Hong Kong will give away 500,000 free tickets to lure travelers

Hong Kong promised tourists an advertising campaign that opens the time of lifting bans. According to local media, 500,000 air tickets will participate in the campaign, which the authorities of China’s special economic zone are ready to distribute free of charge “to lure tourists back.” Such a publication from the local Sing Tao agency was picked up by the Chinese media.

In Hong Kong, the government is eagerly waiting to announce a plan to return to normal life in its October policy address. But this will happen only if the situation with Covid-19 does not worsen significantly.

The government estimates it will take one to two blocks for foreign tourists to return to Hong Kong, even after it lifts the remaining restrictions, which include a three-day travel ban for tourists — for now, they are barred from virtually all infrastructure, meaning pam shops, restaurants, etc.

The distribution of air tickets is one of the measures aimed at the development of tourism, the publication adds. The sources of information, however, are not specified. Just like the countries from where they will “lure” tourists so generously. However, this information is spread mainly by neighboring countries, in particular, Malaysia, so Ukrainian tourists are unlikely to get these tickets.
