Hong Kong (Hongkong)

Hong Kong, the entrepreneurial, irresistible and unique trading city, offers a broad variety of memorable tourist attractions within its compact area. Hong Kong is comprised of four main areas: Hong Kong Island with its beautiful white beaches, Kowloon with its many restaurants, shops and bars and a very international flair, the New Territories and the Outlying Islands, which offer great options for day-trips.

China - Hong Kong - Skyline

Kowloon is home to the famous 1881 Heritage, featuring a shopping mall, a heritage hotel, and an exhibition hall. Tung Choi Street is a great place to shop for women, whereas the Temple Street caters to men by selling mainly men’s suits and watches. Kowloon is where the action is, especially at night – hundreds of bars, clubs and the greatest assets of Hong Kong compel people to come from all over the world to admire it and have fun.

China - Hong Kong - 2 International Finance Centre

Ocean Park, an amusement park and entertainment center, with its fun rides and rollercoaster and its very unique jelly fish aquarium, fills people with excitement. Hollywood Road and Upper Lascar Row aka Cat Street are must-see stops for picking up eclectic souvenirs and gifts. Since you can buy everything you could possible desire, it is a treat for shop-a-holics. The world’s only full-sized replica of Noah’s Ark at Ma Wan Park is another must-see attraction.

In addition, the City Art Square has excellent art displays, which include original and unique sculptures and public art installations. The Hong Kong Disneyland Resort, with its four themed lands, Main Street U.S.A., Fantasyland, Adventureland and Tomorrowland, along with two Disney-style hotels, provides an unparalleled forever-young sense of adventure. Hikers, birders, climbers vouch for the Hong Kong countryside for its beauty, facilities and accessibility.

Hong Kong’s subtropical climate results in hot and humid summers, whereas the winters can be quite cold and cloudy but dry. Keep in mind that from September to November the risk of heavy rain or monsoons is quite high. The best time to travel to Hong Kong is in early spring or late autumn, when temperatures are pleasant.
