INTRODUCING HONG KONG
Fast becoming one of the world’s luxury destinations with some of the best hotels, Hong Kong is nothing short of exhilarating. Shop in exclusive designer stores, or seek out the peace and tranquility of the city’s Buddhist temples. Unwind at your boutique hotel, or take a night-time river cruise to see the city light up.
A mesmerising metropolis between mountains and sea.
Things to do
Hong Kong’s leading natural landmark is the stunning Victoria Peak. Take a cable car ride up to this mountaintop for panoramic views. The city itself holds plenty of treasures, such as the ornate Man Mo Temple, with its intricate statues and carvings.
Hong Kong is a shoppers’ paradise, with numerous luxury boutiques and fascinating markets to explore. Pick up unique souvenirs from stalls and shops brimming with handmade silk, jade trinkets, antiques and tailor-made clothing. The bright and buzzing Temple Street Night Market is a must-see for the atmosphere alone.
There’s more to Hong Kong than the soaring skyscrapers. Take a private tour out to the wooded mountains and beaches of Hong Kong’s new territories and islands. Or leave land behind on a cruise to spot the region’s distinctive pink dolphins, a protected species.
Horse racing is the most popular sport in Hong Kong. Join the fun with a day at Happy Valley Racecourse, complete with champagne.
