In Hong Kong, you will find a bustling metropolis endowed with natural beauty; a city where rich Chinese tradition co-exists with cutting-edge global trends; a place where the ancient and modern live side by side. Here, a quick stroll takes you from a traditional street market to a fragrant temple via a state-of-the-art mall. A short ride transports you from towering skyscrapers to unspoilt panoramas of sand and sea. A morning spent hunting for antique watches can be followed by an afternoon hiking on an uninhabited island and capped off with an evening sampling the latest trends in international gastronomy.
Culture, shopping, dining, arts, nature , nightlife … best of all, it’s in Hong Kong!
Exploring the great outdoors might not be the first thing that comes to mind when planning a trip to Hong Kong. After all, it’s just a big city, right? Not exactly! Most of Hong Kong’s land area is rural. Not only that, it’s gorgeously rural with winding mountain trails, spectacular coastal views, remote beaches, charming villages, serene islands, lush woodlands and more. And all of this is within a surprisingly short distance of the downtown. So, when you visit, don’t get so distracted by the urban charms that you forget to discover the real wild side of Hong Kong.
