Few places on the planet offer such a diversity of culture, cuisine, sights and sounds, and in such as a small space as Hong Kong (the city comprises Hong Kong Island and across the harbour, Kowloon). Seamlessly fusing east and west, it is arguably the world’s most fast-paced and dynamic city, where Chinese tradition combines with the relics of colonial rule to create an exciting and eclectic environment. Infused with a unique sense of vibrancy, highly sophisticated infrastructure and award-winning architecture are served up alongside the hallmarks of an ancient civilisation.
For the foodies among you, Hong Kong has it all. With over 11,000 restaurants you can eat out three times a day for ten years and never eat at the same place twice. From over sixty Michelin starred restaurants to tiny local eateries serving a myriad of gastronomic delights, or restaurants with romantic views over the famous harbour – you’re spoilt for choice in every direction. And come sunset, Hong Kong takes on a whole new persona with lively roof top bars and seriously chic nightclubs.
If Hong Kong’s busy streets and bustling markets aren’t for you, or you simply fancy a little escape from it all, relax – 70% of the city is lush greenery, and 40% of that is protected. Why not hire a boat and head off to one of the 260-plus outlying islands, many of which are uninhabited while others have small villages where life is a world away from the metropolis.
Whether it’s rambling, kayaking, water-skiing or wake boarding, Hong Kong will satiate your sense of adventure. Its 430 square miles of coastline boasts a rich array of beaches, coves, bays, cliffs, sea caves and nature trails – all just waiting to be explored. And Victoria Peak, the highest point on Hong Kong Island, is the perfect place to take in all of its breathtaking beauty, which stretches as far as the green hills of the New Territories. If the walk up the Peak sounds a little strenuous (especially in the humidity), take the Peak Tram – the views are out of this world.
Hong Kong just wouldn’t be the same without its famed Star Ferry. She’s been faithfully carrying passengers from Hong Kong Island to Kowloon and back since 1888. National Geographic even rates the Star Ferry crossing as one of the 50 ‘places of a lifetime’. We definitely suggest her starring in your Hong Kong itinerary.
Why not meet with a local to get an authentic insight into the city. ‘Hong Kong Pals’ are specially selected volunteers eager to share their passion and enthusiasm for Hong Kong. You’ll be armed with insider knowledge, personal recommendations and top tips – and the programme is free of charge.
Worlds collide in Old Town Central, where past meets present, tradition meets technology, and thrills meet tranquillity. A choice of five self-guided walks will take you on a journey like no other, from history and food to arts and culture. As a microcosm of the city itself, it's the perfect place to discover the heart of Hong Kong.
You can’t visit Hong Kong without soaking up the sights, smells and sounds of its street market life. Can you? If you’ve a few hours to spare, make your way to the Mong Kok District in Kowloon. With a buzzing atmosphere day and night Mong Kok and its many stalls of clothing, accessories and souvenirs is the place to hone your haggling skills and bag a bargain or two.
Becoming increasingly known for its plethora of cool bars and chic restaurants, Kennedy Town is the perfect place to enjoy a meal away from the city’s hustle and bustle.
