Description***The app has now included the Accommodation information (Hong Kong Hotels Association member and HKTB Quality Tourism Services (QTS) Scheme Accredited Visitor Accommodation)***
The Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB) in conjunction with Cathay Pacific Airways, brings you the Discover Hong Kong‧AR to help you experience everything Hong Kong has to offer. Use your phone’s camera to scan your surroundings and, with Augmented Reality (AR) technology, the app recognises what the camera is seeing and provides images, information and directions depending on where and what you're looking at. You don't need an Internet connection to use this app, as all the maps and information are available offline, meaning no extra roaming charges on your phone bill*. And English, Traditional Chinese and Simplified Chinese are supported.
