The Area: Hong Kong
Hong Kong endlessly draws visitors, both new and old, into its cultural galaxy made up of a rich Chinese heritage and colonial influences. Even the most far-flung food cravings are sure to be sated in Hong Kong which boasts a host of cuisines including Cantonese, Vietnamese, Japanese and European. Sink teeth into steaming dumplings or slurp up a wonton noodle soup for a more traditional culinary experience.
Look beyond the skyscrapers and glass façade of Hong Kong’s commercial side to the vibrant cultural scene that gives the city its colour. Catch a flick at one of Asia’s best film festivals, greet the day with Tai Chi or see a Cantonese opera to name just a few possibilities. For those who seek the solace of nature after a few days in the big city, simply hop aboard the incredibly efficient public transport network to escape the city limits. Wander through a Song-dynasty village or feel sand between the toes on a deserted beach.
