Hong Kong Information

Although Hong Kong was inhabited as far back as 35,000 years ago, it was not until 214 B.C. that China's first Emperor speaks of the region now called Hong Kong. Thanks to a convenient location on the sea and the Pearl River Delta, Hong Kong was always a thriving port city. Although the earliest European visitors were from Portugal, it was the British settlers who colonized the islands of Hong Kong and only relinquished control back to China in 1997. Today, Hong Kong is one of two special administrative regions controlled by China but with separate economic policies.

The climate in Hong Kong is categorized as both humid and subtropical. The summers are notoriously warm, with high humidity and frequent tropical rainstorms. Although the temperature certainly drops in the winter, temperatures are never below freezing and snow does not fall. The most popular time to visit Hong Kong is in the autumn, when the weather is dry and comfortable.

There is no shortage of incredible attractions to see and explore in Hong Kong. Some of the most popular tourism attractions include taking the tram up to the top of Victoria Peak, riding a ferry in Victoria Harbour and seeing the Avenue of Stars on Kowloon Island. Although the city is quite urban in reputation, there are a number of scenic natural destinations as well. On Lantau Island, a large seated Buddha statue is a wonderful place to go hiking. Lamma Island, a small fishing location, is ideal for a traditional look at life in Hong Kong and a chance to dine on spectacular local seafood.

Hong Kong's culinary scene is quite unique thanks to the combination of authentic Chinese fare and upscale international cuisine. Most visitors will want to try dim sum, a collection of small dishes eaten in the morning and consisting of rolls, dumplings and other traditional favorites. For an upscale meal, the Central District of Hong Kong offers luxurious cuisine from Italy, France, Germany and Japan.

Although many of the best shopping deals can be found in the little alleys throughout Hong Kong and Kowloon Island, it is the contemporary shopping malls that are most frequented by tourists. Visitors won't want to miss either, so stop by the International Finance Center, in Central, as well as the famous local night market, in Mong Kok.
