Hong Kong

Hong Kong is vibrant city and a major gateway to mainland china. Famous for towering skyscrapers, 40 percent of the territory is made up of country park and nature reserves. Hong Kong island steals the limelight with its nightly, light show spectacular, but there are actually 263 islands in Hong Kong.

Don't panic if your hotel is missing a fourth floor. Omitting the number 4 is common because four sounds like the word 'death' in Chinese. Conversely, lucky number 8 represents wealth.

Child friendly rating

Travelling around Hong Kong with kids can be challenging. If you're travelling with a toddler or baby, you will find that hardly anywhere is stroller friendly, as its hilly and there are steps everywhere. However, saying that, there is so much for children to do in Hong Kong. From Disneyland and Ocean Park, to riding the Mid-level escalators, Going Pink Dolphin watching and riding the star ferry the list is endless.

We give A child friendly of 9/10

Typical itinerary: 

  • Why did you become a travel agent?
    As a travel journalist holidays are my passion but unfortunately press trips are few and far between and travel is expensive. I used to book direct with hotels or on Booking.com all the time not knowing that commission was built into EVERY holiday I booked! Now I book those EXACT same holidays and get access to those exact FAM trips but I get to KEEP that commission I used to give to the holiday companies!
  • Are you actually a legit company?
    Absolutely! Our Travel Host company is 25 years old and is a proud member of ABTA! Our suppliers are ATOL protected! If we weren't legitimate then companies like TUI and James Villas wouldn’t have recently partnered up with us.
  • Do you have to have travel experience?
    NOPE! We have extensive FREE training with all our suppliers as well as constant in house company training! You can train with Disney and become a Disney specialist, a jumeriah specialist or like me a maldieves and luxury family travel specialist.
  • Is this a Network Marketing business like those makeup ones?
    Definitely not, I have worked for two NWM companies and I can certainly say this isn’t the same at all. It is totally optional if you want to be a business builder or just a Travel Agent. We have no targets, no point system ... you book a holiday... you get paid commission ... simple ❤️ There is an optional travel affiliate opportunity. But it is a completely SEPARATE business opportunity. Meaning there are other revenue streams available too.
  • Are you restricted to the holidays you can book?
    Not at all! When you join you get an IATA number which is a legal requirement to book holidays. I can contact ANY hotel worldwide and receive an agent commisisonable rate and discount!!!
  • Do i need a big social media following to to successful?
    Absolutely not. Built my whole travel agent business from booking holidays for the school mums at Jasmine's school.
  • What if I join and change my mind?
    That's fine you can cancel at anytime.
  • How do I join?
    Message the person who you are speaking to about the business or added you into this link and request a THREE way chat with me! Or simply get set up straight away. Within a few hours you could be a qualified Independent Travel Agent ✈️🌴 This really is the best business ever ... I’ve met some of the most AMAZING people! We are one community & everyone is welcome ❤️
  • Are there any sign up fees?
    Yes there’s a one off payment of £142 which is your iata licence charge. This will be a number that gives you global recognition as a travel agent. You then pay £32 a month which covers your admin, support, insurance and Back office systems. All training is totally free!
  • How soon can I start booking holidays ?
    Mandatory training is four 1 hour videos, then you will be licenced to book holidays. However there are other optional trainings we give online such as supplier training and how to approach hotels etc ... so I would say 2 evenings of study and you’ll be good to go!
  • I have a full time job will this work for me?
    Yes!!!!!! We have no targets or quotas so you can absolutely do this around a full time job.
  • Is it a scam???
    Well... that’s what I thought to be honest! ... It all sounded too good to be true! In fact I was asked 21 times before I decided it was for me. I needed every question answered and there were a lot, trust me! I’ve spent 3 years building a platform on Instagram based on reality and trust I wasn’t going to throw it away for a get rich quick fad However I can tell you now, I did my research, lots of it! I asked my questions! Hundreds of them ...it really is as good as it looks And I’m livid I didn’t jump in sooner!
