It’s that time of year again where we get on the scales and make those New Year promises to ourselves – lose X number of kilograms, quit smoking and actually use that expensive gym membership you signed up for last January. Living in a city like HK, we tend to rush through delivered lunch boxes at our desks, client dinners and drinks each night, not to mention the regular free-flow champagne brunch or LKF ladies night. With constant exposure to polluted air, we end up with a toxic routine, which means for us, a body detox is essential to our long-term health.
Now it’s easier than ever! With so many all-inclusive retreats only a short-haul flight away, they enable prevention that will save you money in the long-run, and is far more effective than a cure.
At Flight Centre, our highly experienced and passionate travel consultants will carefully design a lifestyle holiday to your individual needs. Whether it is for detoxification, wellness yoga or just to relax and unwind, we will always go out of our way to find you the perfect health & wellness packages at a great price.
