Reasons to go to Hong Kong

1Ride the last Duk Ling
Ride the last Duk Ling

If you think Hong Kong is just about shopping, think again. This vibrant cosmopolis is a fusion of many cultures. Explore great attractions like the Man Mo Temples and Po Lin Monastery. Board an authentic Chinese junk and set sail into Hong Kong's scenic harbour for a 360-degree view of the city's impressive skyline.

HolidayIQ reviewer Saranya says, "It was a four-day trip and we covered Tian Tan Buddha (big Buddha), cable car ride, ferry ride (Duk Ling tour), lights and sound show, Peak Tram tour, Victoria point, Ocean Park, Disney Land and lots and lots of shopping especially toy shopping. Toddlers and little boys would enjoy the city as it's kid friendly."

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 - The Cosmopolitan

Hong Kong is a very beautiful country, with proper management and discipline everywhere. It has a cultural mix of both the worlds, West & East.

When you visit Hong Kong, don't forget to travel by The Peak Tram to the Peak Tower at the top of the hill, from here you can see the entire city landscape. And believe me its so beautiful to see all buildings and ocean below you.

You can go to Tsim Sha Tsui for local shopping, and there are very huge and beautiful malls too. One of my favorite mall is Elements mall in Kowloon island.

It's advisable to keep a umbrella with you all the time, because rain can happen anytime in Hong Kong. I took a ferry ride, and used public transport everywhere.

Public transport like bus, MTR (Metro train) are so good in condition, you will love it.

You will find sea food, thai food everywhere. If you don't like such dishes, then I would advise you to carry your own meal everyday from hotel or eat fruits, drink cola only. Hope you have a wonderful stay.

  • Hong Kong - The Cosmopolitan

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.
