Hong Kong - Travel Information
This vibrant, exciting city offers something for everyone as a destination in itself or as a great stopover city en route to/from another Asian country.
When the British Crown Colony of Hong Kong returned to Chinese rule at midnight on June 30, 1997, the change of flag has only added to the uniqueness of this remarkable territory: no other land has changed sovereignty in such a manner before. And whatever the future holds, the territory's charm and almost hypnotic attraction will always remain.
Hong Kong had long been a trading centre linked with global activities, as an entry port and a meeting-place for the exchange of information, especially on the Pacific trade. The very earliest of the "hongs", the great British trading companies, developed Hong Kong as a nerve centre; and with the decline of Shanghai after the Second World War, Hong Kong became the window of China.
A proverbial melting pot where Chinese from many regions mix with people from every corner of the globe, Hong Kong is everything: new, familiar, exotic. Tall high-rise buildings are a backdrop for the traditional junks in the harbour and after dark the city glitters with entertainment spots, restaurants, theatres and nightclubs.
Hong Kong can cater for your every desire. Discover the myriad things to see and do in one of the most diverse and exciting destinations in the world. Enjoy fantastic shopping and sightseeing, cruise the Hong Kong harbour, and experience the Symphony of Lights, a spectacular evening light show. Visit Victoria Peak (1,300 feet above sea level) for a panoramic view of the city and outlying islands, the splendid beaches of the Repulse Bay Beach, the district of Aberdeen, famous for its floating restaurants and fishing village, where hundreds of people live aboard junks and sampans, and the Stanley Market with super shopping bargains.
Hong Kong…it's all yours to discover.
