A flurry of motion and a cacophony of sounds, Hong Kong dazzles with its frenetic pace and intoxicating East-meets-West vibe. Travel to this intriguing destination of contrasts, a mix of British colonial legacy, ancient Chinese traditions, futuristic cityscapes, and quiet, verdant nooks.
Experience the essence of this city of contradictions, whether you take a tram to the top of Victoria Peak for spectacular views of Hong Kong spreading out below, or a sampan ride off Aberdeen, a quaint fishing village. Savor dim sum at its most authentic — the Cantonese cuisine was born in this province of China — with a specially prepared meal, or absorb Hong Kong’s spiritual traditions amid coiled incense and hushed prayers at Man Mo Temple. Tour a side of Hong Kong not usually experienced by travelers when you make for Lantau Island, a lush, sparsely populated island that is home to the world’s largest seated outdoor bronze Buddha statue, the Tian Tan Buddha.
