Groupon Hong Kong has unveiled its travel deals site - Groupon Getaways – as it seeks to meet growing demand from travel in the Chinese destination.

The new specialty deal site will offer Asia travel deals including discounts on flights, hotels and cruises through the service, with updates every Sunday.

Through the new site, consumers will be able to access various irresistible travel packages and useful travel information on vibrant cities and exotic hideaways around the world.

Groupon Getaways provides holiday planners amazing vacation options that suit a wide range of tastes and budgets, be it for just-married couples wanting to spend an extravagant honeymoon, or backpackers getting ready for a simple trip, all under unbeatable prices.

Meanwhile, merchants will enjoy significant exposure and streams of new customers through the group-buying platform.

“We are pleased to launch the Getaways site and bring online shoppers unbeatable holiday packages across Asia,” said Danny Yeung, chief executive officer of Groupon Hong Kong.

“We are committed to broadening our offerings and bringing more value to our consumers in Hong Kong while giving our travel partners a new avenue of reaching travel-seekers.”


Also in Asia today, City.Mobi is celebrating the success of its new guide to Hong Kong.

City.Mobi offers the most comprehensive mobile travel guides available, with over 800 cities in 200 countries listed. Each is developed by the City.Mobi team to combine into a single global travel directory.

However, each city retains its own mobile identity via a dedicated domain. Already on offer are Brussels.Mobi, Paris.Mobi, Sanfrancisco.Mobi and Sydney.Mobi.

HongKong.City.Mobi is the latest in this illustrious line up, offering click to call functionality – which means no scribbling down telephone numbers.

Most entries are also linked to websites where users can quickly access more detailed information if needed.

Other key features include information on accommodation, restaurants, attractions, entertainment, nightlife, shopping, and transport.

City.Mobi guides include user reviews and traveller utilities such as a translation guide, currency converter, news and local weather guide.
