Hong Kong, also known as “Asia’s World City”, combines East and West, ancient and modern, and makes for a fascinating visit. The legacy of British colonialists is noticeable in the surprising number of people who speak good English here, as well as in the Western street names and availability of Western food. These features make it easy for English-speakers and other Westerners to touch base with Chinese culture – because, although Hong Kong is in many ways separate from the rest of China, with its own set of laws and own currency, the old Chinese traditions and modern Chinese culture are felt strongly here too.
Hong Kong is a major urban centre and a densely populated hub of economic activity, with cultured and educated inhabitants. And it is certainly a modern city: look no further than the skyline, studded with the tops of skyscraper after skyscraper.
But Hong Kong is more than its shopping centres, lively districts of bars and clubs, art galleries and museums; it also boasts large green parks and secluded beaches. In fact, you’re never too far from the quiet of the countryside which can provide a welcome contrast to the chaotic excitement of somewhere like the street markets of Mong Kok, which, according to the Guinness Book of Records, is the most densely populated district in the world.
On the mainland is Kowloon, where you can get acquainted with Chinese art, old and new, at the Hong Kong Museum of Art; or else head down to the bustling shopping district of Tsim Sha Tsui where you can also enjoy amazing panoramic views of Hong Kong Island's skyline.
When you're ready to move on, take the Star Ferry to Hong Kong Island. Have a ride on the world’s longest escalator system into the trendy Soho district and browse the antique shops, before checking out the party scene in the Lan Kwai Fong district.
The surrounding countryside is graced with a large number of country parks, which make for great day trips. There are also traditional towns that offer a stark contrast to the metropolitan areas. The fishing town of Sai Kung is a great place to sample some local seafood after a long day of excursions.
The public transport system in Hong Kong is very reasonably priced and extremely user-friendly. Take your pick of double-decker buses, slow but cheap trams, buses and the MTR metro service.
