Hong Kong’s COVID-19 situation has taken a turn for the worse with increasing case numbers leading to heightened government restrictions on social distancing and travel. With these stressful periods, it’s important to seek out breaks to enjoy in the city, even just for a short while. With this, Hong Kong has seen many residents opt for staycations, which grant exactly that – a short and sweet escape away from the city without having to travel.
While Hong Kong may seem fairly small, the region is dense and diverse. Although going to a hotel in the same area that you work and live in may not sound too exciting, a staycation can be a great way to reset, get a change of pace and scenery. Luckily, Hong Kong has plenty of swanky hotels where you can pamper yourself.
Read on for some of the best hotels in Hong Kong for your next staycation. With frequently changing restrictions and rules concerning COVID-19, be sure to check availability in advance through their websites.
