About Hong Kong Tourism:
You might have seen pictures of Hong Kong – a mass of rising steel and glass structures with a skyscraper-studded skyline. The real ethos of this island located in south eastern China, however, is realised only once you’ve visited the place. Hong Kong tourism offers a unique mix of old and new – eastern values come together with western liberalism to offer an avant-garde modernity suffused with old world charm. Home to seven million people, the place is a melting pot of cultures. The people here prefer identifying themselves as ‘Hong Kongers’ instead of just Chinese. The name Hong Kong was derived from hēung góng which translates to ‘fragrant harbour’ or ‘incense harbour’. The name could have been created to explain the fragrance of freshwater or the incense which would hang over the harbour due to the many incense factories nearby.Either way, the name has stayed true to the place owing to the myriad fragrances it encompasses to create one unique experience – from neighbourhoods which mirror this mix of the old and new, to the abundance of nature present in the form of gardens and hiking trails as well as the food and extravagant festivals which it hosts. It is no wonder then that Hong Kong tourism is growing by the day. We’ve got everything you need to know to explore the beautiful island city fully.
