Hong Kong launches mobile data passes

The Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB), in partnership with PCCW, has launched the Discover Hong Kong Tourist SIM Card for visitors.

The card is available in the form of 5-Day and 8-Day Passes and provides 1.5GB and 5GB of mobile data usage respectively with unlimited local voice calls and Wi-Fi service, as well as a flat rate IDD 0060 service to 36 destinations.

The prepaid Discover Hong Kong tourist SIM card 5-day pass, which retails at HK$69 (approx. AUD10) and the 8-day pass at HK$96 (approx. AUD14), will allow visitors to remain in touch with family and friends during their Hong Kong holiday via their social media platforms, including Facebook.

With their smart phones, holders of the Discover Hong Kong Tourist SIM Card can visit a dedicated mobile website, specially designed in conjunction with the HKTB, to access the latest local travel information, as well as visitor and shop discount offers.

Within Hong Kong the card is available for sale at the HKTB's Visitor Centre (at the Star Ferry Concourse in Kowloon), PCCW-HKT shops and authorized PCCW-HKT mobile service dealers, as well as convenience stores including 7-Eleven, Circle K and Vango.
