Traveloka rolls out special deals to attract SE Asia tourists to visit Hong Kong.

Traveloka, a leading travel platform in Southeast Asia, recently announced a strategic collaboration with the Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB) aimed at consolidating its position as a trusted travel partner in Thailand and across Southeast Asia.

The partnership involves showcasing the charm and splendour of Hong Kong to travellers in Thailand and the broader region, inviting them to discover all that the city has to offer. This collaboration is expected to further boost tourism growth in Hong Kong and position the city as a premier destination for Thai and Southeast Asian travellers.

Hong Kong’s tourism sector has seen a steady revival since the reopening of international borders. Data released by the HKTB indicates that from January to December 2023, the number of international tourists arriving in Hong Kong surged to 34 million, marking a significant increase compared to the same period in 2022. Of these, over 3.7 million visitors came from Southeast Asian and East Asian countries. Notably, visitor arrivals from Thailand in December 2023 exceeded pre-pandemic levels, reaching 106%.

Sales of flight tickets to the city almost quadrupled in the fourth quarter of 2023 compared to the same period the previous year. Indra highlighted that the partnership between Traveloka and HKTB would further emphasise their commitment to promoting global destinations on their platform and encouraging Thai travellers to explore new experiences.

Liew Chian Jia, Regional Director, Southeast Asia of the Hong Kong Tourism Board, stressed the importance of the partnership with Traveloka, pointing out its potential to unlock tourism opportunities for Hong Kong and offer valuable insights into consumer preferences. Jia hopes that the collaboration will not only attract more travellers from Thailand and Southeast Asia to explore the charms of Hong Kong but also contribute positively to the aviation and hospitality industries in the region.
