Destination: Hong Kong
Introducing Hong Kong
Hong Kong, officially known as Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China, is one of the most densely populated areas in the world. The territory consists of Hong Kong Island, the Kowloon Peninsula, the New Territories and over 200 islands – giving visitors plenty of room to enjoy its ample natural gifts as well as its glitzy metropolitan trappings.
The most popular nightlife districts are upscale Lan Kwai Fong and the grungier Wan Chai on Hong Kong Island. While Hong Kong boasts a staggering 62 Michelin-starred restaurants, its many old-school fishing villages are home to bargain-priced seafood. If it’s rugged outdoor activities and a breath of fresh air you’re after, head out to the UNESCO-listed Hong Kong Global Geopark of China to hike through the different volcanic regions, or escape to Lantau Island with its many hiking trails, tiny fishing villages and pristine beaches.
