An international food lover’s haven meets ancient Chinese influence
Hello and Ni Hao, welcome to Hong Kong, formerly under British rule the city is now a Chinese Special Administrative region, though there’s plenty of dissatisfaction about that. Locals here use both Mandarin and English, often code switching depending on company or even mixing and matching the languages within a conversation or even a single sentence. Though a city, Hong Kong is mountainous and dense with country style parks, so you should get to experience a little nature as a visitor. Theatre and contemporary are hugely popular in the city, which has a unique cultural scene due to its colonial history. Hong Kong is also a foodie town – you’ll find Japanese, Chinese and European-influenced delights on every corner. If you want to see how Buddhist temples and inner-city peaks combine with modern culinary late night spots and indie concerts, then VISIT HONG KONG!
