EXPLORE HONG KONG

With its mix of cultures, combining 150 years of colonial rule with 5000 years of Chinese traditions, Hong Kong is a truly unique city which has become synonymous with the Rugby Sevens. During your stay try to include some sightseeing as it would be a great shame to miss the remarkable sights and attractions that Hong Kong Island, Kowloon and The New Territories offer visitors to Asia’s world city.

 

Sightseeing options include
Victoria Peak
Stanley Market
Causeway Shopping
Cruise Victoria Harbour
Temple Street night market
Lan Kwai Fong
Repulse Bay
SoHo

Cathay Pacific/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens
IRB WORLD SERIES
23-25 March, 2012

 

WE ARE SORRY BUT OUR 2012 SEVENS PACKAGES ARE NOW SOLD OUT

 

The popularity of the Hong Kong 7's just keeps on growing, especially with England's success in recent years. Hong Kong is one of the world's most exciting holiday destinations and the sevens party lasts the whole weekend, as do the hangovers!

This is a great event that all rugby fans should experience once in a lifetime…if not more, so why not put the date in your diary and join us in the Far East in 2012. 

 
Upgrade to Virgin's Premium Economy cabin from just £599 return.

SEVENS TICKET - £126

The Hong Kong Sevens is a sell out each year and must be one of the hottest tickets in world sport. The event is managed by Rugby Events Asia Ltd (REAL). REAL distributes tickets to overseas supporters through a limited number of Official Travel Agents (OTA's) who have the experience and know how to support and sell the event on their behalf. Sporting Traveller has been appointed as an OTA for the past 10 years and offers guaranteed match tickets under license to REAL.  United Kingdom OTA's are listed on the REAL/HKRFU web site from when the event is launched in mid September. Many unauthorised Agents promote this event and claim to have access to official tickets…be warned as tickets may not materialise!  Tickets from OTA’s can only be bought as part of a full travel package. 

 

HOTEL OPTIONS

 

The Metropark Hotel     Superior Medium Class----> images/offers/metropark4.jpg

The modern Metropark is in the perfect position in Causeway Bay on Hong Kong Island to enjoy the Hong Kong Sevens (15 minutes walk) and the city's many attractions. All rooms are en suite with satellite TV, telephone, safe, mini bar, fridge and coffee / tea making facilities. Harbour Parlour rooms are effectively junior suites, twice the size of other rooms with a comfortable seating area overlooking the Harbour, complimentary breakfast, complimentary broad band access and larger bathroom. Facilities include the Café du Parc restaurant, Vic’s bar with live music and a roof top gym, sauna & swimming pool (open subject to weather) offering stunning views of the city and harbour.

Just 5 minutes from the Metropark, this new hotel is also superbly located in Causeway Bay, close to Victoria Park, 15 minutes walk from the Sevens Stadium and directly adjacent to Tin Hau MTR Station, which can take you to any point in the city.

Facilities include the Starlight Restaurant that offers a fusion of Western and Oriental Cuisine, the Tin Hau Bar and a rooftop gym & swimming pool (open subject to weather) with harbour views. Another great hotel for the Sevens.
