A guide to Hong Kong
Many people often think of Hong Kong as being a global financial centre, and while this is certainly true, it is just one small aspect of what this city is really about. It features one of the largest and most impressive skylines of any city in the world, an astonishing variety of restaurants serving all kinds of cuisines, and fantastic nightlife and arts facilities.
The city where East meets West
Western and Eastern cultures live in harmony in Hong Kong. For example, the city is just as noted for its Asian restaurants as it is for its French cuisine and American-style fast food venues. The city also has a special appreciation for tea and consumes around 10 million kilograms of it every year. It is also proud to offer some of the most affordable Michelin star restaurants in the world. One of them is the 'Tim Ho Wan, the Dim-Sum Specialists', which provides first-rate cuisine at a fraction of the price of what you would find in Michelin Star restaurants in Europe and North America.
Some of Hong Kong's key museums
Visit the futuristic Hong Kong Space Museum and explore the venue's impressive planetarium, which houses a large astronomy hall, space science hall and space theatre. The Hong Kong Heritage Museum, meanwhile, exhibits the Cantonese Opera Heritage Trail, special memorabilia of the famous Hong Kong-American Kung Fu star Bruce Lee, and an interactive play zone for children. Art fans should definitely visit the Hong Kong Museum of Art, which opened to the public in the 1960s, and showcases many important sculptures and artworks from the city and Mainland China.
Other places of interest
Hong Kong Park is a popular open space and is noted for its Flagstaff House Museum of Teaware and excellent bird exhibition at the Edward Youde Aviary. If you're looking for somewhere that will keep the whole family entertained, consider visiting Hong Kong Disneyland on Lantau Island. This is one of the largest theme parks in the world and is noted for its majestic Sleeping Beauty Castle, Railroad, and spectacular Haunted Halloween celebration.
For what could arguably be the finest view of the city, and therefore one of the finest city views you will ever encounter on earth, head to the Victoria Peak. Easily accessible via a funicular railway, this vantage point provides a remarkable view of the entire Hong Kong skyline and harbour, and is the perfect place for a family photograph. If you have time, visit during the day and then visit again at night to observe the city's hundreds of skyscrapers all illuminated.
