Hong Kong has gained and maintained its reputation as a global financial hub and a trusted partner between the East and the West for years. As a former British colony, the stark contrast between those to worlds are still vivid on the streets and in the people of Hong Kong. 

Islands, beaches, nature, lot’s of green gardens and national parks, dozens of opportunities to hike everywhere. These are just some of the attributes that hardly anyone would associate with Hong Kong – and yet, this autonomous region within the Greater China Region offers all of the above. 

There are lot’s of opportunities, everywhere you look around to have fun and to learn something new about the history, culture and the people. And although it may face some disruptive periods from time to time, Hong Kong remains a viable, vivid and harmonious part of East Asia, which its doors are open to everyone.

Mong Kok

Typical film scenes and images of Hong Kong’s busy streets are probably best reflected in one of its most famous districts, Mong Kok on Kowloon. The neighborhood is well-known for its local retailers, shops and restaurants. But the large part of those multi-story buildings are used as residential condos. That’s why Mong Kok has made it to the top #1 of all cities in the world with the highest density. And yet, Mong Kok is a must-to-see place for every Hong Kong traveller who would love to immerse in typical Hong Konger every day life street scenes and shopping experiences.
