Experience Hong Kong, China

Experience Hong Kong, China

story by: Inspire Hong Kong & China

Hong Kong is literally a living fusion of traditional Eastern and Western cultures. It’s fast paced with a dazzling array of high rise buildings, neon lights and billboards. Split into two by the harbour, Hong Kong has two main regions – Kowloon and Hong Kong Island.

The Island is the economic heart of the city and home to the lively waterfront locations of Causeway Bay, Central and Wan Chai. In contrast Kowloon’s heart is the famous Nathan Road and its ‘Golden Mile’. Stretching for miles it’s packed with enormous shopping complexes, hotels, markets and bargains galore. While she feels like a cosmopolitan city, under her contemporary exterior is a traditional Chinese lady at heart. Peer down from Victoria Peak, wind your way through the streets of Mongkok and sample unusual dishes at the floating restaurants in Aberdeen. Markets are definitely a bonus for any visitor to Hong Kong, notably the ladies market and without a doubt the harbour is the centrepiece, with its dazzling skyline and nightly ‘Symphony of the Lights’ fireworks and laser light extravaganza.

There are so many exciting things to do in Hong Kong that you'll be spoilt for choice - here are some of our favourites;

Symphony of Lights
Watch these from the Sky Bar at the top of the Sheraton Hotel & Towers where you can enjoy a drink and the fireworks synchronised to music in style.

Hong Kong Island
The economic centre, home to large scale shopping malls, the famous Stanley Markets and the entertainment districts of Lan Kwai Fong and SoHo.

Kowloon’s Nathan Road
Along with its famous Golden Mile, this is a shopper’s paradise. Packed with enormous shopping complexes, hotels and local markets, you’ll need to pack light or purchase another suitcase for all the bargains you’ll find here.

High Tea
Relive the glamorous colonial past with High Tea at the Peninsula Hotel Hong Kong.

Catch the tram up to the peak
Enjoy this classic Hong Kong tradition and enjoy some of the best views across the city. Try to sit on the right hand side for the best views on the way up on this restored funicular railway.

Hullet House
Dine at the prized Loong Toh Yuen Cantonese restaurant. The highly acclaimed chef scours the street markets for new tastes and ingredients, adding his own contemporary interpretation to Cantonese cuisine. Throughout Hullet House you will find many design examples of the blend between Hong Kong’s vibrant culture and the Chinoiserie style amongst four beautifully designed dining areas. Be sure to make a booking.

Giant Buddha
No trip to Hong Kong would be complete without a visit to the Giant Buddha which sits serenely atop Ngong Ping plateau amid the spectacular mountain scenery of Lantau Island. Climb more than 200 steps to reach the platform where the Buddha is seated. A fun way to reach this area is by taking the Ngong Ping 360 cableway from Tung Chung to the culturally themed village.
