Asia’s most cosmopolitan city, Hong Kong dazzles with its intoxicating east meets west vibe. This unique destination blends the legacy of British colonialism with ancient Chinese culture and a modern cityscape with quiet corners brimming with age old traditions. Hong Kong as a whole is made up of 237 islands and has a population of 7 million people. The iconic cityscape that we know so well is that of Hong Kong Island – it and Kowloon on the mainland are where most of the action takes place. That said, 70% of Hong Kong is made up of mountains, so it is easy to escape the city and strike out on a walking trail through incredible scenery – there are even walks around Victoria Peak, Hong Kong Island’s top spot.

Behind the skyscrapers, you’ll find both bustling incense-filled temples and a fantastically varied shopping scene, ranging from sparkling malls to packed market stalls. Hong Kong also has a fantastic transport network, which includes trams and ferries, making any explorations easy. And there is plenty of exploring to do – take the funicular up Victoria Peak for spectacular views; head over to Lantau Island to admire the Tian Tan Buddha; enjoy the hustle and bustle of Kowloon; and so much more. We also can’t talk about Hong Kong without mentioning the food. Whether you like to dine under a Michelin star or the starry sky, the range of foods and flavours is simply incredible.
