Travel Spotlight: Hong Kong
The mysterious city of Hong Kong is full of ancient traditions, skyscrapers, and delightful cuisine that will keep you fascinated no matter how many times you visit. Go to Ngong Ping village to view traditional Chinese architecture or distress at Nan Lian Garden amongst the beautiful landscape.
One of the best parts about Hong Kong is the mix of both modern technology and the traditional Chinese culture. Due to its 150 years under British rule, Hong Kong’s vibrant culture is a sophisticated and unique fusion of both Eastern and Western influences. Look into seeing a Cantonese opera, go to the park and partake in some morning Tai Chi, or walk through the beautiful religious temples.
Hong Kong is Asia’s top spot for culinary delights. If you’re looking for Chinese cuisine, you should check out Tin Lung Heen or Ding Dim 1968. However, as Hong Kong offers great food options from around the world. Italian lovers should head on over to Pirata, while vegetarians will want to check out Happy Veggie.
One of my favorite features about shopping in Hong Kong is there is no sales tax. Not to mention the wide assortment of shopping options. You can choose from swanky malls, antique stores, side street boutiques, or bazaars full of various sized gadgets. Whatever your need or whim, there is somewhere to find it.
