The bustling metropolis of Hong Kong is known by many names: the fashion capital of Asia, Asia's Hollywood and the Pearl of the Orient just to name a few. But whatever you may choose to call it, one thing is for sure: Hong Kong is a wonderful city to visit and travel in. Whether you prefer an exciting, upbeat holiday or a peaceful, quiet getaway, Hong Kong has it all.
One of the most recommended activities in Hong Kong is shopping. Boasting one of Asia's most dynamic economies, Hong Kong is filled with shopping locations stocked with some of the world's leading designer and luxury fashion brands. There are also a variety of night markets and bargain retail shops which sell almost everything from souvenir trinkets to knock-off brand imitation goods.
One of the must-sees is the night-view at Victoria Harbour in which decorative lights from skyscrapers and buildings light up to dazzle visitors with an extravagant light show known as the Symphony of Lights. In addition, no trip to Hong Kong is ever complete without a tram ride to the top of Victoria's Peak where one will be greeted with an amazing view of the Hong Kong skyline.
Over on Lantau Island, Hong Kong Disneyland is a popular tourist attraction which promises fun for the whole family. But if you prefer a more quiet and relaxing day out, Ngong Ping village on Lantau Island is a Buddhist highland monastery with beautiful scenery and a peaceful ambience usually accessed by cable car.
These are but some of the many attractions Hong Kong has to offer. So hurry up and plan your visit to this buzzing metropolis now! Who knows? You might even meet a famous celebrity!
