HKTB begins Free Tours Lucky Draw for vaccinated residents
Some 10,000 eligible residents may win a free tour.
The Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB) announced it will begin the “Free Tours Lucky Draw” that will offer vaccinated Hong Kong residents tours to boost the government’s vaccination programme.
“The HKTB will roll out a lucky draw to give away free tour quotas from the Spend-to-Redeem Free Tours programme… to reward the vaccinated and encourage vaccination whilst contributing our efforts in fighting the pandemic in Hong Kong and carrying on with our support to the tourism trade through organising local tours,” HKTB Chairman YK Pang said.
The HKTB will continue to promote the local ambience and bring impetus to the trade by offering a series of programmes, Pang added.
The draw will offer tours from the second round of the Spend-to-Redeem Free Tours programme that has over 180 tours. There will be a giveaway of about 20,000 quotas in designated local tours, amounting to about HK$10 million in total.
Residents may enter the Lucky Draw between 5 to 31 August.
Those eligible to participate must be Hong Kong ID card-holders, aged 18 or above, with at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
About 10,000 winners will be drawn at random, and each winner will be given two quotas to join a designated free tour.
