About Hong Kong
Hong Kong is a large city found in southeastern China, and is a powerful economic hub and popular stop-off for anyone taking a round-the-world trip. The Cantonese Chinese culture differs in some ways from the Mandarin Chinese culture found throughout much of China, and proclaims itself to be Asia’s World City.
One of the main draws of this bustling world city is the high-paced lifestyle and impressive, towering skylines for which Hong Kong is famous. Hong Kong Island looks over the beautiful Victoria Harbour, which is particularly attractive at night when the entire area is aflame with glittering lights.
The city is known for its incredible shopping, especially in the luxury sectors, and there are many opportunities to sample the delicious cuisine in a range of high end restaurants. There are many guided walks through this often overwhelming city which can give you a good introduction to this amazing destination.
