Perfect as a standalone city break destination, or as an exciting stopover, the captivating city of Hong Kong has plenty to offer and is guaranteed to delight. Offering an intoxicating mix of the very old and strikingly new, glittering skyscrapers sit cheek by jowl with the old Chinese markets and junks bobbing in the harbour, and there’s plenty to do. Explore tiny street stalls and smoky temples, experience sweeping views of the city from Victoria Peak, or indulge in some retail therapy and fine dining in high-end boutiques and restaurants.
When you think of Hong Kong you may picture a city of dazzling bright lights and bustling urban areas, but while there is certainly plenty to do to keep visitors entertained, Hong Kong is actually 70% green space, and there are plenty of spaces to refresh and reconnect with nature.
Hong Kong’s laidback outlying islands offer rolling hills, scattered beaches, quaint villages and walking trails, where you can open your senses wide. Gaze back at the city skyline seen from the mountains; listen to waves crashing on remote beaches; savour the taste of local dishes that connect you with Hong Kong’s cultural heritage; take a deep breath and absorb the smells of the forest, or of drying fish and shrimp paste in a traditional village; visit shorelines where you can touch rocks that bear the scars of a volcanic past.
This vibrant city is home to all the best experiences — from cultures ancient and modern to vistas natural and urban, and flavours local and international.
