Once a British Colony, Hong Kong is now a fusion of East and West, a vibrant, fast-paced, dazzling, bustling and incredibly exciting city. Hong Kong can generally be divided into two areas. Hong Kong Island, long associated with superb restaurants and designer boutiques and Kowloon with its bustling street markets, and representing a paradise of shops, bars, restaurants and hotels.
Hong Kong embraces both the old and the new with its traditional Chinese culture and its glittering skyscrapers, symbolic of its success in the modern world. It is a brash, buccaneering city that delights the visitor and yet provides surprises with its countless contradictions.
