Of late, the UK travellers seeking cheap flights to Hong Kong repeatedly experience overbooking profiles. The dominant carriers, such as Air China, China Southern Airlines, China Eastern, Dragon, Cathay Pacific, KLM and British Airways despite adding new flights to HongKong and Macau frequently, often face exceeding number of passengers willing to explore this part of the world. The causes for this can be many.
According to the International Air Transport Association (IATA), the Asia-Pacific countries are showing higher growth of air traffic. As per the IATA Director General Giovanni Bisignani, “Europe is recovering at half the speed of Asia with passenger growth of 7.8 percent compared to the 15.5 percent growth in Asia-Pacific”. It is interesting to know that The People’s Republic of China bagged the maximum growth of demand for air travel in June. The 2010 World Expo Shanghai can be considered as a significant devise for driving most of the travellers to China including Macau. Also, with the introduction of cheap flights to Hong Kong by many airlines, a lot of tourists’ destinations have been diverted to East Asia.
Hong Kong, the Special Administrative Region of China (SAR), has over the years attracted travellers from all parts of the world. The place is rightly known as “the Pearl of the Orient” with an incredible blend of ethnicity and modernity. Its islands namely Cheung Chau and Lantau are places of serenity. The exotic beaches of Hong Kong, particularly Tung Wan, Kwun Yam Wan, Cheung Sha and Repulse Bay are places you will like to go again and again. The gourmet delights of the Oriental will follow your taste-buds wherever you go.
Hong Kong is a paradise for those who love shopping. With great shopping centres like Pacific Place, Times Square and The Landmark, It’s offers a lovely shopping experience. The Hong Kong Disneyland is one of the best in the world which enables you to become a child once again. The fun-filled park is divided into four chief parts namely Tomorrowland, Adventureland, Fantasyland and Main Street, USA. Other places which attract millions of travellers to Hong Kong include Ocean Park and Victoria Peak.
It is often visited due to Macau which is said to be ‘the Oriental Las Vegas’. This can be another possibility for the excessive demand for flights to Hong Kong. Macau is rich with a profusion of delights such as Baroque Catholic Churches, squares and plazas, temples, museums and casinos. Most people cover the 40KM distance of Macau from Hong Kong through trains, helicopters or ferries.
