Unit 6 Marine Neotourism
Text A The “New” Variant in Coastal Tourism: Residential Tourism

Text B The Proceed of Cruise

Blue ocean,covering about 71% of the earth’s surface, is the largest area of natural landscape. Since ancient time, people have always used the ocean to relieve stress and seek happiness. In the modern era, the gradual improvement of coastal tourism has brought about multiple development like residential and cruise tourism to meet the demands of modern urban residents.

Background information
1. Residential Tourism The ―residential tourism‖ is commonly used and refers to a specific type of tourist: he or she who chooses non-hotel accommodations for their stays. These accommodations usually involve an owned, rented, or lent property, or a timeshare(分时享用度假权). This type of tourist has not been sufficiently examined to determine the complexity of the activities that define this important segment of the tourist industry.

2. Baby Boomer
A baby boomer is a person who was born during the demographic Post-World War II baby boom between the years 1946 and 1964, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. The term "baby boomer" is sometimes used in a cultural context. Therefore, it is impossible to achieve broad consensus of a precise definition, even within a given territory. Different groups, organizations, individuals, and scholars may have widely varying opinions on what constitutes a baby boomer, both technically and culturally. Ascribing universal attributes to a broad generation is difficult, and some observers believe that it is inherently impossible. Nonetheless, many people have attempted to determine the broad cultural similarities and historical impact of the generation, and thus the term has gained widespread popular usage.

Baby boomers are associated with a rejection or redefinition of traditional values; however, many commentators have disputed the extent of that rejection, noting the widespread continuity of values with older and younger generations. In Europe and North America boomers are widely associated with privilege, as many grew up in a time of widespread government subsidies in post-war housing and education, and increasing affluence.

As a group, they were the wealthiest, most active, and most physically fit generation to that time, and amongst the first to grow up genuinely expecting the world to improve with time. They were also the generation that received peak levels of income, therefore they could reap the benefits of abundant levels of food, apparel, retirement programs, and sometimes even "midlife crisis" products.

The ”New” Variant in Coastal Tourism: Residential Tourism 海洋旅游“新”形式:居 家旅游

近年来,一种新的 1. The hottest trend in coastal 海洋旅游方式炙手可热, development is to be all它是一种配套设施齐全 inclusive ―villages‖ for resort 的乡村度假胜地,配有 complexes with their own spas, 自己的温泉、小码头、 marinas, golf courses, shopping 高尔夫球场、购物设施 facilities, and vacation homes. 和旅馆。“将旅馆和公 ―There’s a move towards 寓结合起来是一种趋势, combining hotels and condos 因为二手房市场十分火 because the second home market 爆,”保罗〃文塞说, is so strong,‖ says Paul Wanzer, 他是供职于华盛顿州西 雅图市米森公司的一位 an architect with Mithun in Seattle, Washington. Developers say that 建筑设计师。开发商们 认为旅游胜地和居家旅 by combining a resort with vacation homes, it will increase 馆的结合可以提升两者 the value of both and each helps 的价值并得以在经济上 互相支撑。 to finance the other.

The amenities of the resort increase the value of the homes, and building the homes first and selling them as they are completed help to finance the resort construction costs. Interviews with a range of developers, architects and academics reveal the following patterns and decision making processes in terms of coastal resort development.

度假地的配套设施 使得房产得以增值, 出售房产所得也有 助于抵消度假地的 建筑成本。受访的 几位开发商、建筑 师和大学教师向我 们介绍了海洋度假 地开发的决策过程 和几种常见方式。

2. There are, however, some questions about just how new this model is. Developer Butterfield describes the current ―residential tourism‖ resorts linked to vacation homes as ―a throw-back model‖ quite similar to earlier, allinclusive resorts like the Fontainebleau Hotel. ―We’re still building holiday towns, resort towns so that people can go on vacation to a town that is like theirs, only nicer.‖

2. 但是这种新的模式 也有它自己的问题。 开发商布特菲尔德将 当前配有度假旅馆的 “居家旅游”看成是 一种“传统的发展模 式”,它与之前的配 套设施齐全的“枫丹 白露旅馆”十分类似。 “

一些度假村仍在兴 建之中,目的是让游 客们在这里找到家的 感觉。”

Interestingly, the Miami Beach Fontainebleau, which Butterfield and others see as the original all-inclusive coastal resort, is currently undergoing a make-over: Many old hotels were closed in 2006 and its furnishings are currently available for sale. The hotel together with newly built condominiums is being remodeled and expanded, and will be reopened in 2008.

