Hong Kong

THE PEARL OF THE ORIENT

Hong Kong, (literally "fragrant harbour") is a bustling city located on the southern tip of the Chinese province of Guangdong formerly known as "Canton". As a former British colony and situated right next to China, this vibrant metropolis is where east meets west, city that will almost certainly overwelm your senses.

In parts, Hong Kong is a densley populated concrete jungle where every inch of space is at a premium, but there are other sides to Hong Kong too: sleepy fishing villages, mountains brimming with sub-tropical foliage and sleepy traditional farms that overlook the towering skyscrapers of Shenzhen across the border.

Hong Kong is truly a cultural melting pot with inhabitants hailing from a wide range of surrounding countries and further afield. No wonder it is known as Asia's "World City". Nowhere is this more apparent than in the wide range of food on offer, from local dim sum to Japanese, Texmex to the finest French cuisine you can find everything inis compact city. 

Hong Kong is also one of the financial powerhouses of Asia, with many Fortune 500 companies having their offices here in this gateway to China, and is the only former British colony to have surpassed the average GDP per Capita of the UK.

No matter what kind of traveller you are, a foodie looking for authentic cuisine,a history buff looking to learn about ancient Chinese and colonial history, a shopoholic or even just someone who likes to enjoy the great outdoors, Hong Kong has everything that you are looking for. Come and experience the charm of this city with Uemura.
