Hong Kong in the news: “Smart deals” for clients, trip contest for agents

TORONTO — The Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB) and Hong Kong’s Tourism Commission have teamed up to offer a wide range of “smart deals” to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR).

Running under the heading “Celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the Establishment of the HKSAR with Smart Deals”, over 40 deals and special offers will be available to visitors from now until Sept. 30, 2017 from a variety of local attractions and trade partners.

These deals include discounts for attractions, transportation, sightseeing tours, dining and shopping, all of which have been compiled into a coupon booklet. To mark the 20th anniversary, the number ‘20’ features often: for example, 20% off purchases or HK$20 attraction tickets for visitors born in a particular month.

The HKTB has published over 800,000 booklets, available at HKTB Visitor Centres, local hotels and travel agencies.

“The HKTB appreciates the government’s continued support and all the participating attractions and trade partners for their generous offerings to enrich visitors’ in-town experience, all of which will encourage arrivals and draw attention to the attractions and experiences that give Hong Kong its unique appeal,” said Dr. Peter Lam, Chairman of the HKTB.