有趣的是,布特菲尔 德还有其他几位开发 商将迈阿密海滩旅馆 看作是最早的雏形, 但现在也在发生着变 化:2006年许多老式 旅馆倒闭,家具也正 在出售。旧旅馆还有 新建的公寓得以重新 设计,经营规模也得 以拓展,将在2008年 重新开张。

3. Typically, the components of these resort/residential developments are: 4. Vacation homes: These can range from high-rising apartment condos to town houses and individual homes within gated communities. In the Americas, it is driven by the baby boomers. In Asia, it is driven by the growing urbanization and the desire of the upper middle class in very crowded urban centers in Korea, Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Malaysia, who are seeking the second homes equipped with the sun-and-sea settings.

3. 一般来看,居家旅游包括 下面几个构成部分: 4. 居家旅馆:它不仅包括楼 层较多的公寓楼也包括城镇 房和位于社区内部的独宅。 在美洲,居家旅游的发展受 到生于二战后的一代人的追 捧。而在亚洲,迅速推进的 城市化和上层中产阶级则成 为其发展的助推力,尤其是 在一些人口众多的城市中, 像香港以及韩国、日本、新 加坡和马来西亚的几个大城 市,这些现代都市人正找寻 “抬头有阳光,面前有大海” 的第二家园。

Typically because the buyers only live there for a few weeks a year, these homes often go into a pool of rentals managed by the resort.

因为游客们只做短 暂停留,因此这些 旅馆大多时候还是 作为租赁之用。

5. Spas: A spa is increasingly a staple of not only large resorts but even boutique ecolodges and city hotels, and its ―wellness‖ is in and with the baby boomers’ obsession with health, exercise, stress reduction, yoga, organics, and fine wines. In Asia and the Americas, there is a ―big trend‖ towards spa development with some hotel chains branding their spas. In the Americas, Revolution Resorts’ spas are called ―Mirabal‖, while in Asia Shangri-La hotels have branded their spas as ―Chi‖.

温泉:温泉不仅日益成为 大的旅游度假胜地的组成 部分,而且走入了多功能 的生态旅馆和城市旅馆之 中,它在众人眼中的“合 时宜”源于“二战后”对 健康、健身、减压、瑜伽、 机体以及名酒的强烈关注。 而在亚洲和美洲,一些连 锁旅馆也正“趁势”推出 自己的温泉品牌,美洲的 一些“革

命圣地”将自己 的温泉命名为“Mirabal”, 而亚洲的香格里拉则是 “Chi”。

6. Golf courses: Golf courses remain an important component of resort development, despite the reality that many coastal areas are unsuited for this sport which was created in Scotland. Golf is an important market in Southeast Asia where the Japanese and South Koreans were earlier ―adaptors‖ of golf and continued to use it for business. The emerging Chinese international business set is similarly inclined, moreover there’s a network of golf clubs in Malaysia, Singapore, and Indonesia that cater to this market.

高尔夫球场:高尔夫球场 是度假胜地的重要组成部分, 尽管这种来自苏格兰的体育 运动并不见得适合所有的沿 海地区。在东南亚高尔夫运 动蕴含着极大的商机,日本 和韩国是最早将其投入到商 业运作中的两个国家。中国 国际商业的崛起也使得中国 逐渐成为该领域的重要一员, 不仅如此,在马来西亚、新 加坡和印尼一个高尔夫俱乐 部网正在形成,以迎合市场 需求。

Even though in Costa Rica’s Guanacaste area along the Pacific coast there are already 7 golf courses and another 15 or more in planning, tourism institute statistics shows that only 3% of tourists come to Costa Rica to play golf. The rationale, according to INCAE economist Lawrence Pratt, is the real estate speculation. Developers estimate that vacation homes built around a golf course sell for 20% more.

