Luxury Hong Kong Holidays
Futuristic light shows, steaming pots of dim sum, tai chi sessions in city parks - welcome to Hong Kong. At first glance, you might think this city is all about skyscrapers and modern malls. But look closer and you'll find everything from sandy beaches and country parks, to traditional street markets and pin-drop peaceful temples.
Most people use Hong Kong as a stopover before a beach holiday, but there's enough here to keep you busy for weeks. Most of the action centres around Victoria Harbour, which has Kowloon on one side and Hong Kong Island on the other. A Star Ferry trip across the water is a great way to get a feel for the city, and is even more magical at night, when the buildings are lit up for the daily Symphony of Lights show. Look out for junk boats (traditional Chinese fishing vessels), with their distinctive orange sails.
For an aerial view of the city, take the 125-year-old tram up to Victoria Peak, Hong Kong's highest spot. Once you've admired the cityscape, walk the Peak Circle Path for alternative views of Hong Kong. If you're interested in walking and hiking, there are some great trails dotted around - Dragon's Back and The Twins are two of our favourites. More of a beach person? Try Repulse Bay or South Bay Beach, both on the south side of Hong Kong Island.
Back in town, browse for trinkets and souvenirs at the city's street markets. Some of the more popular ones are Ladies Market, Temple Street Market and Stanley Market, but seek out a few specialist spots too, like Flower Market and Jade Market.
Food-wise, Hong Kong offers a little of everything. There's plenty of Chinese food, as you'd expect, but you'll also find Japanese and Vietnamese dishes, plus English touches like champagne-fuelled brunches and high tea served at luxury hotels.
If you've got little ones in tow, make sure you save some time to visit Lantau, Hong Kong's biggest island - it's home to Hong Kong Disneyland.
