Welcome to Hong Kong, a harbour city that mixes culture, entertainment, food, and history all in one location – making it one of the best cities in the world for your next Staycation. Being under Britain’s rule until 1997, the customs and heritages of this massive city are different from mainland China’s.
There is a fusion between Western and Eastern traditions, creating something both familiar, but different to people from either side of the world. This is one of the reasons why Hong Kong has been such a popular tourist destination, bringing 65 million travellers every year, but it’s certainly not its last.
The transit system in Hong Kong is one of the best in the world, making it easy and simple for everyone to get from one neighbourhood to another. It’s especially beneficial for tourists, who can save money by avoiding taxis and who can travel to attractions all over the city. Some popular destinations are Victoria Peak, the Tian Tan Buddha, Hong Kong Disneyland, Dragon’s Back, Wong Tai Sin Temple, and Temple Street Night Market.
There is a wide variety of things to see, do, and experience during your next Hong Kong Staycation. Want to go hiking? No problem. Over 70% of Hong Kong Island is untouched by urbanization, so you easily travel to a trail to get in touch with nature. Strapped for cash but you still want to buy souvenirs? Don’t worry about it. Head to any market stand and you can bargain to your heart’s content. You can do it all in Hong Kong.
