Love your skyscrapers? Dig fantasia light shows? Can’t get enough of Cantonese chow? Better get your butt to Hong Kong. 

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.
