Hong Kong

Dazzling, beautiful, intense, steeped in history, almost overwhelming—Hong Kong is all of these things and more. The mix of Chinese and British cultures that pervades the fabric of this tiny region of seven million makes it incredibly unique.

One of the most densely populated places in the world, Hong Kong is teeming with people, sights and sounds; you will never lack for things to catch your attention, from music and art to tours and festivals. Just hanging around Victoria Harbour is time well spent. Amazing food can be found everywhere, from the smallest street vendor to the hippest hotspot in the tallest building, and the shopping is quite possibly the best in the world. Visitors come year-round, though summers are super hot—shoot for spring or fall. Book hotels well in advance. Visit
