Cross-regional scavenger hunt to show how social media has revolutionised travel

Hong Kong will be alive with the buzz of social media representatives from across SE Asia and as far away as Australia as seven teams of two battle it out in the inaugural Accor Hong Kong Es-capers scavenger hunt from 9-11 September, using their social media contacts to assist them.

Designed by the teams at Novotel and ibis Hotels in Hong Kong, the teams of two from Singapore, Malaysia, China, Japan, Thailand, Indonesia and Australia will have to reach checkpoints, find clues and hunt down special photo opportunities to win points towards their team’s final tally.

From Kowloon to Hong Kong Island, they will be known as the Hong Kong Es-capers, easily identifiable in their special polo-shirts as they zip around the city, culminating in a cruise where prizes and accolades will be handed out to the winning teams in a series of creative challenges.

Also to celebrate the 5th birthday of Accor’s guest loyalty programme, Le Club AccorHotels, five lucky guests staying in-house in Accor’s 5 HK Hotels on the night of 10 September will be awarded a special invitation to a sunset birthday cruise and a prize of 20,000 points each to reward their loyalty.
