How to win free tickets to Hong Kong this year
Fancy a free trip to Hong Kong? You might just be in luck! After more than two years of strict COVID-19 restrictions and a near closure of its borders, Hong Kong is finally open and eager to welcome foreign tourists back, and the city is boosting its arrival numbers by giving away 500,000 free airline tickets over the next couple of months. In this Pacific Prime Hong Kong article, we’ll tell you what this large-scale giveaway is all about and how you can enter for a chance to win. Good luck!
Reversing Hong Kong’s image when it comes to travel
While most of the world was closed for business due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Hong Kong was notorious as being one of the strictest places for travel and entry restirctions. It was both slow and cautious in its approach, and traveling in and out of the city was made challenging and expensive. Travelers had to put up with strict quarantine rules, which was 21 days of isolation at its peak, and multiple PCR tests – something that obviously didn’t fly well with most visitors.
In fact, it wasn’t just foreign tourists that were put off. A sizable percentage of Hong Kong’s expat population, many of whom felt trapped by the city’s policies, decided to leave. By the time Hong Kong showed signs of opening up and ending quarantine, many felt it was too late. It’s in this context that Hong Kong decided it needed a campaign to boost foreign arrival numbers and revive its image as one of Asia’s most dynamic cities. The solution? Airline tickets giveaway!
Head to the “World of Winners” page on March 1st, 2023
Let’s move on to the important info: how to enter! You’ll need to head to the World of Winners website starting March 1st to enter your name into the flight ticket lottery. The tickets will then be allocated in waves according to where you’re based: Southeast Asia (from March 1st), mainland China (from April 1st), the rest of the world (from May 1st), and last, but not least, Hong Kong (from July 1st).
There’ll be 500,000 free airline tickets up for grab across Cathay Pacific, HK Express, and Hong Kong Airlines. Costing the Hong Kong government approximately HKD $254.8 million in total, this large-scale giveaway is part of the “Hello Hong Kong” initiative that was unveiled last week but has been in the making for over two years. Stay tuned for more exciting information by keeping an eye on the World of Winners website.
