Public holidays are a factor.
The leading global travel search engine Skyscanner has revealed that Hong Kong travellers start planning their trips earlier than many people in other parts of the world.
According to a release from Skyscanner, looking at search data of Skyscanner users in June 2015, Hong Kongers plan their travels 66 days before departure – a full week ahead of the global average of 59 days.
Skyscanner found that Malaysian travellers were top early travel-planners at 79 days, followed by Taiwan at 77 days.
Here's more from Skyscanner:
Travellers in China only start planning their travels 40 days ahead.
“The results show that Hong Kong travellers plan well-ahead. This may be due to the fact that Hong Kong people are good at matching their travels with public holidays to get as much as they can out of trips,” said Fang Fang, Marketing Manager, Hong Kong and Taiwan for Skyscanner.
“Getting the best deal on your chosen route takes more than just checking flight fares 66 days beforehand.”
