just over 36 million, a 21.8% increase over the previous year. The numbers included approximately
22.5 million Chinese people arrived from the mainland, 8.2 million short-haul, excluding Mainland,
arrivals, and 4.8 million long-haul arrivals. In July 2011 more than 3.8 million visitors arrived

Smoking Ban in Hotels in Hong Kong


Smoking in public in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region has been banned from 2007 under
the revised Public Health Ordinance, first enacted in 1982. The later amendment enlarged the smoking
ban to include indoor work places, public places, including restaurants, public toilet, beaches and parks.

Hotel rooms are, in many countries, exempted from the smoking restriction law. On this hotel research,
it was found the smoking-room ratio to the total guest rooms was not over than that of expected.
Surprisingly, in Macau, the smoking-room ratio was very high in some hotels. Hotel Lisbona's smoking
-room was 91.7% of the total rooms. Hotel Grand Lisbona Macau also showed a high smoking-room
ratio of 87.1%.

In Hong Kong, the smoking-room ratio is not over the 30%, which appears to be the highest ratio set
in the smoke-free law of the world. It was pleased to know that two hotels, both The Upper House
and The Mira, are smokefree. I hope almost all hotels would change their policy to abolish a smoking
room in a hotel, such as in most of Canada and the United States.

A partial smoking bans in hotels do not protect guests from
dangers of tobacco.


Hotels, that have the smoking and non-smoking rooms, do not adequately protect people
from the dangers of tobacco. That is the conclusion of a new San Diego State University
study published in the Journal Tobacco Control.

Researchers took air quality readings and tested surfaces for evidence of tobacco-smoke
in a random sample of San Diego hotel rooms. Ten hotels had complete smoking bans
while 30 others had some dedicated non-smoking rooms. Compared with hotels that
prohibit smoking, hotels with only partial bans had higher surface and air nicotine levels.

That was true even in the non-smoking rooms in hotels with a partial ban. Only five
U.S. states , Indiana, Michigan, North Dakota, Vermond and Wisconsin, require all motel
and hotel rooms to be smoke free. Four cities in California, including Santa Monica, have
such a law. Researchers say guests who want to avoid tobacco exposure should stay only
in smoke-free hotels.

香港では1982年の段階より受動喫煙防止法が公布され、市民の健康を守って来ている。規制
範囲は年々拡大され、今ではレストラン、商社商店、銀行、官庁など公共的施設が全面禁煙と
なっている。2011年1月から条例を施行したマカオに比べ非常に速い時点から受動喫煙防止に
取り組んだその姿勢は、最近の長寿世界一位の座を勝ち取った一因ともなったと考えられる。

ホテル喫煙客室の割合は30%以下に抑えられ、多くは20%以下となっている。二つのホテルでは
喫煙客室を廃止して完全なスモークフリーとなっている。北米などで見られる禁煙化を先取りして
いると思える。こうした状況を見るにつけ、飲食店などの「分煙体制」を目標とし、全面禁煙に
対しては何もプランを持ち合わせていない日本の政治状況、国民意識を考えると、恥ずかしいと
しか言いようがない。
