HK Tourism Board rolls out new 80,000-quota Local Tours and Staycation Delights program

HK Tourism Board rolls out new 80,000-quota Local Tours and Staycation Delights program

The Hong Kong Tourism Board will be introducing a new “Hong Kong Summer Treats” campaign, debuting a quota of 80,000 for Spend-to-Redeem “Local Tours” and “Staycation Delights,” providing the public with guided local tours and hotel staycation discounts.

From today, citizens can begin collecting their machine-printed dining and retail receipts -- having spent HK$800 or more -- to sign up for tours or reserve staycation offers in different stages between mid-May and June.

Following the suspension of the Spend-to-Redeem “Local Tours” owing to the 5th wave of the epidemic, spending receipts from December 10 last year are also eligible for redemption for a place in the new round of “Local Tours.”

HKTB Chairman Pang Yiu-kai said they hoped to take this opportunity to give the world an update on Hong Kong’s normality and latest tourism development as the city’s epidemic stabilizes, as well as authorities gradually relaxing the Covid curbs.

Meanwhile, executive director of HKTB Dane Cheng Ting-yat noted they will unveil three waves of city-wide dining, staycation, shopping, and entertainment offers to boost local ambiance, stimulate consumption, and create business opportunities for the trade.

“The Spend-to-Redeem ‘Local Tours’ and ‘Staycation Delights’ are only the first in a series of exciting activities, followed by a thematic promotion ‘Arts in Hong Kong’ in mid-May.

“When the social-distancing measures are further relaxed, the HKTB will introduce a series of mega-events and great offers dedicated to the 25th anniversary of the HKSAR,” said Cheng.
