Soaring towards the heavens, the imposing Hong Kong skyline rivals Shanghai and New York as one of the most impressive and iconic in the world.
Hong Kong's dramatic cityscape stretches high above the stunning Victoria Harbour, a glittering urban jungle of glass, steel, and neon set against a majestic mountain backdrop. The inimitable fusion of east-meets-west, British colonialism merged with 21st century China, creates a uniquely fascinating destination. Possessed of an electrifying vitality, this is indisputably one of Asia's greatest metropolises. Filled with a rich cultural heritage and unequalled shopping, dining, entertainment, and sightseeing opportunities, it's surely one of the most sublime city break experiences imaginable.
Situated on the south-east coast of China, the city-state of Hong Kong encompasses four main areas – Hong Kong Island, Kowloon Peninsula, the New Territories, and the outlying islands. The north of Hong Kong Island houses the city's famous skyline, its core urban areas, and its thriving, ambitious economic and cultural heart. One of the most densely populated areas in the world, its fast-paced lifestyle and over-abundance of high-rises contrast heavily with the beautiful views and idyllic hiking trails found in the New Territories, and the Hawaii-esque shores and hidden islands found to the south of the city.
As one of Asia's truly great cities, there's a never-ending list of excursions and attractions to keep travellers occupied. Immerse yourself in the mysterious culture of the Orient with a visit to one of the numerous awe-inspiring shrines or temples, or step back in time with a ferry ride to Cheung Chau, where residents follow a traditional, non-motorised way of life. For the most incredible views, stroll along the harbour's spectacular Central Promenade, or hop on the Observation Wheel to see the unforgettable sights of the city lighting up at dusk.
