Asia’s World City!
The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China is a place with multiple personalities, as a result of being both Cantonese Chinese and under a long-time British influence. It is a unique destination that has absorbed people and cultural influences from places as diverse as Vietnam and Vancouver and proudly proclaims itself to be “Asia’s World City”.
Hong Kong is much more than a harbour city. Known for its spectacular skyline, Hong Kong’s territory with its cloudy mountains and rocky islands, surprises by being mostly a rural landscape.
The country has an incredibly rich cultural heritage which is expressed in its people’s many festivals throughout the year. There also is a vibrant entertainment industry, which has brought forward many world famous singers and actors, such as Jackie Chan and Bruce Lee.

Cuisine plays an important part in many people’s lives in Hong Kong. It is a showcase of Chinese cuisines with huge regional varieties, and is often referred to as being the culinary capital of Asia. When visiting Hong Kong, one should definitely try out the most famous Cantonese dishes of all, Dim Sum.
Boasting one of the world’s best airports, it is the ideal stopover for those who wish to travel deeper into the Orient. A nearby short-stay visit could be Macao with its rich Portuguese heritage and giant casinos.
Whether you visit Asia’s World City for its great entertainment, delicious Cantonese cuisine, a trip with your family to Disneyland, limitless shopping, or fantastic view over the infamous Victoria Harbour, you will certainly have an exciting stay in Hong Kong.
