Hong Kong features bright lights, bustling urban areas and one of the world’s most recognisable skylines. There is plenty of tradition and history to discover, alongside fabulous shopping, dining and nightlife.
Whether you stay on the Kowloon Peninsula or Hong Kong Island, it’s cheap, easy and fast to get between the two and around Hong Kong, use the Star Ferry, the Mass Transit Railway, buses, taxis, and your feet, helped along considerably in Central District by the world’s longest escalator. Shopping is a major pastime here, from bargain markets to posh department stores.
There’s also the world’s newest Disneyland, and the nightlife features everything from quiet bars to state-of-the-art dance clubs. Full of unexpected sights of traditional culture mixed with twenty first century commercialism, Hong Kong is an exhilarating and fascinating destination. Popular as a standalone city break, Hong Kong also combines very well with a beach stay in Phuket, Koh Samui or Penang, or make it your stop en-route to Vietnam for superb shopping opportunities.
