About Hong Kong

Situated on China’s south coast and enclosed by the Pearl River Delta and South China Sea, Hong Kong is renowned for its expansive skyline and deep natural harbor. Hong Kong is a recognized ‘global centre of trade’, and an ‘entertainment hub’.[1]

Hong Kong is frequently described as a place where “East meets West”, reflecting the culture’s mix of the territory’s Chinese roots with influences from its time as a British colony. Hong Kong balances a modernized way of life with traditional Chinese practices. The fusion of east and west also characterizes Hong Kong’s cuisine, where dim sum, hot pot, and fast food restaurants coexist with haute cuisine.[1]

Hong Kong offers a host of memorable tourist attractions within its compact area, with The Peak, Victoria Harbor and the Giant Buddha among the most awe-inspiring. You’ll be amazed by the diverse contrasts and close proximity of stunning cityscapes and soaring mountains, heritage sites and extensive green countryside.[2]
