Hong Kong

Dubbed the ‘City of Life’, Hong Kong is a true gem of Asia – a fusion of ancient and modern, natural beauty and urban bustle, mysticism and cosmopolitan flair. While this pulsing urban metropolis may bring to mind a slew of glittering skyscrapers, there is certainly no shortage of natural wonders to keep the outdoorsy traveller occupied. In fact mountains and sprawling country parks encompass over 70% of Hong Kong. Less energetic travellers can enjoy visiting the flurry of fascinating museums, or shopping at the many chic side-street boutiques, antique stores, gadget bazaars, or cheap and cheerful markets where you can haggle to your heart’s content. Bustling and often crowded, this world-class modern city offers a plethora of fabulous food, vibrant nightlife and unrivalled shopping, all set amid an exquisite visual and cultural backdrop.
