Tourist Destruction Disturbs Residents

文字-A A +A

As a result of last year’s cat exhibition, and the steady stream of related information circulated on the Internet, recently, tourist numbers have risen to unprecedented levels. According to Houdong station master daily tourist numbers have risen to around 500, with over 1000 on weekdays and holidays. Unfortunately, a small number of tourists have caused a great deal of disturbance to the residents of Guang Fu Village. Local residents have indicated that the two families situated at the very south end of town have suffered continual disturbance. One tourist, who in spite of clear restrictions, emptied a large bag of cat food onto the ground. The subsequent encircling of the area to restrict feeding of cats met similar unacceptable behavior with the barrier being destroyed. 

The situation has gone as far as young lovers climbing onto the roof of resident’s homes to take pictures and rushing into local villager’s homes. Locals are not surprisingly fed up with these and similar kinds of unacceptable behavior. From a purely practical viewpoint, streets full of cat food turn into a dangerous slippery hell in rainy weather, not to mention the fact that it is the perfect breading ground for mosquitoes and other insects. Some tourists have blatantly disregarded locals’ instructions or simply paid no attention. Locals have no option but to silently accept the nonchalant manner of tourists.  While still interested in pursuing tourist development in the area, locals are looking to the relevant government department to come up with a plan to solve the problems of tourist numbers and the related disturbances.

【侯硐專題】遊客增加搞破壞 居民不堪其擾 (公民記者 點點  報導)
 
近日遊客不斷增加的貓村─侯硐,自去年開始舉辦貓展後,隨著網路不斷流傳,遊客數量一路攀升,據侯硐站長估計,平日遊客數量大約在五百人次左右,假日則可高達一千人次,可說是差了一倍之多!但少數遊客的行為卻讓光復里的居民相當困擾。當地居民表示,在光復里南側,位在盡頭的的兩家住戶,不斷遭受干擾,有遊客不顧居民制止直接把一大包的貓飼料直接灑在地上,居民甚至圍起封鎖線,遊客照樣破壞不誤。有年輕情侶還跑到居民家裡的屋頂上拍照,亂闖進別人家裡面,這些情況,他們實在很無奈。飼料照樣灑得滿地,若遇到下雨天,地板會變得濕濕泥泥的,走在路上容易滑倒,也會孳生蚊蟲。有的遊客被勸導甚至會故意唱反調,對設置在一旁的告示牌也不理不睬,居民也只能默默接受這些情況。在侯硐追求觀光發展時,也請政府及有關單位想想,如此大量遊客進入參觀,是否應有更完善的規劃?
