Hong Kong’s enchanting neighbourhoods and islands offer a sensory feast. You may find yourself swaying along on a historic double-decker tram, cheering with the hordes at the city-centre horse races, or simply gazing out at the glorious harbour. What most visitors don’t immediately realise is that over 70% of Hong Kong is mountains and sprawling country parks, some also home to geological and historical gems. Escape the city limits on one of the world’s smoothest transport systems and spend your day wandering in a Song-dynasty village, hiking on a deserted island or kayaking among volcanic sea arches.
Over whelming, yet quaintly charming. Cosmopolitan, but still soaked in ancient tradition. Hong Kong harmoniously blends the old and new, the east and west, and brings you a perfect holiday experience. Indulge in simple pleasures like hiking to a remote mountain peak or sipping hot soup while gazing across a beautiful harbor.
Enjoy the glitz and glamour of the up market restaurants and bars in town. For a spiritual experience, head to the monasteries, stop by the giant Buddha, or visit the many temples. Shopping opportunities are many, the beaches are perfect to laze on, and there are plenty of new cuisines to palate. Hong Kong offers a diverse experience to every kind of traveler. Hong Kong is a city-state located on China’s south coast, and is one of the most populous cities in the world.

It is currently divided into numerous territories, including Hong Kong Island- the tourist hub; Kowloon- the shopping and backpacker’s hub; the New Territories- with diverse landscapes; and the Outlying Islands.
