Now that a travel bubble between Singapore and Hong Kong is in the works, residents of the Lion City can start planning year-end stays at these notable properties.
Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong
When it comes to location, the Four Seasons in Hong Kong’s Central district ticks all the boxes: it’s connected to the IFC Mall and an Airport Express station, while the ferry piers for excursions to outlying islands are just a short stroll away.
