Hong Kong Holidays

The former British colony has always been an immensely important point of trade – from the 19th-century opium trade to a major financial center today-- Hong Kong has blossomed into an energizing destination for visitors. Even though the harbor city returned to Chinese sovereignty in 1997 as a 'special administrative region,' Hong Kong retains ... Read more
innumerable distinctions -- a separate currency, left-side driving, and a capitalist-friendly economic system. Simply admiring life here in one of the most densely populated regions of the world is a highlight of a visit to Hong Kong -- from floating homes on fishing junks in Aberdeen to the ubiquitous high-rise apartments -- but leave the city center for top attractions, such as Lantau Island's "The Big Buddha", a 250-ton statue of Buddha. Harbor cruises, shopping, and riding the Peak Tram to see Hong Kong from above are also popular things to do. Surprisingly, you'll also discover Hong Kong has some great hiking as well. When you get hungry, look no further than excellent dim sum restaurants like Tim Ho Wan. Street food is also popular and well executed. If you want an extravagant hotel, like The Peninsula Hong Kong, this city will do you right, but dozens of hotels and guesthouses offer no-frills rooms for less.

recommended for a visit if you have a say in the matter). Spring has warm temperatures, but days can often be plagued by fog and drizzle. Late fall is really ideal, with pleasant temperatures and plenty of blue skies. Book well in advance if you are traveling during major Chinese holidays (Chinese New Year, Golden Week) as tourists from the mainland can arrive en masse.

One of the world's great cities, and a nice introduction to Asia with some of the amenities and English spoken as a leftover from its time under British rule. A culture all its own still!

FOOOODDDD, is a must try, clothes and other necessities are all within budget, including food (duh), clothing, skin care, dental and hygeine care, and basically alot of stuffs. While in Hong Kong I suggest to go to night markets, that's where all the good cheap stuff are

Hong Kong is an international foodie delight with wionderful treats from all over the globe and many local favorites to tempt you with. Shopping is still very good for many items including clothing and electronics. Fascinating history and many sites to explore and let's not forget Hong Kong is also home to a Disneyland resort

Hong Kong is a great city with tremendous history and energy. The melting of the old colonial history from British rule mixed with the local Chinese culture is a great introduction to the region for a first time visitor to the region.

Maybe it was the time of year, maybe it's all the time, air pollution is a big problem. The humidity of this city was so unbearable, and I've been to hot cities in Asia. This is a very international and tourist friendly city. With plenty of shopping
