For centuries a major trading port in Asia, the island of Hong Kong and its neighbouring territories have now become a major tourist destination attracting people from around the globe.
The key thing to do is to look up. No skyline can compare with that of the island. A boat trip around the harbour, especially on the Star ferry is a great way to experience the place, and don’t forget to try the local street food, whether its dim sum, dumplings or noodle soup, you are in for a treat.
The main island is only part of the territory’s attractions, with Kowloon, the New Territories and the many smaller islands all having their own distinct attractions.
The time is GMT / UTC +8. There is daylight saving time.
The island is often decked in cloud. So, if you happen upon some fair weather during your stay make sure you go to the top of Victoria Peak and enjoy the views.
