Hong Kong has transformed itself from a fishing village to a metropolis with a vibrant energy and a diverse cultural mix. The historic Star Ferry that crosses the Victoria Harbour offers glorious views of both Hong Kong Island and the Kowloon peninsula. Significant buildings such as the IFC tower, the Bank of China Tower and the Hong Kong Cultural Center in Tsim Sha Tsui rise up from the iconic skyline backed by towering mountains.
Underneath the glass and steel of the commercial hubs lies a surprisingly traditional Chinese culture. Make wishes to the deity at the Wong Tai Sin Temple and be amazed by the huge bronze seated Buddha on top of Lantau Island.
In this ‘food paradise’ there are Michelin-starred restaurants where celebrity chefs create culinary masterpieces that will certainly sate your appetite but also leave a dent in your wallet. Outside, steaming street food stalls bowls serve up authentic flavours in the form of bowls of wanton soup, freshly steamed dim sum and popular egg puffs.
