Dr Pang Yiu-kai, Chairman of the Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB) welcomed the announcement of the details of the specific arrangements for inbound tour groups by the HKSAR Government on 18 November, which will allow inbound tour group visitors to dine in designated areas of restaurants and reduce the times of COVID-19 nucleic acid tests.
Dr Pang said, “Hong Kong is one of Asia’s most festive destinations in winter. Becoming effective before the travel peak season of Christmas and Chinese New Year, the new arrangements will help bring back short-haul visitors to experience Hong Kong’s seasonal festivity, especially those from Southeast Asia. The HKTB will continue to work closely with trade partners in promoting the diverse and exciting activities and experiences in town to attract inbound visitors to the city.”
“We are glad that the announcement of the new travel guidelines has been well received by our Southeast Asian partners and consumers “, says Mr. Raymond Chan, Regional Director, Southeast Asia, Hong Kong Tourism Board. “We will be rolling out more trade and marketing activities in the upcoming months to welcome Southeast Asian group tours to Hong Kong.”
