About Hong Kong

Hong Kong welcomes with an iconic skyline, a legendary kitchen, and lush, protected nature where rare birds and colourful traditions thrive. Hong Kong's enchanting neighbourhoods and island offer a sensory feast.

You may find yourself swaying along on a historical double-decker tram, cheering with the hordes at the city-centre horse races, or simply gazing out at the glorious harbour. Over 70% of Hong Kong is mountains and sprawling country parks; some also home to geological and historical gems. Escape the city limits on one of the worlds smoothest transport systems and spend your day wandering in a Song-dynasty village, hiking on a deserted island or kayaking among volcanic sea arches.

Reasons to meet in Hong Kong
  Travel Information
  Conference Venue



Underneath the glass and steel of Hong Kong’s commercial persona is a dynamic cultural landscape where its Chinese roots, colonial connections and the contributions of its home-grown talent become intertwined. Here you’re just as likely to find yourself applauding at Asia’s top film festival as joining in dawn taichi or reading the couplets of a local poet to the drumbeat of a dragon boat. Culture could also mean indie music by the harbour or Chinese opera in a bamboo theatre, not to mention the thousands of shows staged year-round at the city's many museums and concert halls.

Star Ferry

You can not say you've done Hong Kong until you have taken a ride on a Star Ferry, that wonderful fleet of electric-diesel vessel. At any time of the day, the journey, with its riveting views of skyscrapers and jungle-clad hills, must be one of the worlds best-value cruises. At the end of the 10-minute journey, a hemp rope is cast and caught with a billhook, the way it was in 1888.

TIP: Try to take your first trip on a clear night from Kowloon to Central.

The Peak

Standing at 552m, Victoria Peak is the highest point on Hong Kong Island. The Peak is also one of the most visited sports by a tourist in Hong Kong, and it is not hard to see why.

Sweeping views of the vibrant metropolis, verdant woods, easy but spectacular walks.

Tung Choi Market

The Tung Choi Street market offers cheap clothing and trinkets, vendors start setting up their stalls as early as noon.

TIP: It is best to get there between 1 pm and 6 pm when there is much more on offer.

Man Mo Temple

One of Hong Kong's oldest temples and a declared monument, atmospheric Man Mo Temple is dedicated to the gods of literature (MAN), holding a writing brush, and of war (MO), wielding a sword.

Built in 1847 during the Qing dynasty by wealthy Chinese merchants, it was, besides a place of worship, a court of arbitration for local disputes when the trust was thin between the Chinese and the colonialists.

Temple Street Night Market

The liveliest night market in Hong Kong, Temple St extends from Man Ming Lane in the north to Nanking St in the south and is cut in two by the Tin Hau Temple complex.

For street food, head for Woo Sung St, running parallel to the east. You can get anything from a simple bowl of noodles to a full meal. There are also a few seafood and hotpot restaurants in the area.
