With many people currently thinking about booking their holidays for the year they may want to consider the option of flying to China.
Holidays to China can be anything the potential tourist wishes to make of them, as the country has some of the planet’s greatest natural wonders, a rich cultural history and thriving cities.
Soon it will be even easier to plan oriental tailor made trips, as Hong Kong Airlines, one of the area’s premier carriers, will boost its fleet by ordering ten Airbus A380s, reports the BBC.
The airline will spend £2.5 billion on the aircraft, which is the world’s largest passenger jet, as it sees business growing in the future.
Kenneth Thong, the company’s corporate governance head, told Bloomberg television in Hong Kong: “We think the business connection between Asia and Europe is going to be very exciting for the next couple of years, after the current [economic] crisis is over. We are planning for the aftermath.”
The emergence of China as a world super power and popular tourist destination has meant that Hong Kong Airlines is continuously looking at options to help it cope with the increased demand.
This latest news comes after the firm purchased several A330s to transport passengers from European cities to Hong Kong.
Once at the bustling metropolis, those on a China holiday will find no shortage of things to do and places to visit.
Hong Kong was recently named in TripAdvisor’s list of the top ten destinations in the world and the site stated that tourists should not miss out on the opportunity of seeing Victoria Peak, Star Ferry Pier and the Ngong Ping 360.
Those who would rather give their taste buds an experience to remember could opt to try a Hong Kong egg tart, which CNN GO states is one of the best 50 culinary delights on the planet.
