Hong Kong Holidays,  Hong Kong Holiday Packages Overview

Hong Kong is powerful, wealthy and very cosmopolitan. While it has a predominantly commercial persona, it also has a very rich cultural scene featuring home-grown talent, colonial influences and Chinese roots.

More than 70% of land in Hong Kong is country parks and mountains. A number of geological gems can be found once you go further from the city limits. From the traditional Song-dynasty village and beautiful beaches and deserted islands, Hong Kong also offers a number of excellent outdoor activities.

The new territories are home to the Ping Shan Heritage Trail that passes through some very important historical sites. Other historical attractions in Hong Kong include Tsang Tai Uk, the walled Hakka Village, the traditional Fu Shin Street Bazaar and temples like Ten Thousand Buddhas Temple, Man Mo Temple and Che Kung Temple.

Kowloon is also home to the Walled City Park while Lantau offers many attractions like the Tien Tan Buddha Statue, Po Linki Monastery and the stilt houses of Tai O. Hong Kong also offers breathtaking scenery and stunning landscapes.

Lantau Island is a great place to explore secluded beaches, fishing villages, monasteries and countryside where visitors can mountain bike, fish, camp and hike. The Chinese White Dolphins live in the waters off Tung Chung of Lantau Island.

Sai Kung Peninsula has beautiful coastal scenery and mountainous terrain that offers an excellent range of outdoor activities for every skill level, from relaxed to challenging.

Hong Kong lives to eat and is home to an impressive culinary scene. The restaurants in Hong Kong offer an incredible range of choices- Italian, Japanese, French, Vietnamese, Shanghainese, Cantonese and more. It has an equally diverse, unique and exciting nightlife and shopping scene.
