A thriving city with a lot to see and do

83%
Found this guide helpful

Hong Kong is a multicultural metropolis. Being a popular stopover destination for many airlines that use Asia as a connection point makes this city an excellent one night stop over or for a longer five to seven day stay. There is a wide range of activities for all the family, interesting history, food and shopping and plenty of green space and quiet natural areas to get away from the crowds.

TassieTravellers99's City Tips

  • For transport purposes pick up an octopus card which can be easily added value to at many stations and shops. Apart from just travel it can be used to pay for entry fees at some attractions and some shop purchases.
  • There are plenty of markets from which to get a bargain. Particularly at the markets haggling is expected.
