With its iconic city skyscrapers overlooking Victoria Bay, Hong Kong is China at its most modern and sophisticated. Its bustling streets are lined with designer boutiques, while it has made its mark as one of the world’s largest financial hubs. Ride the funicular tram up to Victoria Peak for sweeping panoramas, hop aboard the Star Ferry to explore the pulsing streets of Kowloon, and soak up the Portuguese architecture and history amidst the bright casino lights of Macau.