即使是在哥斯达黎加的瓜 那卡斯特省的环太平洋地 区也出现了7个高尔夫球 场,并且还有15或者更多 的球场正在计划修建之中, 但是根据旅游部门的统计 数据显示只有3%的到哥斯 达黎加的游客愿意去打高 尔夫。其中的缘由,据中 美洲商学院经济学家劳伦 斯〃普拉特来看,这应当 是房地产投机所致。据开 发商们估计高尔夫球场附 近的度假房真正能出售的 只有20%多一点。

7. While few of the tourists and even 如果只有少数游客和当地 fewer locals use these golf courses, 居民能够使用高尔夫球场 the impact of development and 的话,那么球场之后的发 yearly maintenance of golf courses 展和每年的维护费用将是 remain severe. An average 18-hole 一个大问题。平均来看, golf course requires 100 acres of 一座18洞的高尔夫球场需 land conversion while using over 要占用100英亩的土地,每 130 million gallons of water per year. The equivalent amount of water is 年需要1.3亿加仑的水。而 相同数量的水却可以满足 quite adequate for 800 families of 3,000 to 7,000 persons per year in 美国或哥斯达黎加800个家 the United States or a community in 庭约3千到7千人的一年的 Costa Rica. The pesticide usage on 消费,而杀虫剂的使用也 golf courses has severe effects on 给当地的地下水和野生动 local ground water and wildlife as the

物造成了严重的影响,因 pesticides can move beyond the golf 为杀虫剂的危害不仅局限 course. 于高尔夫球场。

The average golf course pesticide usage is much more intensive than normal agrarian usages. Agricultural pesticide use averages less than a pound per acre per year while golf courses average nine pounds per acre per year amounting to a total of 1,500 pounds per course per year. In tropical areas, where most of these new upcoming resorts will be located, pesticide usage escalates. Some tropical courses require 3,307 pounds of chemical fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides per course per year.

一般来看,一座高尔夫球 场杀虫剂的危害要比一般 农田的要严重许多,农田 每年每英亩杀虫剂平均使 用量还不到1磅,但是高 尔夫球场却高达9磅,一 年下来每个球场就一共是 1500磅。而在带有高尔夫 球场的度假胜地非常集中 的热带地区,杀虫剂的使 用也与日俱增。在有些热 带地区的球场,每个每年 需要3307磅的各类化学肥 料、杀虫剂和除草剂。

8. Marinas: While clear water activities are an important part of coastal tourism, the scale of marina development, like that of golf courses, is outstripping demand. In Mexico, FONATUR’s most ambitious marina scheme, Escalera Nautica proposed building 27 marinas in the small towns along both coasts of the Baja California for California vacationers who would arrive in their pleasure boats.

小码头:净水游玩也是 海洋旅游一项重要组成 部分,就像高尔夫球场 一样,小码头的发展也 有供大于求的趋势。在 墨西哥,旅游者宣传国 家基金会最雄心勃勃的 小码头建设规划—“艾 斯卡莱拉〃诺提克”计 划在加利福尼亚半岛沿 岸的小城镇将会兴建27 座小码头,为乘船来此 地度假的加州人提供娱 乐。

A critical study of Escalera Nautica revealed the scheme was far from realistic. The 2003 study, financed by the Packard Foundation, showed clearly that FONATUR had exaggerated the demand for marina spaces in Baja California and the Sea of Cortez. While the study forecasted that by the year 2014, ten thousand vessels may enter the region, FONATUR had projected the arrival of 61,000 private boats.

但是一项针对该计划的 所做的研究发现该计划 并不现实。2003年由帕 克德基金会资助的该项 研究清楚地表明旅游者 宣传国家基金会夸大了 在加利福尼亚半岛和科 尔特斯海沿岸地区对小 码头的需求。该研究还 预测到2014年,一万艘 船只会进入该地区,但 是旅游者宣传国家基金 会的预测却是61000艘。

The study also concluded that only 该研究最后说到2014年 5,500 berths would be needed by 只需要5500个泊位,而 2014, and not the 26,500 estimated不是基金会所估算的 26500个。该研究和公 by FONATUR. This study and 众的反对也迫使基金会 public opposition fo

In Costa Rica, 21 new marinas have been proposed, mainly along the Pacific coast and each with a pricetag of between $10 and $40 million. Again, one of the rationales appears to real estate speculation: bumping up the price of vacation homes and of resort stays because of their proximity to a marina.

