Another Hong Kong trip, why not?

DYNAMIC. That’s what Hong Kong is. Chances are, it was your first destination abroad (—and it was mine!) and you fell in love with it. With its ever-changing landscape, Hong Kong is one place we can never have enough of.

The direct flights from Davao made the place an easy-breezy weekend get-away for us. Whether it’s scoring another IT bag or a new gadget (tax free!), or to sate a craving from a Michelin-starred resto, or taking the kids to the theme park where mom and dad took you for the first time, HK is now that “next door” go-to city.

Now, Marco Polo Hong Kong is luring us to hop on that plane and explore, discover and experience more of the city while enjoying the comforts of their chic hotels Marco Polo Hongkong, Gateway and Prince—the power trio of Canton Road.

Why Marco Polo? Because its location is a gem. It is connected to the biggest mall in the city, the Harbor City Mall, which houses 450 boutiques, including world’s leading luxury brands and restaurants with Michelin stars twinkling on it. The hotels are on the doorstep of the Express Rail Station, Mainland China Ferry Terminal, and short walk away are landmarks: the Hong Kong Cultural Centre, 1881 Heritage and the newly opened Xiqu Centre.

Recently, the Marco Polo Hong Kong team came to town bearing good news. General Manager Dalip Singh with Director of Communications Samantha Poon shelled out more reasons to be in Hong Kong on the coming months.

Here are the sweetest deals.

1. Marco Polo Hongkong Hotel’s Beauty and Bees Suite Stay.
