Plan ahead for the HK-SG Air Travel Bubble with Booking.com’s top 5 picks
The global pandemic has halted all the travel plans travellers may have made since 2020 – with the past year especially tough for those based in Singapore, with a 2-month long circuit breaker and restrictions to socialising in place.
New Booking.com research reveals that during this travel hiatus, Singaporean travellers (62%) are planning ahead for the long-awaited return to travels and are most excited to put that planning time to good use. Not only are these well planned, but also well equipped… with extra leave! Almost half (54%) have saved up extra vacation days so they can enjoy a longer trip when they’re able to travel.
Booking.com hears the cries of Singaporeans and remains committed to providing the greatest flexibility and reassurance when it comes to future travel plans. Despite the ever-evolving pandemic situation in Singapore, we know our appetite to travel still remains undiminished and we remain optimistic with the ongoing talks of the air travel bubble between Singapore and Hong Kong.
With this in mind, we have compiled some of the top – and most flexible – deals for Singaporeans looking to make a trip to Hong Kong once the air travel bubble is launched, enabling you to save at least 10% on local breaks, longer trips or anything in between.
