"The biggest obstacle for my family to travel with the baby is unclear toys, milk powder bottles, diapers, wet wipes, sweat towels... Every time I go out, I need to bring several bags, and I'm tired and sweaty before I go far. And there are often omissions.” At Window of the World, when the reporter met Ms. Qin, who was taking her family on a trip, she had just ordered an Internet celebrity milk tea set meal for the whole family through the Meituan drone, and only waited for 5 minutes. In about a minute, the drone will deliver the milk tea to your hand.
What surprised her even more was that, in addition to Internet celebrity restaurants, drones can also be used to purchase maternal and child products in the scenic area. "In this way, even if you forget to bring wet wipes and milk powder, you can order takeaway to deliver it, which will be much more convenient."
The reporter learned on the spot that Naixue’s tea store, which is responsible for making milk tea, is about 20 minutes’ walk away from the landing point of the drone, and the delivery service in the past could not reach the inside of the scenic spot. Even if tourists want to order takeaway, they have to walk for more than 10 minutes Picking up the goods at the entrance of the scenic spot is fast and convenient, which has become the biggest selling point of drone delivery in the scenic spot.
"In fact, we and Window of the World had landed a temporary route here in a flash mob last October. This cooperation is an upgrade on the basis of the previous cooperation. Not only is the delivery time faster, but the product selection is better. Consumers who visit Window of the World in the future can enjoy the drone delivery service.” According to the person in charge of Meituan’s drones, the first batch of merchants connected to the new route includes Nayuki’s Well-known brands such as Tea, Genki Sushi, and BABYCARE enable consumers to not only buy various gourmet drinks in the scenic area, but also "call" the drone to deliver them when they forget to bring necessities such as wet wipes and sweat wipes. to hand, and the wait time is only a few minutes.
"The addition of the supply of maternal and child products this time is mainly because we have seen an increasingly strong demand in the market." The above-mentioned person in charge revealed to reporters that with the improvement of take-out services in recent years, people's dependence on this service has increased. With each passing day, in addition to being essential at home, many consumers will buy necessities such as maternal and child products, toiletries, mobile phone data cables, etc. through takeout near hotels, scenic spots and other destinations, even when they are away from home. The takeaway staff ran errands to keep warm and change clothes for them.

Commercial upgrading promotes the integration of leisure vacations and local life
The rise of takeaway in scenic spots has freed travel consumption from "carrying ahead". According to data from Meituan, the number of takeaway orders sent to campsites in scenic spots during the National Day holiday last year increased by more than double digits year-on-year; Rods, etc. became the highest-selling commodity.
In addition, new parents, represented by the "post-90s", are very interested in "empty box travel", and more than 30% of mother and baby takeaway orders such as wet wipes, milk powder, and sweat towels will be sent to outdoor scenes such as scenic spots .
Wu Ruoshan, a special researcher at the Tourism Research Center of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, said a few days ago that with the upgrading of various commercial formats, people's travel flexibility and desire to explore are becoming stronger and stronger, and leisure vacations and local life needs are moving towards integration.
In the opinion of experts, in the long run, it will gradually become a new trend of travel consumption for consumers to tap the rich supply of local platforms to obtain a more diversified life experience, and the new experience will also effectively help accelerate the growth of the tourism industry.
