A big city with overwhelming bright lights and bustling urban areas, Hong Kong is huge on entertainment, heritage, retail therapy and dining. The skyscrapers of modern Hong Kong sit cheek by jowl with old Chinese markets while sampans and junks bob around in the harbour. Full of unexpected sights of traditional culture mixed with twenty first century commercialism, the handover to China in 1997 has made little difference to the city and it is as exciting now as it ever was.
