The Philippines is now the second biggest travel market in Hong Kong, and the Marco Polo Hotels-Hong Kong gives Filipinos even more reasons to visit and enjoy this Chinese city.

From room upgrades to shopping discounts and free ferry rides, Filipino travelers to Hong Kong enjoy a world of privileges from the Marco Polo Hongkong, Gateway, and Prince hotels.

Samantha Poon, Marco Polo Hotels-Hong Kong director of communications, said their in-room guests enjoy exclusive offers across 125 lifestyle outlets at Hong Kong’s largest and most diverse shopping complex Harbour City.

What makes shopping easy for those staying at Marco Polo Hongkong, Gateway, or Prince is that the hotels form part of and have easy access to Harbour City. All Philippine tourists need to do is present their room key card at participating shops.

Star Ferry 4-day pass

Philippine Mastercard holders get additional privileges at the Marco Polo hotels in Hong Kong, starting with a complimentary Star Ferry four-day pass for two persons up until December 20, 2016.
