Reasons to go to Hong Kong

1Ever been flightseeing?
Ever been flightseeing?

Heliservices of Hong Kong allows you flightseeing. Fly over the variant vistas of Hong Kong with your partner. Tai Long Wan, one of Hong Kong's most easterly beaches is very romantic where you can surf and ahem... get some solitude. Sailing out to some of the more remote islands and beaches is also a great option. 

HolidayIQ reviewer Prerna shares, “The city area can be covered well in 2 days. Start with the Bank of China Tower, Bank complex, St John's cathedral. Proceed to Victoria Peak to enjoy a bird's eye view of the city, see the Madam Tussaud's museum and head to Stanley Market.

On the last day, we turned to lesser-known tourist sites. We went to Golden Bauhinia Square, historic importance with a flag-hoisting ceremony. Close to the square was Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, hosting various fairs. We witnessed an interesting fair which had stalls depicting the history of China and snippets of the Chinese tradition.

Thereafter, we moved to buy inexpensive electronics and souvenirs. Stanley street has a great electronics shopping centre. We also strolled to the neighbouring street market with stalls of Chinese dry fruits and toffees, souvenirs, gift items, and clothes.

By the end of this holiday, I could not point out only one most interesting aspect of Hong Kong: spiritual experience of monasteries, adventures of Disneyland or the freshness of Macau.

Efficient, Clean, Expensive, Fairly Smoke Free

Great place to be. I was there for Business for 10 Days . Efficient people, Clean city, Decent nightlife, pretty safe at all hours If I go back this time, I would:. #Buy an Octopus Card the moment I step out. It is practically accepted at all large and small Merchants. (Except the Local Red Toyota Taxi's). (Available at all Public Locations like Rail Station], Airports[Did't personally check though]) - It's a prepaid card that cost's minimum 150HKD (50HKD Deposit Included). #For Vegetarians - Pizza Hut's - Margherita Pizza (Think crust worked best for me). #Learn Directions in Cantanese (Left, Right, Forward, Reverse, Up & Down etc. ). #Carry a portable Umbrella or a Water repellant Body Bag (It drizzles out of the blue). #Tram, MTR & Double Decker Bus's are the best and cheapest methods of Commute. Avowing Smoking. Or smoke in the Smoking areas or Places like LKF with a lot of bars

Hong Kong Overview

Isolated from the mainland of the People's Republic of China by a natural harbour, mountains and a century of British rule, the city of Hong Kong is situated in the Far East, south of the Tropic of Cancer.

Hong Kong comprises of an area of 1097 square kilometres and is 8 hours ahead of the Greenwich Mean Time. A lively and industrialised city, Hong Kong presents a cultural resemblance to that of the Guangdong province of China. A blend of Chinese, Vietnamese and other Asian cultures, Hong Kong is a place to appreciate Asian culture at its best.

English is often spoken and understood in most restaurants, hotels and shops. Being under the British rule for a prolonged period as well as a popular tourist destination and important business centre, various signs, brochures and guidebooks are designed in English rather than Chinese.

However both Chinese and English happen to be the official languages with Cantonese dominating. The major religions are Confucianism, Buddhism and Taoism.

Hong Kong’s therapeutic foot massages are quite popular with travellers. Another typical Hong Kong characteristic is the bamboo scaffolding in old and new construction sites. The city is also famous for its delicious spread of traditional cuisine.

Hong Kong is a visitor's paradise. With great attractions like the Man Mo Temples and Po Lin Monastery, luxurious accommodations, shops, food and fun filled activities, there is no dearth of excitement for travellers in Hong Kong.

The city is friendly and hospitable with an equally suitable climate. Hong Kong is a beautiful and adventurous city with a peaceful ambience and rich cultural heritage.
