In 1949-1950, romance blossomed in Hong Kong in the movie “Love Is a Many-Splendored Thing.” The movie’s female protagonist declared, “I’m so happy it frightens me.” Monograms can’t promise you romance, but we can promise you happiness on this Hong Kong vacation.

This is a one-of-a-kind feature offered by Monograms to ensure you are comfortable and supported throughout your vacation.

Your vacation begins the moment you arrive in Hong Kong, as we can whisk you from the airport to your selected hotel. Your Local Host will greet you with a warm welcome and materials to familiarize you with the city.
