What’s on this weekend…


With only 14 Monday’s left until Christmas (how’s that for a wake up call?!) we’re determined to make the most of our weekends before we’re hit with the crazy season! And with summer coming to an end (boo!) and Hong Kong swiftly moving in and stocking up for the cooler months, we remain defiant – getaways booked, bikini in hand and dreams of winning a giant inflatable swan…

Paradise in Palawan

We know, we know, we’ve just had a public holiday with the Mid-Autumn Festival. But that doesn’t mean we can’t lust over the dreamy vacay packages that Flight Centre are offering up at the moment… especially as there’s yet another long weekend ahead for us in October! If, like us, you can’t resist travelling to new, exciting destinations, then don’t miss out on Flight Centre’s deal to El Nido Pangulasian Island in Palawan, Philippines. Voted ‘the world’s most beautiful island’ two years in a row, this tropical treasure boasts pristine beaches, unspoilt wildlife and breathtaking sunsets… what more could you really want?! For $11,099 per person, you’ll get return flights from Hong Kong to Manila and from Manila to El Nido, plus three nights’ accommodation in a Canopy Villa (with your own balcony!) at El Nido Resorts Pangulasian Island with breakfast. You won’t regret booking a long weekend break at this idyllic stay where you can sink your toes into powdery white sand, swim in the crystal clear blue sea and soak in the sun. Lounge by the stunning infinity pool, indulge in a Filipino massage or enjoy activities like kayaking, windsurfing, paddle boarding and snorkelling, which are all available as a bonus with the deal. This is one destination that’s a must on the bucket-list, so take advantage of this all-inclusive deal and make the most of the stunning surroundings that are just a hop, skip and jump away from HK.
