The chairman of Lantau Development Alliance said Lantau Island is reaching its bottleneck in providing sufficient accommodation capacity and dredging tourists.

Even though the Hong Kong is geographical close to Lantau Island, with only three hotels, its capacity failed to reach the industry growth.

Allen Han, who is also Chief Executive Officer of Asia World-Expo Management Limited said, with the benefits of Individual Visit Scheme, Hong Kong has been favorable for holding events in attracting mainland audience.

American SAT for example, which is held in Asia World-Expo every three months, attracts more than a hundred thousand candidates, mainly Mainlanders, while Lantau Island can only provides a maximum of 3,000 rooms.

Tourists have no alternatives but living in large hotels, causing junction in Canton Road.

"It is essential for the government to endorse proper positioning for hotels," said Han, " there is a demand for three and four stars hotels in easing the huge population of mainland tourists".

Other than Asia World-Expo Convention and Exhibition, Lautau Island has many touristy spots such as Disneyland and Ngong Ping 360, attracting an average of 10 million travelers per year.

The economic benefits brought failed to repay the population of 2.2 million people in Tung Chung, due to the inadequate planning in transportation back in the days.

Han explained that although all the attractions are stationed on the same island, there are just points, with no linkage to each other.
