Victoria Peak, Hong Kong, China

Hong Kong

A city with something to offer everyone, from great shopping to accessible beaches, local history and culture to sky-scraping modern architecture, a wide choice of restaurants and cuisines and an atmospheric nightlife.

Hong Kong is considered to be a fusion of two cultures, East and West.

Hong Kong has changed very little since the handover of the territory from Britain to China in 1997. Commonly known as one country with two systems – it still retains its own currency and has different policies to the rest of the country.

Easy to get around with English widely spoken, it’s a city well worth devoting a few days to either at the beginning or the end of a holiday to China. It is also a good option for families, with its Zoological and Botanical gardens, Ocean Park and Disneyland on Lantau Island.

Paul Craven

Paul is the Conde Nast Traveler chosen Specialist for Central Asia and the Silk Route.

Being from a family with Army connections I can from an early age remember travelling. From camping in Europe and then later being sent to boarding school when we lived in Germany at the age of eight, complete with shorts, long socks, a cap and my suitcase. In appearance not too dissimilar to the children evacuated to the countryside during the blitz.

Clare Higginson

It was my passion for languages that first encouraged me to leave the UK behind and grab my rucksack. Since then, it’s been a mixture of intriguing cultures, jaw-dropping landscapes and the wonder of seeing animals in their natural habitat that sees me continuously extending my travel wish list.
