Hong Kong Travel Guide

Introduction

Hong Kong is impressive, no matter how you slice it. It has one of the most stunning skylines of an city in the world – right up there with New York. In fact, Hong Kong Island is a veritable skyscraper city, packed with slick, modern, steel-and-glass towers that dazzle new arrivals in a mesmerizing rush when approaching by air, and offer up an eye-popping vista when arriving by ferry from the Kowloon side. Indeed, it is a densely packed city, and singularly the most international metropolis in China, largely built during the 150-plus years of British colonialism. And despite the return of the "colony" to China in 1997, Hong Kong remains a business and financial center of gargantuan proportions, with one of the highest median incomes in the world.
