Hong Kong could easily be a synonym for madness. An autonomous territory in China, this 'fragrant harbour' is one of the most populous cities in the world and an absolute tourist magnet.
There are the tallest of skyscrapers, standing in all their silvery glory, chic boutiques, vibrant flea markets selling the loveliest of antiques, grand temples, churches and mosques, massive parks, zoos and museums. And then of course, there is the magical Disneyland. Interestingly, this former British colony has what could possibly be the best public transportation system on this planet and this acts as a further impetus for travellers.
The number of places to visit in Hong Kong can intimidate even the most seasoned of travel enthusiasts. Immerse yourself in the city's love for wonton noodles and dim sums, karaoke bars and shopping streets. Explore its wonderful neighbouring islands that allow you to indulge in the rare luxury of fetishism (read Macau), relish the Cantonese Opera, go up close and personal with celebrities at Madame Tussauds, let the Tian Tan Buddha help you attain enlightenment and take home a truckload of happy memories. Every single hour spent in 'Asia's World City' will be pleasurable and here is a 6 day / 5 night itinerary to help you with the same.
