DAILY TRAVEL INSPIRATION: Hong Kong

As an autonomous province of China, Hong Kong has a distinctive feel from mainland China. Its history as a major trading port has given Hong Kong a diverse population and a unique atmosphere that represents the melting pot of different cultures that have settled here over the centuries.

Hong Kong is gathered around the harbour with skyscrapers and mountain peaks looming above. Take a Star Ferry from Kowloon to Central to get a fantastic view of the city. Another great viewpoint is from Victoria Peak, which at 552 metres is the highest point in Hong Kong. There are plenty of hikes up the hill, but you can also reach the top on an almost vertical funicular railway.

Hong Kong is also well known for its incredible food culture. Head to Tim Ho Wan for Michelin starred dim sum at very affordable prices. As well as fine dining restaurants, there are small cafes and market stalls everywhere to pick up a quick meal or snack. Join a walking tour to find hidden gems and strange local specialities such as snake soup.
