The ultimate Five-Star destination; there are more Mobil Five-Star rated hotels and spas in Hong Kong and Macau than any other destination in the world.

Mobil Travel Guide, the originator of the prestigious Star ratings and certifications program, awarded Hong Kong & Macau with the most Mobil Five-Star rated hotels and spas in the company’s history. The unveiling of the esteemed properties that made Mobil Travel Guide’s coveted Star ratings list coincides with the brand’s release of their second international guide, Mobil Travel Guide: Hong Kong & Macau.

Five new Mobil Five-Star hotels and three new Mobil Five-Star spas in Hong Kong and Macau have been added to the coveted Mobil Travel Guide Five-Star list, a list that consists of only sixty-nine properties globally. The newest Mobil Travel Guide Five-Star properties in Hong Kong and Macau include: The Peninsula Hong Kong, the Landmark Mandarin Oriental, the Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong, The Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong, the Wynn Macau, The Mandarin Spa, The Peninsula Spa by ESPA and the Spa at Wynn Macau.

“We spent over a year immersing ourselves in this region. The physical properties in both Hong Kong and Macau are extraordinarily impressive, but it is ultimately their meticulous attention to service that makes this region the ultimate Five-Star destination,” stated Shane O’Flaherty, President and CEO of Mobil Travel Guide.

The honors were presented by Mobil Travel Guide and the Hong Kong Tourism at the prestigious ceremony at The Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong on November 6. Key leaders in Hong Kong’s tourism market, including many of the region's top hoteliers and government officials, welcomed the brand to the local market.

Mobil Travel Guide’s second international title, Hong Kong & Macau, features details on the newest Mobil Star rated properties, as well as in-depth information on this popular tourist destination, including how to prepare for your trip, where to stay, dine, and shop; key cultural attractions; One, Two and Three Day itineraries; a comprehensive chapter on Hong Kong’s history; transportation information and useful tips on navigating the area.

Beyond the standard “must see attractions”, Hong Kong & Macau offers special “Inspector’s Tips” dispersed throughout the guide, which provide indispensable insider details on how to make the most of the very best aspects of the city’s hotels, spas, restaurants and sights, all uncovered by Mobil Travel Guide’s expert staff.

The Hong Kong portion of the guide includes information on all Mobil Travel Guide Star-rated properties in the city as well as information on how to shop, where to get the most authentic local cuisine or a taste of home, how to experience the luxury spa scene, how to navigate the MTR (railway system), where to spend and where to save and unique must-see day trips to the outer regions of the city.

Much like Las Vegas, Macau offers more than just a great gambling experience. The Macau portion of this guide includes information on hotels, resorts and casinos in the area as well as the best spas, shows, interesting festivals throughout the year, information on Macau’s 25 heritage sites and a guide to the best shopping throughout the city.

Mobil Travel Guide: Hong Kong & Macau ($17.95 USD, 224 pages) marks the brand’s second international title. Other international titles to be released in 2009 include Mobil Travel Guide: London (June), Mobil Travel Guide: Singapore (July) and Mobil Travel Guide: Dublin (September). Mobil Travel Guide: Beijing was released this past year.

Mobil Travel Guide is distributed by Langensheidt Publishing Group.

The Arts and Entertainment Singapore has to offer to tourists is quite aplenty. Don't understand why others always put singapore down. Interesting post nonetheless. Keep them coming...
Mobil is not necessarily putting Singapore down, just because they're praising the destinations in HK.

As mentioned in the article,

"Mobil Travel Guide: Hong Kong & Macau ($17.95 USD, 224 pages) marks the brand’s second international title. Other international titles to be released in 2009 include Mobil Travel Guide: London (June), Mobil Travel Guide: Singapore (July) and Mobil Travel Guide: Dublin (September). Mobil Travel Guide: Beijing was released this past year."

When they publish the guide for Singapore in July 2009, surely there will be lots of entries as well.
