Hong Kong has an intoxicating, bustling energy all of its own. Once evocatively known as ‘Fragrant Harbour’ you can’t help but be swept up in its unique heritage, traditions, cultural delights and east-meets-west atmosphere - where the ultra-modern is infused with vivid dashes of the colourful Orient.
This dazzling metropolis with skyscrapers and glittering retail havens gives way to the heights and tropical greenery of Victoria Peak, where the setting and architecture recall the island’s colonial past.
Surely one of the best cities in the world to experience, it stands up well for several returns as the true appeal of Hong Kong is it’s constantly evolving, there’s always something new to catch your eye.
Live the Dream...
If shopping for designer merchandise is your passion, head for the luxury malls of Landmark and Harbour City. Alternatively immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of Hong Kong’s street market scene and enjoy a haggle with a street hawker.
Food is a big draw for visitors and it is possible to indulge in every cuisine from any region of China and the Orient, to internationally renowned Michelin starred fare at Nobu, Gagnaire, Robuchon and Kunz.
To see the city from on high, take a helicopter tour and drink it all in. For vintage modes of travel, take a trip across the harbour past the distinctive junks on the Star Ferry, or a tram ride up to the island’s highest point, Victoria Peak.
Beyond Hong Kong there is more to explore on the Kowloon side, with the history and the beauty of the New Territories, outlying islands Lantau & Lamma and across the Pearl River delta to former Portuguese enclave Macau.
