Two months ago (omg, has it been that long already?), we ventured out to one of our favorite favorite world destinations, Hong Kong, to check out all the fun stuff happening at Hong Kong's official airline, Cathay Pacific. Were you jealous a little bit? Doesn't Hong Kong sound awesome? Maybe that's because it really, really is. And now Cathay Pacific is launching a worldwide contest to give one person, one very lucky person, the chance to travel to Hong Kong and thenthe worldon unlimited flights for 80 days, including 4- or 5-star hotels, a daily allowance and travel insurance.
There is no excuse for not entering this contest. The prize is just...heart-archiningly awesome. Even if you don't win, the top 8 finalists will be flown to HK for the final judging anyway, so heyyou still get to hang out in Hong Kong.
The contest is open now and the entry period ends on March 6. Here's how to enter:
· First, you need to "Like" their Facebook page
· Next, figure out your ideal itinerary for all those 80 days of unlimited travel on the Cathay Pacific and Dragonair route network. Remember: Cathay will give you 3 nights hotel in each location.
Tell Cathay about your around-the-world trip by relating your itinerary, hopes and dream via a video, photos or a simple story.
· If you're going the video route, make sure to read through the Terms and Conditions of the contest here, as there's quite a lot of info to abide by for such a large contest.
Lastly, GOOD LUCK! Our peeps at Cathay say they've had hundreds of entries in just the first day of the contest, so get on it! And oh yesstart practicing your Cantonese.
