Why we love Hong Kong (China)
Take the Star Ferry across the Harbour from Kowloon to Hong King Island and ride the steep-track tram to the summit of Mount Victoria: here you’ll overlook one of the world’s great metropolises. Hong Kong is iconic, the epitome of modern Asia, and more than lives up to its fame.
After you’ve feasted on the grand city and harbour views, tuck in to the local cuisine – this is one of the world’s great foodie cities, with a walk around any downtown block revealing a swag of top-notch restaurants, cafes and street vendors. Hong Kong, means ‘fragrant harbour’ and is indeed a place to follow your nose and explore with relish.
The level of violent crime is very low but pick pocketing and other street crime can occur. You should take extra care of passports, credit cards and money in crowded areas and when checking in and out of hotels. There have been some isolated incidents of robberies in Hong Kong’s Country Parks; these incidents have been reduced following a crime prevention operation by the Hong Kong Police. Nevertheless, if you intend to hike in Hong Kong’s Country Parks you should stick to marked trails and avoid carrying valuables.
Hong Kong is a stable society underpinned by the rule of law. Demonstrations are becoming more frequent, but despite the substantial numbers, they have been conducted in a peaceful and orderly manner. You should take sensible precautions against petty crime if you are nearby.
