Guide to Hong Kong

Hong Kong runs on adrenaline by day and night.  It is a buzzing modern city, built on culture and tradition.  Visitors will find its energy infectious.

Hong Kong is a fast-moving city.  It runs on the energy of around seven million citizens.  ‘Hong Kongers’ are notoriously hungry for success and hard-working.  During rush hour you’ll see the city’s ambitious commuters crammed into packed buses and trains on the way to work.  It can be chaotic at times, however it is one of the safest cities in the world.

Although a compact city, it is one of the most densely populated.  People live on top of each other and there are many high-rise buildings and skyscrapers  shaping its iconic skyline.  For the best view of the cityscape, head to anvil-shaped The Peak, the island’s highest point in the most exclusive area.  Sky Terrace 428 is the most popular vantage point and a top tourist spot.

With feet back on firm ground, on a walk along the Tsim Sha Promenade to Victoria Harbour, you will pass by big attractions such as the Hong Kong Cultural Centre, the Space Museum, Museum of Art and Avenue of the Stars.  From the Harbour you can appreciate the dramatic architecture around you.

Hong Kong is proud to have provided the set of many Hollywood productions; the Avenue of the Stars pays homage to its film legacy.  Marking over a century of cinema, you’ll see handprints of the famous, commemorative plaques, and even a life-size bronze statue in honour of Bruce Lee.

Hong Kong dazzles day and night.  After dark, take in the atmosphere of the vibrant Temple Street Night Market, a bustling bazaar where Hong Kong’s enterprising sales people and entertainers show their trade and talent.  It is a lively place to shop, eat, drink and people watch.     

Hong Kong was a British colony for 150 years and is now known as a Special Administrative Region (SAR) of China.  Cantonese is the most widely spoken language, followed by English and Mandarin.  English signage is everywhere so it can feel both familiar and foreign to visitors.

Western and Chinese people live together in this busy cosmopolitan ‘world city.’  After work, Hong Kongers love to unwind, usually by eating, drinking and shopping. 

In Hong Kong you can eat any international cuisine, but traditional Cantonese cuisine is full of flavour and creativity.  Dim sum, a must-try dish, is sold and eaten everywhere.  It is a tasty steamed, bite-size, dumpling style foodstuff with normally a savoury filling such as beef, prawn, pork or vegetable.  Seafood, such as prawn and crab, is also hugely popular, and slightly off-piste, Cantonese delicacies include snake, frog and bird’s nest soup ( thought to have health benefits)!  Whatever you consume, get practising with chopsticks as they are de rigueur in Hong Kong.
