Saving money in the world’s most expensive cities is often a difficult task – but visitors to Hong Kong can significantly stretch their travel budgets with the newly-launched Hong Kong Pass.
Available at www.hongkongpass.com.hk, the Hong Kong Pass offers savings of more than 50 per cent on a handpicked selection of attractions, tours and transport in Hong Kong and Macau, together with discounts on dining and shopping. The product is the second step into the Far East for The Leisure Pass Group, the world’s leading multi-attraction pass company, following the release of its Go Shanghai Card earlier this year. The Leisure Pass Group now operates in 36 cities worldwide.
Priced from £100* for two days, the pass is sent to purchasers via email and contains a unique QR code which can be used direct from a smartphone or printed at home if customers prefer. The QR code is scanned to join tours or gain entry to a featured attraction with nothing further to pay. Experiences on offer include local Hong Kong favourites and spectacular views, ensuring Hong Kong Pass users save money while seeing the best of the destination.
Speed from Hong Kong International Airport into the heart of the city in less than 25 minutes with an Airport Express return ticket, normally £21 but included with the Hong Kong Pass. And a day trip to Macau is just as easy with the inclusion of a return journey on the Cotai Jet high-speed ferry, normally £41.
