Replying to [Stone]:"Thank you for your suggestion. It's a good idea but I am afraid that it needs time if we would do the same thing."
What is the use of the "GOOD IDEA" if this is not looked into & merely a suggestion, feed back that will go UNHEARD OR UNDONE?? This is not a new issue but one M'SIA & S'PORE came up with a solution years ago because of combined effort & reasonable rates for both accross the border & also internationally for CONTINOUS SALES TO BE HAD. In doing so , despite the downtrend of the countries economy, the sales of such combined agreement, made it possible for families, business & tourist to still flow into the country & still enjoy the "bad days" sales.
TOURISM CHINA should not be too complacent in this matter & sector because affordability of HOTELS STAY IS THE MOST VITAL FOR CONTINOUS FLOW OF TOURISM, TRADE FAIRS, CONVENTIONS etc,,etc,,
Frankly, how do you expect countries with lower income per capita countries to pay US$100/- PER NIGHT?? If americans patronise country in Asia, then it is their gain because in the US, most hotels are considered Asia's middle class hotels & accomodation. The hotels , excluding the ones in New York top of the range type is really not of the standard Asia offers to just about everyone , in appearance, in cost of beautification, CLASS SERVICE (especially from Thailand , Indonesia, M'sia, S'pore , India, to name a few.
"Anyway, nowadays, we have one promotion that you could have the chance to gain the hotel fee reimbursement. The aim of Alibaba.com is to bring you more business opportunities"
For this promotion you are talkign about. how many people have excess to this site to know of such "discounts" so to speak??? Alibaba, is still relatively unheard of to lots I have asked & I have been informing some business people , from around the globe contacts I have , if not it is still unknown. HOW MANY PERCENT DO YOU THINK HAVE HEARD OF & HAVE EXCESS TO THIS SITE IF IT IS NOT ADVERTISE ON A WIDE SCALE AS "YAHOO, GOOGLE ,,,TO NAME???
i HOPE ALIBABA WILL GROW IN LEAPS & BOUNDS TO PROVIDE THE SERVICE ALL OF US BUSINESS PEOPEL ARE LOOKING FOR SO THAT WE MAY BE ABLE TO TRAVEL TO MORE FAIRS HOSTED IN CHINA ON THE WHOLE.
