The Hong Kong Tourism Board will give tourists 1 million free dining vouchers that they can use to get discounts on their orders at bars and restaurants. Hong Kong Night Treats vouchers worth HK$100 will be distributed in November as part of the recently launched Night Vibes Hong Kong campaign to revitalise the territory’s after-sunset economy.
Tourists who receive these vouchers can present them at bars participating in the campaign, as well as at any of the SAR’S 500-plus Quality Tourism Services Scheme-accredited restaurants after 6pm.
In addition, visitors to Hong Kong will also get HK$20 tickets on one of three specified routes on open-top bus night tours from November 2023-January 2024. Tourists can pick tours either on BigBus or Rickshaw Sightseeing Bus and see popular attractions and landmarks on Hong Kong Island and Kowloon after 6pm.
The Night Vibes Hong Kong campaign is part of a larger government objective to revive the city’s economy after it largely closed its borders during the Covid-19 pandemic. The biggest campaign so far has been Hello Hong Kong — an initiative in which 500,000 free round-trip airline tickets were given to tourists from across the world to visit the SAR. The campaign kicked off in March and will end this month.
As part of the Hello Hong Kong campaign, tourists are also entitled to Hong Kong Goodies, a series of offers by which they can claim free drinks, souvenirs, rides on the Airport Express, or visits to popular attractions in the territory.
Authorities also kicked off Happy Hong Kong over the summer in a bid to give residents of the territory and visitors to the city a chance to enjoy new leisure and recreational experiences. The highlights of this campaign included a Cinema Day during which Hongkongers could buy movie tickets for HK$30, and a series of Gourmet Marketplaces held across the city.
