Christmas came early: Win luxury vacations in Lifestyle Asia KL’s 12-week holiday getaway contest

Updated on January 11 2018

Christmas came early at Lifestyle Asia this year! Privileged to have generous partners and with a lot of exciting things happening in our KL office, we think Santa has noticed us playing all nice (okay, a little naughty sometimes) throughout 2017. But what are blessings for if they’re not shared, right?

And so, to give a little holiday cheer to our dear readers, we decided to throw a special contest where you can win accommodations in luxury hotels and resorts here and abroad!

The contest

Beginning today (9 October) until 31 December, we’ll be running a 12-week holiday getaway contest. Every Monday for each week, we’ll reveal one luxurious destination — from Penang, Langkawi, and Kota Kinabalu all the way to China — for one weekly winner and their plus one.

Winners will also be named on our Instagram account @lifestyleasiakl every Monday. So, make sure you follow us now before scrolling further down.
