,緬甸北方與中國的衝突事件,並沒影響本地旅行團行程。 緬甸軍機週五向中方境內投彈后,中國東方航空突然宣佈,受緬甸航路影響,已取消6個往返緬甸航班,建議旅客通過原購票渠道辦理免費退票、改期、簽轉手續。  HD
