From November 25-28, 2022, Hong Kong hosted an incentive group from Thailand’s beauty brand IB Skincare, following the relaxation of restrictions for inbound travellers.
Aside from wining and dining on local specialities such as Hong Kong-style roast goose rice, the group’s itinerary included a tour of the brand-new Hong Kong Palace Museum, temple-hopping, and an exclusive Christmas tree light-up moment at Hong Kong WinterFest at the West Kowloon Cultural District, the city’s new flagship art and cultural quarter.
Kenneth Wong, general manager, MICE & cruise, Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB), said: “We’re delighted to welcome our friends from Thailand to Hong Kong again. This group marked the very first of our line-up of incentive groups from shorthaul markets, with even more coming in the future.
“It indicates encouraging overseas demand for motivational incentive programmes to Hong Kong, especially after the recent implementation of favourable arrangements for inbound tour groups.”
Inbound tour groups received by licensed travel agents, and have pre-registered itineraries, are permitted to enter tourist attractions and dine in designated premises.
