The Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB), in conjunction with Cathay Pacific Airways, brings
you the Discover Hong Kong‧AR to help you experience everything Hong Kong has to offer.

technology, the app recognises what the camera is seeing and provides images, information
and directions depending on where and what you're looking at. You don't need an Internet
connection to use this app, as all the maps and information are available offline, meaning no
extra roaming charges on your phone bill*. And English, Traditional Chinese and Simplified
Chinese are supported.
