This collaboration, anticipated to skyrocket tourism figures, promises to position Hong Kong as the ultimate hotspot for adventurous souls seeking new experiences.

Notably, over 3.7 million of these visitors hailed from Southeast Asian and East Asian regions, with Thailand leading the charge.

Caesar Indra, President of Traveloka, expressed boundless excitement about the partnership with HKTB, highlighting the exponential growth in flight ticket sales to Hong Kong witnessed on their platform.

“This collaboration with HKTB solidifies our commitment to showcasing global destinations and encourages Thai travellers to embark on exhilarating journeys.”

Liew Chian Jia, Regional Director of Southeast Asia at HKTB, echoed Indra’s sentiments, emphasising the importance of this partnership in unlocking Hong Kong’s tourism potential.

“Our aim is not only to entice more travellers from Thailand and Southeast Asia but also to bolster the aviation and hospitality sectors in the region.”

Outdoor enthusiasts can revel in breathtaking trekking experiences amidst stunning landscapes, while food connoisseurs indulge in the city’s gastronomic delights, from delectable dim sum to succulent BBQ meats, reported Travel Daily News.

To sweeten the deal, the Hello Hong Kong Campaign on the Traveloka app beckons Thai travellers with irresistible offers on flights, hotels, and activities until May 12.
