Hong Kong is one of those places I’ve always longed to go. I’m forever reading about it’s eclectic mix of Chinese and British culture, but I’ve never actually made it there. The former British colony is a major business hub, an urban playground and a perfect blend of old and new.

It’s 9:32am on a bleak Monday morning and you’re sitting at your desk Googling holidays and wishing you were far, far away. You scroll through your Facebook and Instagram feeds envying Insta models (yes, they’re models because no one goes trekking through the jungle looking that perfect!), and you spend a good hour or so pinning new travel destinations to your endless Pinterest boards. You desperately want a holiday where you can just sit and be. Maybe with a drink (or two) in hand. Enter the all-inclusive holiday.
