Hong Kong, officially known as Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, is set of islands that are under the purview of Mainland China, but is being administered separately, as it was under the rule of the British until 1997. Although a relatively small island state, Hong Kong is one of the world’s leading centres of finance and business owing to it being one of the most important ports in the world. The name Hong Kong derives from the Cantonese for “Fragrant Harbour”, as it was known in ancient times for its trade of incense.
Among Hong Kong’s main draws are its cityscape, the amazing bargains to be had on shopping sprees, and sightseeing tours, where you can get mesmerised by the amazing views of the skyscrapers, the harbour and the green hills that the country has to offer. Special tours can be booked quite easily to see the country in all its glory on an individual or group basis.
Hong Kong has long been one of the major tourist destinations in the Far East, and a number of popular attractions draw large crowds to its fragrant shores every year. Hong Kong Disneyland, Temple Street Night Market, Ladies’ Market, the Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade, and Lan Kwai Fong are among the most notable tourist destinations in the country. Hong Kong’s past makes it a bit more culturally diverse than the rest of China and travellers will have little to no difficulty in communicating in English.
