Whether you are a culture-seeker, history-enthusiast, a shopaholic, adventurer, or a foodie, you’ll be pleased to find that this vibrant cosmopolitan city is densely packed with all you desire.
Hong Kong is steeped in history, with a unique identity of its own, lovingly known as the Hongkongese culture. Its diversity is stemmed from its Cantonese background which compliments its British colonial past.
Its diversity can also be tasted in its host of spectacular cuisines, from yummy cheap street-side eats to hole-in-the-wall dim sum restaurants, as well as top-rated international fare. It’s no wonder they say you should always visit Hong Kong with an empty stomach.
And don’t expect to leave Hong Kong empty-handed either, because its shopping options are truly aplenty. A retail haven, it boasts massive shopping malls offering luxury brands, sprawling markets bursting at seams with knick-knacks, and the occasional stand-alone store selling handicrafts and collectibles.
There are also lots of temples, museums, exhibitions, hiking trails, beaches, natural parks, and themed attractions begging to be explored. You’d wish there were more hours in a day.
After sunset, Hong Kong lights up in psychedelic colors as its trademark neon signboards take over the streets and a sea of locals eat and drink into the night. In the city that never sleeps, you’re bound to create the best memories that you won’t soon forget.
