Hong Kong Destinations

Hong Kong is an autonomous territory, formerly a British colony, in the south east of China. Not only is it extremely popular as a stopover, but the colonial city is also a great holiday destination for extended stays. Find an incredible mix of modern skyscrapers with renowned architectures, colonial buildings and traditional Chinese temples. Bargain hunters will find retail haven in various departmental stores, high-end shops and night markets. Sightseeing, attractions and tourist spots in Hong Kong are endless. Some of the best cuisines are found on both Kowloon and Hong Kong island.

Macau

Macau is a separate autonomous territory, slightly south west of Hong Kong, and was a Portuguese colony until 1999. It is easily reachable from Hong Kong either as a day trip or an add-on; the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau bridge is the longest sea crossing in the world and allows easy access between the two by bus in only 45 minutes (don't forget your passport!). Alternatively, take the ferry across for a more scenic view (just one hour).

While Macau's main draw for tourists is its world-famous casinos, there is also a fascinating range of historic sites to discover, boasting a unique mix of Chinese and Portuguese colonial heritage. Be sure to visit the ruins of St Paul's Cathedral as well as Senado Square to see this extraordinary clash of east and west for yourself.
