29 June, 2020 (Hong Kong SAR, China) – As the tourism industry gradually shows green shoots of recovery, Global Hotel Alliance's DISCOVERY members are encouraged to explore and redeem the award-winning loyalty program's Local Experiences across its member brand hotels in established destinations.
DISCOVERY by Global Hotel Alliance provides 17 million members around the world, recognition at over 570 hotels and resorts in 85 countries. Members are welcome to experience a range of complimentary benefits throughout their stays and upgraded qualification as they stay more frequently. The Alliance’s Local Experiences programme also offers an array of activities from sightseeing tours to culinary journeys, making every moment experiential.
Amongst the 16 categories, Local Experiences are available in each destination. If travellers are in the Chongqing area, a rejuvenating massage above the skyline is available at Niccolo Chongqing, the city’s highest sky hotel overlooking exhilarating views. In other destinations, DISCOVERY members can learn more about the art of Cantonese Opera at Marco Polo Hongkong Hotel or join a cultural walking tour at The Murray, Hong Kong, a Niccolo Hotel and discover the lesser-seen sides of the city for a unique journey.
Authentic Huaiyang cuisine created at Marco Polo Changzhou, is a tantalising taste sensation with every bite.
With international travel currently limited, the DISCOVERY programme provides the ideal opportunity to rediscover and explore untapped treasures in our own neighbourhoods. By encouraging local travellers and DISCOVERY members to appreciate their home town's attractions, wanderlust travel is sure to be an inspiration for all.
