Best things to do in Hong Kong
Essential city info, articles & travel tips from our local hosts
Hong Kong is a sensory feast of sights, smells, and sounds all shrouded by an iconic steel-and-glass skyline (Hong Kong has more skyscrapers than any city on earth) silhouetted by leafy mountains hiding rare birds and historic gems of their own. Its diverse and colorful culture is a combination of traditional Chinese roots, colonial influences, and the city’s own indigenous contributions. In this city, you don’t have to wonder what to do – each enchanting neighborhood beckons with its own delightful attractions, and downtown Hong Kong is an inner-city playground kitted out with everything that makes a modern metropolis worth visiting: incredible food, mind-boggling architecture, fantastic transport, and man-made beauty that’s equally breathtaking in the day and at night. But the city isn’t all bright lights and sharp angles. In fact, it’s nature – the glittering Victoria Harbor, volcanic arches, and sprawling parks – that makes Hong Kong one of the most stunning modern marvels in the world.
