More sex – that’s what Hong Kong men want during their overseas holidays, according to a survey conducted by online travel agency Zuji. Local women, though, would rather get out of bed and do more shopping.

The March survey of 736 people also found that nearly 20 per cent of respondents thought that travelling together as a couple didn’t help strengthen their relationship – and even caused setbacks.

When men were asked what they most regretted not doing during overseas trips with their partners, 43 per cent cited “intimate activities” (such as bathing together and taking nude photos) and 22 per cent cited “surprises for partners”. But when it came to women, 38 per cent said “spending more” and 29 per cent said “surprises for partners”. Just 18 per cent cited “intimate activities”.

The survey, which had the theme of “love and romance” for spring, found that Japan remained Hongkongers’ favourite travel destination (winning 45 per cent of the vote), followed by Taiwan (35 per cent) and Europe (24 per cent), which took third place from China in the previous survey and entered the top three for the first time.
