More About Hong Kong
From its humble beginnings as a small fishing community frequented by travellers and pirates, Hong Kong grew into one of East Asia's most prominent centres of trade, manufacturing and finance, as well as being a major player in the film industry and one of the most popular tour destinations on the planet.
Setting foot on Hong Kong soil is to tread into a world where cultures collide and find a fascinating, harmonious balance.
Like no other tour destination, Hong Kong, one of the two administrative regions of China, not only blends Eastern culture with Western, but also antiquity with modernity:
- colonial buildings and Chinese temples share the skyline with lustrous skyscrapers and traditional bamboo and tin huts fringe the shorelines;
- market stalls on the bustling streets vie for business with colossal, ultra-modern supermarket complexes;
- Western pubs and some of the best Chinese and international restaurants in the world are to be found in close proximity to one another;
- and the 160 year-old Star Ferry and the century-old Peak Tram are viable travel alternatives if one of the multitude of taxis or the futuristic railway doesn't suit.
