What we do

As a boutique online publisher since 2010, Sassy Media Group is in the business of creating coveted content and long term relationships with loyal readers and strategic partners, through the cities we love. We don’t just tell our readers what's on and we are much more than just a guide. We act as a companion, a confidante, someone who will take you deep inside the city to all the very best spots, reveal to you the most unique experiences and be there every time you need an answer. We are for women, by women. So we know how to halve time, double impact, and triple the benefits for readers, collaborators and ourselves.A place where readers can be in the know and advertisers can share what they know.

Sassy Hong Kong is the go-to guide for all things Hong Kong. From where to eat and drink to what to do on the weekend to the best hikes and shopping, we pound the pavement in search of all the best our city has to offer. We support a strong, real-life community of Sassy readers looking to make the most out of life in the buzzing metropolis we call home!

Why we do

Sassy Media Group has a single vision to connect women to the cities they live in by producing insightful content and offering unique experiences. In each dynamic urban landscape where Sassy Media Group has a presence, we discern the hip before it happens and the cutting edge news. We unearth hidden gems and forgotten treasures. We handpick the themes, trends and titillations that our readers want to know about but don’t have time to find. We gather together all of our discoveries and share this insider knowledge like a virtual best friend.

Sassy Media Group aims to grow our strong community of readers in existing markets and further afield by continuing to partner with brands that connect with our audience, crafting content that inspires action and recommending experiences that make each day better for every urban woman.

How we do

What do our readers and our team have in common? We’ve all fallen in love with the taxi-clogged, dai-pai dong lined, crazy skyscraper city of Hong Kong. Whether we were born and raised here or arrived as adults, our appetites for all things Hong Kong are insatiable!

We’re here to inject a bit of sass into your day-to-day and help you navigate this buzzing metropolis… make the most out of life in the city that truly never sleeps! From swanky bars with a view, to hole-in-the-wall eateries, to fail-safe shopping spots, to our favourite hikes, we scour the streets to find all the very best that Hong Kong has to offer (in our humble opinions!).
