Hong Kong for travelers

Discover Hong Kong’s rich vibrant culture which embraces both its Chinese roots and colonial connections. Apart from the city view of impressive skyscrapers, there are places in Hong Kong where you can enjoy the natural scenery in a higher, greener and more spacious area. Hong Kong is well known for being a food paradise where you may enjoy both local Hong Kong food and global cuisines.

Hong Kong has a sub-tropical climate. The summer can be fairly hot around 30 degrees, but you need not be worried and you can enjoy the cool summer breeze with buildings fully air-conned.

Hong Kong has a sophisticated and well-developed transportation system. Transportation fares in Hong Kong are cheap and easily accessible. Commuting in Hong Kong is convenient and fast especially via the Mass Transit Railway (MTR) system. The MTR system can efficiently bring you to nearly all the different places in Hong Kong. Furthermore, comfortable accommodation for travelers in Hong Kong is largely affordable.

Hong Kong is also well known for its beautiful skyline and night views. We also have some historical monuments that are representative of Chinese culture, which are worthwhile visiting.

Please find below some interesting places for sightseeing:
