The pandemic has hit the tourism industry hard: What are tour guides doing now?

文字-A A +A

On walking into Taoyuan International Airport, one is met with empty lobbies and closed check-in counters. With travel agencies banned from taking tour groups, the pandemic has hit the tourism industry hard. Tour guides instantly lost their jobs and suddenly had to face the reality of zero income. Many people in the industry have taken the opportunity to attend further education classes to enrich their studies and better themselves. In contrast, others have found new jobs to survive the pandemic.

 

Some tour guides have found new full-time or part-time jobs in different fields, while others have combined their own interests and experience in leading tour groups to become YouTubers, shooting song covers, introducing tourist attractions, etc. The sudden onslaught of COVID-19 has disrupted many people's lives, but it has also highlighted the stories of many people developing creativity under adversity to find a way forward.

疫情衝擊旅遊業 領隊現在都在做什麼?

空蕩蕩的大廳,暫停服務的櫃檯,這裡是桃園國際機場。疫情衝擊旅遊業,旅行社禁止出團,以往靠帶團維生的領隊導遊瞬間沒了工作,收入也通通歸零。有不少人趁著這時候上課進修、充實自我,也有不少人力拚轉職,在這波疫情之下求生存。

 

而除了轉職、兼職以外,更有領隊結合了自己的興趣與過去帶團的經驗,當起了YouTuber,拍攝歌曲翻唱、旅遊景點介紹等影片。一場突然的疫情打亂了許多人原本的生活,但也讓我們看見許多小人物在逆境之下努力生存、發揮創意的故事。
