The Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB) has launched 360 Hong Kong Moments

Hong Kong and Singapore enjoy strong trade, investment, finance, tourism and people-to-people ties.

Both cities are major aviation hubs, and the international air route between the two cities was among the busiest in the Asia-Pacific region before the pandemic. Travel links between Hong Kong and Singapore are important for both cities.

In conjunction with this announcement and to inspire visitors to explore Hong Kong from all angles, the Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB) has launched “360 Hong Kong Moments” – opening up the city virtually by way of wholesome and immersive content, designed to remind the world what a wonderful and all-encompassing destination Hong Kong is.

“We welcome the SAR Government’s announcement of the in-principle agreement to establish a bilateral Air Travel Bubble between Hong Kong and Singapore. The announcement is a timely match with the HKTB’s launch of a standardised hygiene protocol for tourism-related sectors with the Hong Kong Quality Assurance Agency. HKTB also hopes that the ongoing series will keep our destination brand alive and ensure that our city stays top-of-mind for people around the world before other travel bubbles are formed.” HKTB Chairman Dr. YK Pang said.

The first in the series of 360 Hong Kong Moments is a 360-degree virtual-reality film, created especially for this year’s Great Outdoors Hong Kong campaign, which takes viewers on an immersive journey across Hong Kong’s surprisingly easy-to-access green territory.


From city to mountains, and coastlines to parks, the stunning footage fully immerses viewers in the rhythms and sensations of Hong Kong’s green lungs, bringing global audiences as close to Hong Kong as possible — no matter where they are in the world.
