As a Special Administrative Region of China, Hong Kong is situated on the southeast coast of China.
The city is one of the world's leading financial, banking and trading centres. It is made up of four parts: Hong Kong Island, Kowloon Peninsula, the New Territories and the Outlying Islands. The prosperous island is the centre of economy, politics, entertainment and shopping with its southern part noted for sea shores and bays. Kowloon is another flourishing part where Tsim Sha Tsui, Yau Ma Tei and Mong Kok are the most popular destinations. The New Territories and Outlying Islands are ideal places to experience a peaceful and natural holiday.
Hong Kong serves as an important transport hub between international cities and regions with major cities in Mainland China. The well-developed urban transport system can be used to most places in the city, making traveling convenient and cheap. Different cultures bring food all over the world to this city, so it is a paradise for foodies.
After a busy day of traveling, it is highly recommended to appreciate the colourful nightlife. An open city with a wonderful natural harbour, it is a place where various cultures blend harmoniously. British culture can be found everywhere as a result of former colonial rule, while it also preserves traditional customs and the core values of Confucianism that have faded in Mainland China. It is the backdrop for modern movies and pop music that enjoy worldwide recognition.
