Holidays to Hong Kong

Hong Kong is a blend of the traditional and modern China, where ancient temples stand next to tall skyscrapers, and paper lanterns compete with neon signs. The island’s history has created a tangible feeling of east meets west here. Visitors on holidays to Hong Kong will find Chinese cultural roots, religious influences and the remains of British colonial administration all around the city.

Hong Kong has an amazing array of tourist attractions for all to enjoy. The most wondrous sights are Victoria Harbour where you can take the Star Ferry and travel around the bay, the Giant Buddha which is the world's tallest outdoor, seated, bronze Buddha and, of course, The Peak where you can see the most spectacular views over the harbour, city, green countryside and mountains further afield.

Those on holidays in Hong Kong will never be bored as there are so many things to see and do. Hong Kong covers over 1,000 sq km and over 70% of this is rural area, complete with green, rolling hills and the craggy mountains. It is impossible to visit Hong Kong and not experience the tranquillity and wondrous beauty of the natural landscape. If hiking and trekking is too much for you, then take a ferry and explore the outlying islands or take a cruise across to the Golden Bauhinia Square and the special Flag Raising Ceremony.

Hong Kong is considered to be the ‘events capital’ of Asia and hosts a great number of exciting local festivals and world-class sports and art events. There are plenty of theatres and concert halls with famous international artists performing in them and, of course, performances by local artists too. If you are going to the theatre or a concert what better way to travel than the iconic tram that will take you to many of Hong Kong's most wonderful areas.

For those travellers on holidays in Hong Kong who are interested in the very colourful history of the area, a visit to one of the many museums is a must. Hong Kong's museums cover a wide range of subjects from film, medical science, art, history and heritage to a museum dedicated to the Chinese revolutionary Dr Sun Yat-sen.

Shopping in Hong Kong is a truly magical experience. Tourists on Hong Kong holidays can shop at the glamorous shopping centres or the wonderfully fragrant street markets; there are also plenty of quality boutiques selling trendy, designer items. There is no better place to purchase your favourite electronic gadget. After you have finished shopping you can relax and enjoy a meal at one of the 11,000 restaurants that you will find in the culinary capital of Asia. With all those restaurants you are sure to find something to suit your taste and pocket.
