Book a stay aboard one of these unique Hong Kong houseboats

All aboard one of these unique Hong Kong houseboats.

Whilst we’re unable to travel to exotic far-flung destinations, we’re constantly on the lookout for unique getaways on home turf. And if you’ve already done the rounds at some of the best hotels in the city and ticked off several glamping spots, swap your hotel room for a houseboat and spend the weekend at sea. These four unique Hong Kong houseboats make for an extremely unique staycation.
