About Hong Kong
Steamy and gargantuan, Hong Kong has evolved into one of
Asia’s most lovable cities. Its incredible skyline – part neon, part
steel-and-glass, part towering hills – is one of the most majestic in
the world, but it’s a mere backdrop to the 24-hour flurry of activity
that makes Hong Kong what it is.
From its boat-buzzed waterfront to its packed dim sum restaurants, its
incense-smoked temples to its clattering teahouses, its street markets
to its old-world hotels, Hong Kong is a destination teeming with
energy. For travellers, the best advice is to go with the flow.
Situated at the mouth of the Pearl River Delta on China’s southwestern
coast, Hong Kong is a city that has a remarkable mix of Eastern and
Western influences. The handover of this territory from Britain to
China was back in 1997, but the centuries of British rule still have a
lasting legacy, tangible in everything from the grand period
architecture to the local passion for horse-racing.
Even the name of Hong Kong’s centrepiece – the iconic Victoria Harbour
– harks back to another era, and today there’s an international
flavour to the destination that sets it apart from other Chinese
cities. The gastronomy, nightlife and shopping are all world-class.
Hong Kong Island, with its glistening skyscrapers and high-end
shopping malls, is in many ways the heartbeat of the city. Get down to
street level, however, and the laneways, wet markets and traditional
Chinese haunts are a reminder that beyond the city lies a working
class populace still making ends meet the old fashioned way – and
often the hard way.
It’s also worth remembering, of course, that there’s far more to Hong
Kong than the city itself. Its natural attractions include
hiker-friendly ranges, volcanic landscapes, pristine woodlands, sleepy
islands, protected marine parks and miles of golden beaches.
