agoda.com, Asia’s leading hotel booking site and part of Nasdaq-listed Priceline Group (Nasdaq: PCLN), today announced super city deals in some of Asia’s most exciting urban destinations.
As far as big cities go, Asia’s got plenty. Full of neon lights, noise and people, there’s nothing quite like a trip to one of the region’s super cities to engage and challenge the senses. While beach breaks and country sojourns are fine for longer holidays, a short city break or luxury staycation can be just as rewarding – and just as relaxing – as an extended vacation in a remote destination.
The following are just a handful of Asia’s superlative urban centers. Full of energy and excitement yet offering plenty of opportunity to escape and unwind, these cities have it all: exotic food, the latest tech, great shopping, lush spas, and an inspiring mix of modern and traditional architecture.
agoda.com has secured some hard-to-find city rates* in each destination – book one now for your next urban getaway! *All rates per night. Nightly rates variable depending on travel dates and availability.
