Where old meets new
Holidays in Hong Kong take you to a thriving metropolis which is full of unique experiences. The city combines traditional museums and sights with a modern culture and a stunning skyline full of skyscrapers. Wander along the streets and you’ll find lively local markets rubbing shoulders with Michelin starred restaurants. Most of the luxury hotels and restaurants exist at sky level, where you can take in the iconic skyline, busy harbour, or the golden sandy beaches of the city.
If you want to be in the heart of the action, choose to stay on Hong Kong Island. There are hundreds of skyscrapers, filled with designer shops, and fashionable Japanese brands, as well as fine dining restaurants and luxury hotels. Escape the busy main streets and head to Hong Kong’s luscious main park or spend the day on the golden sandy beaches where you’ll find some of the best surfing in Asia. Alternatively, for a taste of the quirkier side of Hong Kong, head to Kowloon. Here you’ll find a blend of Asian cuisines, a night market, and even fortune tellers.
Hong Kong is one of China’s most celebrated destinations. It offers a blend of old and new, local and international, luxury and down to earth, and natural and man-made. Visit the beach and spend your days relaxing, try watersports and boat trips, or spend a day in the park and visit the aviary, tea plantation museum, and pretty gardens. Head into the bustling city streets and stop off in Michelin starred restaurants or designer shops, or watch the local residents haggle for delicacies in the open air markets.
