|Victoria Harbour |
It is made up of four parts: Hong Kong Island, Kowloon Peninsula, the New Territories and the Outlying Islands. The prosperous island is the center of economy, politics, entertainment and shopping with its southern part noted for sea shores and bays. Kowloon is another flourishing part where Tsim Sha Tsui, Yau Ma Tei and Mong Kok are the most popular destinations. The New Territories and Outlying Islands are ideal places to experience a peaceful and natural holiday.
The city has a population of about 6,970,000 and most people (about 97% of the population) are Chinese and speak Cantonese and English. There are few language barriers, making the city one of the hottest travel destination in Asia.
Due to the advantageous geographical location, Hong Kong serves as an important transport hub between international cities and regions with major cities in Mainland China. The well-developed urban transport system can be used to most places in the city, making traveling convenient and cheap.
Different cultures bring food all over the world to this city, so it is a paradise for foodies. From luxury restaurants to Dai Pai Dong (street side food-stalls), from Yum Cha (tea and dim sum) to formal feast, the local food will definitely seize your appetite.
Once arrival in Hong Kong, shopping is inevitable, because this metropolis is a commercial center of Asia. The Central, Causeway Bay and Wan Chai on the Island as well as Tsim Sha Tsui, Yau Ma Tei and Mong Kok on Kowloon Peninsula are the most popular shopping areas.
After a busy day of traveling, it is highly recommended to appreciate the colorful nightlife. Leisurely sightseeing activities such as watching a Symphony of Lights and roaming around the Avenue of Stars, or heading for pubs or nightclubs at Lan Kwai Fong, or eating local snacks at night markets will enrich your trip.
An open city with a wonderful natural harbor, it is a place where various cultures blend harmoniously. British culture can be found everywhere as a result of former colonial rule, while it also preserves traditional customs and the core values of Confucianism that have faded in Mainland China. It is the backdrop for modern movies and pop music that enjoy worldwide recognition.
