DESCRIPTION :
From zero to hundred in 175 years no other metropolis has as compressed and chequered a history as Hong Kong, with its striking and seamless blend of eastern and western cultures. Famous for its cosmopolitan nightlife, cutting-edge fashion, culinary sophistication, and entertainment, Hong Kong also conceals a trove of lesser-known and unpredictable experiences. More than 260 islands and country parks as far as the eye can see - who would expect such breathtaking natural beauty in one of the most densely populated cities on Earth? Step off the beaten path to explore Hong Kong's hidden heart. Discover what compels locals to stand in a line that snakes around the corner every morning at 4:30am, and from which "Great Wall of China" you will find a wonderful view over the South China Sea. Learn what gas lanterns have to do with the bubonic plague, and visit a place where 1,000,000 HK$ for a golf cart seems like a bargain. From secluded beaches to wishing trees, prepare to be surprised, delighted, and amazed.
