Traffic will not change. It is a problem now and it will continue to be even after the Olympics. An estimated 500,000 visitors will be traveling to China for the games and most will come to Beijing. The two ways to alleviate traffic are to encourage more use of mass transit, if possible, and limit the number of autos registered to local citizens allowed on the road, which is unfortunate if you own a car in Beijing. |
Although service has improved in Beijing, the standard that visitors will expect is going to be high. The costs of traveling to China for the Olympics including the costs of the over-priced hotels, local transportation, event tickets, meals, etc. is going to be expensive. Most people who are coming are going to stay for longer than a few days, I suspect an average stay of at least 5 days. People who are able to spend that kind of money to travel are more likely to have a higher expectation than someone who goes to the beach for a weekend. High investment = high expectation.
The other mannerisms of spitting, not waiting in line, littering, etc. are still very apparent and can be seen everyday. With or without the Olympics taking place in China, these mannerisms need to be remedied. Changing these habits will create ripples that can morph into waves of positive change.
Good luck Beijing.
