Hong Kong, officially known as the Special Administrative Region of the Peopleï¿½s Republic of China is a burst of culture and colour. Housing 18 districts, Hong Kong is one of the most heavily populous regions in the world and the city with the most number of skyscrapers in the world. A major port and shopping hub, Hong Kong is the land of an iconic skyline, delectable cuisine, and protected lush nature reserves. Home to the second-largest sitting Buddha statue, the Tian Tan Buddha, the Fragrant Harbour has a majority of Confucian, Buddhist and Taoist followers. While sustaining ancient culture and tradition through architecture and festivities, Hong Kong perseveres to stand as an entertainment hub at the same time. Ocean Park, Victoria Peak, Victoria Harbour and The Peak Tram are some brilliant sites in Hong Kong. This town of skyscrapers and some of the most beautiful skylines carries out Cantonese and British architectural aspects gained from its colonial period induced with the regional feng shui design.

Besides offering an exciting exposure to art and shopping, the cuisine here is an irresistible fusion of local and international food. Some of the unique traits of Hong Kong, also known as the Worldï¿½s Fair of Food, are its open-air food stalls and Dai Pai Dongs; inexpensive noodle stores!
