Next August 2008, athletes and spectators around the world will come together in Hong Kong for the XXVIIII Olympiad’s Summer Olympic Equestrian Games from August 9-22, 2008. For many travelers, finding accommodations in Hong Kong and the surrounding area can be daunting, but Cross Country International (CCI) has taken the guess work out of the process and is offering a wide variety of options for equestrians and travelers alike.
“We are offering travel packages that are complete with event tickets, wonderful hotel accommodations near equestrian venues and interesting city tours,” said Karen Lancaster, President, Cross Country International. “Spectators will enjoy cheering their favorite dressage, jumping or eventing competitors up close and may have a chance to meet them at Hong Kong’s Jockey Club.”
CCI and Pegasus Adventures have formed a joint venture to manage the sales of tickets hotels and transport services during the 2008 Equestrian Games. Pegasus Adventures, established in 1976, is one the largest incoming tour operators in Europe and Asia, and offers the credibility and security a project of such complexity requires. Cross Country International, an equestrian adventure travel company in its 20th year, has personally inspected all hotels, venues, transport and services in Hong Kong.
“We have secured more than 300 hotel rooms and ticket packages. Spectators want a choice of luxury and affordable accommodations as close to the Olympic venues as possible, and we can provide them,” said Lancaster.
In addition, the packages include additional services like arrival and departure transport to and from the new airport, auto and mobile phone rental, and 24-hour call service for information and emergency, which will make guests comfortable and create a sense of security throughout their stay in Hong Kong.
In addition, if visitors want to extend their stay and visit other locales in Mainland China to Xi'An – Shaniagh or take Shanghai – Yangtze River Cruise to visit– Tibet - Xian these trips can also be provided.