在哥斯达黎加,21座 小码头的建设已提上 日程,主要位于太平 洋沿岸,每一个造价 都在一千到四千万美 元之间。背后还是房 地产投机在起作用, 因为地处小码头附近 的度假房价格一路高 涨。

While promoters of marinas argue that they provide needed services and help to regulate pleasure boats, opponents argue that marinas attract a less desirable international clientele and serve as a gateway for drugs, prostitution, and other illegal and anti-social activities.

那些支持小码头建设 的人声称他们会提供 急需的服务和规范的 游艇运作。而反对者 则认为小码头的兴建 不仅没有吸引世界各 地游客的注意,反而 为贩毒、嫖娼还有其 他非法和反社会活动 大开方便之门。

9.However, based on the analyses of the decision-making and implementation of the coastal tourism, a number of challenges emerge that need to be addressed if development is to be carried out sustainably. In short, these can be summarized as follows: land ownership and displacement of locals; water in terms of quality, quantity, consistency, and competition with other economic activities, including towns, agriculture, and protected areas; environmental destruction; master plans and life cycles and the global warming. (1145words)

但是,根据上面对海洋 旅游的决策过程和执行 的分析,有些发展中面 临的挑战需要指出,否 则海洋旅游就无法持续 发展下去。简单来说, 这些挑战主要有:土地 所有权和搬迁安臵;水 质和水量以及水的粘稠 度,与其他地方的经济 活动,比如城镇、农业 和保护区之间的竞争; 还有环境破坏;中心规 划,生态循环和环境变 暖。

B. Translate the following paragraph into English.

度假旅游(vacation tour) Vacation tour aims at 是利用假日外出以度假休 entertaining oneself in the and relaxes 闲为主要目的和内容,进 holiday excursion, and mentally oneself physically 行令精神和身体放松的康 through some keeping-fit 体休闲活动。在欧美等发 activities.

Therefore, 康体)为主要目的,具有 vacation tour centers on going 明确的目的地的旅游活动。on holiday and has definite tour
destinations.

作为海洋旅游发展的新形 式,近年来逐渐兴起的 “居家旅游”正日益受到 大众的追捧。一般来看, “居家旅游”包含四个主 要因素:度假别墅、温泉 浴场、高尔夫球场和小型 码头。所谓度假别墅既可 以指楼层较高的公寓,也 可以指乡间独宅。其广泛 流行有着深刻的社会背景, 比如在东南亚各国,迅速 的城市化进程以及城市中 产阶级的兴起最终成就了 度假别墅的飞速发展。

As a new developmental form, the ―residential tourism‖ rising in recent years has become more and more popular. In general, it contains four ingredients: vacation homes, spas, golf courses and marinas. The vacation homes refer to the high-rising apartment condos and town houses. Its wide popularity has been taking deep root in the society. In southeastern Asia, the rapid urbanization and the rising of the middle class attributed to its fast development.

与度假别墅的兴起类似, Similar to the vacation homes, the 温泉浴场的广受欢迎则与 spa’s wide popularity has close 现代都市人特殊的生活方 connection with modern urban 式密切关联。城市生

为了迎合“居家旅游” 市场的需要,兴建小型 码头一度成为许多政府 的当务之急,但是它引 起的争议丝毫不比高尔 夫球场的少。许多反对 者认为许多小型码头的 开放不仅没有达到预期 效果,反而为许多非法 活动提供了便利。

In order to cater to the demands in the ―residential tourism‖ market, establishing the marinas has been the urgent business for the local government in many areas, however, the controversies caused by marinas seem not less than that of golf courses. Many opponents believe that not only do the open of many marinas fail to meet the expectations, but facilitate some illegal activities.

Doing Research
Work in groups and find information on any source available about the topic related to the ―residential tourism‖. Use a PPT to present it briefly to the class.

Writing
Apart from the typical components stated by author in the passage, what are the other components included in the development of the residential tourism in order to attract the young people who were born in the 1980s and the 1990s and have been regarded as the main body of future tourism activity.

Language Points

amenities: n. the facilities which can make somebody feel comfortable and convenient
e.g. Since then, however, land has become more valuable, not just for timber but for providing "environmental services" such as flood control, climate change measures and amenity. 但是从那时起,林地变得越来越有价值,不仅是因为伐木 业,而且因为它所提
