With its dramatic skyline and packed, bustling sidewalks, Hong Kong really has to be seen to be believed. In between the giant skyscrapers and designer shops you’ll find traditional temples filled with incense and locals practising tai chi at dawn. Busy food stalls will tempt you with the smell of wonderful fresh food and the neon lights hanging above the streets, will remind you that this cosmopolitan city is open 24/7.
On a trip to Hong Kong, there’s no better place to start than in the centre of the city. Head to Causeway Bay to shop ‘til you drop, or visit Causeway Bay to take a walk around Victoria Park or visit the traditional Noonday Gun where a cannon is fired at midday. Don’t miss a trip to The Peak, one of the best places to view Hong Kong’s iconic skyline.
If there’s one thing that Hong Kong does well, it’s food and drink. From busy street stalls serving fresh, local food to classy rooftop bars overlooking the city, there’s no shortage of places to dine and drink in this city. One food you must try in Hong Kong is Dim Sum – served in small steamer baskets, these bite-sized nibbles are often sold from 5am in the morning right through to very late evening.
