With its stunning harbour, rich culture and many attractions, a visit to Hong Kong will live on in the memory long after you have returned home.
The island skyline has more skyscrapers than any other city and the view from the top of Victoria Peak, the costliest neighbourhood in this former British Colony, is breathtaking. Most Hong Kong flights arrive at the International Airport (HKG) where a special express train can take you to the city centre in less than half an hour.
Whether you visit Hong Kong for a few days or a few weeks, you'll never run out of things to do. Tung Choi Street, better known as Ladies' Market and Stanley Market are both great places to find local handicrafts while Western Market, Hollywood Road and St John's Cathedral are all worth seeing for their stunning architecture. If you love seafood, don't miss the many restaurants of Aberdeen on the south shore of the main island.
For children of all ages, a visit to Ocean Park or the Hong Kong Disneyland on Lantau Island is a must. Lantau is also home to Lo Pin monastery which sits beneath the 34 metre higher giant Tian Tan Budda while at Ocean Park you can take a cable car ride and enjoy views of Repulse Bay and Middle Island.
If you want to learn more about the past, make time for a visit to the Museum of History in Kowloon. If you are more of an art lover, you'll find works in abundance at the Museum of Art. Shopaholics should head straight for the main thoroughfare, Nathan Road.
For a fun night out between September and June, try the Happy Valley racecourse. If you have a car, this is a great time to head out to explore the new territories.
