Want to get away, or WFH (Work From 'Hotel') without staying out overnight? A workcation or daycation in Hong Kong will be perfect for you!
With travelling still off the books and WFH being very much the SOP, staying within the same four walls 24/7 is now, sadly, part of the new normal for Hongkongers. Though there are online games and snazzy wellness gadgets to keep us (relatively) sane at home, we believe that heading out the door and getting a change of scenery may benefit your mental health – and therefore productivity – as well. And since workcations or daycations (one-day staycations) are generally more affordable than full staycation packages, they are the ideal way to spend your day-off, or an easy WFH – Work From Hotel – alternative. Tempted? Read on to find the best daycations in Hong Kong right now.
