#117 Chinese young people obsessed with ‘Revenge Travel’ 年轻人爱上“特种兵式旅游”?

大家好!欢迎回来MaoMi Chinese!

很多人以为中国人已经不喜欢花钱了,但是刚刚过去的五一劳动节假期让所有人都刮目相看。刮目相看是一个成语,意思是以前小看了一个人或者一个东西,但是现在的看法不一样了。今年的五一假期,中国到处都是人山人海,人们都出来旅游和消费。以前,人们觉得中国的经济不太景气了,人们也不喜欢消费了,但是今年的五一假期让人刮目相看。一些年轻人还爱上了“特种兵式旅游”,他们一天能去很多个景点,他们就像特种兵一样,一点儿都不累。今天,我们就来聊一聊“特种兵式旅游”吧!

有些人喜欢慢慢地旅游,在一个地方住很多天,体验当地的风土人情。也有一些人喜欢在很短的时间里去很多个地方旅游,就像打卡一样。旅游打卡,意思是去一个地方,拍一些照片,在社交媒体上发布,证明我们来过了。这种短时间去很多个地方打卡的旅游,就叫“特种兵式旅游”。特种兵是一种士兵,他们可以做特别难的任务,他们的身体也特别好。喜欢“特种兵式旅游”的年轻人们,他们就像特种兵一样,可以挑战极限,不管多累,他们都可以坚持。

为什么最近“特种兵式旅游”会走红呢?我看了很多中国网友的分享,认为大概有这些原因:第一个原因,喜欢特种兵式旅游的人几乎都是年轻人,尤其是大学生。他们很年轻,体力也很好,所以旅游的时候不怕累。有一个大学生说:“我们现在这个年龄,20多岁,旅游不觉得累,只要能和朋友一起去看风景,打卡合照。”第二个原因,特种兵式旅游更省钱。有些人说这样的旅游叫快节奏的“穷游”,因为这些年轻人经常坐夜晚的火车,早上到一个新的地方,这样可以节省一个晚上的酒店钱。也因为大学生通常没有很多钱,短时间里去更多地方,让他们觉得他们的旅游很值得。第三个原因,我觉得和三年的新冠疫情有关系。在过去的三年,很多大学都被封锁了很久,大学生哪儿都去不了,只能在学校里。现在,中国开放了,他们终于可以去很多地方旅游了。一个大学生网友说:“再不疯狂我们就老了!现在不疯狂,以后工作了,就没有时间疯狂了! ”大学的时间可能是他们最自由的时间,所以他们也很想在工作之前,弥补以前不能去旅游的时间。

虽然我更喜欢慢节奏的旅游,也就是深度游,但我觉得这种“特种兵式旅游”也很有趣,让我想起了我在大学的时间,也喜欢和朋友做很多疯狂的事情。一个大学生网友说:“20岁和30岁、40岁看到的风景是不一样的。20多岁,更想在这种集体氛围下去感受这个世界。可能30岁、40岁,大家更想自己认真地、静静地感受风景。”我很赞同,我也觉得我们应该鼓励年轻人多做一些疯狂的事情!

你更喜欢“特种兵式旅游”,还是慢节奏的旅游呢?欢迎给我们留言评论!

Hello everyone! Welcome back to MaoMi Chinese!

Many people thought that Chinese people don’t like to spend money anymore, but the just past Labor Day holiday made everyone sit up and take notice. “Sit up and take notice” is an idiom that means that someone previously underestimated a person or thing, but now has a different opinion. This year’s Labor Day holiday was filled with people everywhere in China, all out traveling and spending. In the past, people thought that China’s economy wasn’t doing well, and people didn’t like to spend money. However, this year’s Labor Day holiday made people sit up and take notice. Some young people have even fallen in love with “revenge travel,” where they can visit many tourist attractions in a single day without feeling tired, just like special forces soldiers. Today, let’s talk about “revenge travel”!

Some people like to travel slowly, staying in one place for many days to experience local culture. Some people like to travel to many places in a short time, like ticking off items on a checklist. This type of short-term travel, where people visit many places in a short period of time, is called “revenge travel.” Special forces soldiers are a type of soldier who can undertake extremely difficult missions, and they have excellent physical strength. Young people who enjoy “revenge travel” are like special forces soldiers, challenging their limits, and no matter how tired they are, they can persevere.

Why has “revenge travel” become so popular recently? I have read many posts from Chinese netizens, and they believe that there are several reasons. Firstly, almost all of the people who like “revenge travel” are young people, especially college students. They are young and have good physical strength, so they are not afraid of getting tired while traveling. One college student said, “At our age, in our twenties, we don’t feel tired when traveling. We just want to see the scenery, take pictures, and have fun with friends.” Secondly, “revenge travel” is more cost-effective. Some people call this type of travel a fast-paced “poor travel” because these young people often take overnight trains, arriving at a new place in the morning, saving one night’s hotel fee. Also, because college students usually don’t have a lot of money, visiting more places in a short period of time makes them feel that their travel is worth it. Thirdly, I think it is related to the three-year COVID-19 pandemic. In the past three years, many universities have been closed for a long time, and college students couldn’t go anywhere, so they could only stay on campus. Now that China has reopened, they can finally travel to many places. One college student said, “If we don’t go crazy now, we’ll get old! We won’t have time to go crazy after we start working!” University may be the most free time they have, so they want to make up for the time they couldn’t travel before they start working.

Although I prefer slow-paced travel, which is also known as deep travel, I think this “special forces-style tourism” is interesting too. It reminds me of my time in college when I also enjoyed doing crazy things with my friends. A college student online friend said, “The scenery seen at 20, 30, and 40 years old is different. In their 20s, people want to experience the world in this collective atmosphere. Maybe at 30 or 40, people want to quietly experience the scenery on their own.” I agree with this and think we should encourage young people to do more crazy things!

Do you prefer “special forces-style tourism” or slow-paced travel? Please feel free to leave a comment!

  1. We also need “Just do it” travel, so many people forget to travel, too busy with non important things – Travel is the most important thing – Learn about yourself and other cultures
