About Hong Kong:
A fusion of two worlds
With a remarkable history that moves through Chinese immigration, colonization by the British and subsequent handover into a Special Administrative Region of China, it should come as no surprise that Hong Kong is such a melting pot of Eastern and Western characteristics.
Culture & Heritage
Taoist temples and Edwardian edifices nestle between skyscrapers, people trade on international markets and light incense to bodhisattvas, vestiges of Chinese clan heritage and European colonial history sit side by side — discover the people and places that shaped Hong Kong.
Constantly looking to the future while always honouring its past, Hong Kong breathes under the duality of a modern city enhanced by the richness of an ancient society. Visitors to Asia’s world city are invited to experience age-old rituals and time-tested wisdom of the East.
When faced with the challenge of a lack of available land, Hong Kong decided to look up. Today, Asia’s world city has more than 7,600 skyscrapers, high-rises and other iconic buildings that make it a living showcase of the best in international contemporary architecture.
Eastern Han dynasty (25 – 220) tombs, splendid 13th century ancestral halls, walled villages, elegant Victorian architecture and WWII relics tell the story of Hong Kong’s journey from a far flung outpost of Imperial China to the culturally diverse crossroads of a shrinking world.
Citylife and cityscapes – Asia’s world city is the ultimate urban destination. But contrast is never far away. Nor are the outlying islands, quaint villages, sandy beaches and undulating mountain paths. Take a break from the hustle and dazzle to explore the real wild side of Hong Kong!
Arts & Performance
Centuries of Chinese influence, 150 years of colonial rule and decades as a crossroads of the world have given Hong Kong a flourishing arts scene in which jazz ensembles, orchestras, film festivals and street market operas are all part of the show.
Events & Festivals
Chinese New Year celebrations, Halloween bashes, arts and film festivals and sports tournaments – from the officially supported Mega Events Fund and “M” Mark Events, to ancient and quirky local festivities, Hong Kong’s year-round calendar of happenings blends East and West, tradition and modernity.
