OVERVIEW

Known, for very good reason, as ‘Asia’s World City’, Hong Kong – which translates as Fragrant Harbour – is a dynamic, diverse and endlessly fascinating harbour city nestled among lush green mountains on the shores of the South China Sea. A veritable cultural melting pot, exhibiting influences from countries as far flung as Britain, Vietnam and Japan, Hong Kong offers so much to see, do and experience, whether you are interested in Cantonese opera, horse racing, delving into bazaars and antique stores or exploring the city-state’s Outlying Islands.

Couples visiting Hong Kong on honeymoon are sure to have an unforgettable experience in this fast-paced and intriguing city, with its packed cultural calendar, its luxury resorts and its many intriguing attractions. To experience Hong Kong’s rich cultural heritage be sure to visit such destinations as the majestic Tian Tan Buddha, which stands perched on a hill above a monastery and makes for a breath-taking spectacle. Don’t miss the little museum which contains ceramic plaques and vibrant oil paintings depicting events from both the Buddha’s teachings and his life.

Another religious site worth visiting is Man Mo Temple, dedicated to the gods of war and literature. Over 160 years old, this temple evokes a sense of aged grandeur and mystery and makes for a particularly atmospheric attraction. However, if you are in the mood for somewhere a little more lively, why not pay a visit to the Temple Street Night Market, where you can purchase everything from healing herbs to cheap clothing, watches and delicious street food – you can even have your fortunes told.

After a tiring day of sightseeing, unwind with a scenic stroll along Tsim Sha Tsui East Promenade, with its nightly Symphony of Lights sound-and-light show and the Avenue of Stars, with its sculptures and handprints of prominent figures in the Hong Kong film industry. After your walk enjoy a tasty dinner of ‘New Hong Kong’ cuisine at Yin Yang, housed in an elegant 1930’s building on Ship Street in Wan Chai, before preparing for an evening on the town, perhaps taking in a Cantonese opera, singing some karaoke, sipping one of the 150 imported ales available at Globe or enjoying drinks with a view at Sevva.
