  • Tailor-made luxury holidays to Hong Kong

    Asia Hong Kong
    Formerly a British colony until China resumed power in 1997, Kowloon’s big, brash brother is a tightly-packed, towering paean to market capitalism, utterly and unashamedly undaunted by 14 years of Chinese rule. Teeming with people, cluttered with traffic, festooned in neon and dizzying with towering skyscrapers, Hong Kong can be overwhelming at first, but swim with the current, navigate your way through its alleys and along its bay, and you’ll find a fascinating city that is utterly safe and endlessly enchanting. Perhaps Hong Kong’s most intriguing asset is its people, scurrying between offices and home, swarming it s Central Market, gathering for dawn Tai Chi in the park, working the junks anchored in the harbour, flocking to the floating restaurants and bars after work. However, if you do want to get away from the hustle and bustle, Hong Kong has Victoria Peak, rising nearly 2,000ft above the modern maelstrom below. Sprinkled across the South China Sea, Hong Kong’s outlying islands also offer wonderful daytrips away, offering quieter beaches and temples, waterfront cafes and walks. If it’s pampering you’re after, money can buy the ultimate luxuries in a city well used to serving its tiny, moneyed elite. Yet Hong Kong is also a city of simple pleasures. Most often it’s the least pricey experiences – a $2 tram or ferry ride up to The Peak, a Star Ferry night-crossing from Kowloon back to beckoning neon skyline of Hong Kong Island, a whiff of incense curling from temple rafters, your first taste of shredded jellyfish – that will stay with you long after you leave.

    Local highlights

    Ride the tram to The Peak for unbeatable harbour and city views; take a Star Ferry at night from Kowloon to Central, with Hong Kong’s spectacular neon skyline beckoning; Happy Valley, one of the most famous race courses in the world, right there in the city centre surrounded by skyscrapers; Sik Sik Yuen Wong Tai Sin Temple, Hong Kong’s most colourful, bustling temple; walk along Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade for spectacular skyline vistas; Temple Street Night Market; shop for bargains at Kowloon’s markets; take three-tiered high tea at The Peninsula, a veritable Hong Kong institution; go walking or mountain biking in the New Territories, Hong Kong’s lungs, criss-crossed by mountain trails, an excellent way to escape the urban crowds; take a ferry to the outlying islands for intimate peeps at traditional village life, great seafood, brooding misty mountains and peaceful Buddhist temples.

    Getting out and about

    Hong Kong’s extensive public transport offers a bewildering number of routes that will take you just about anywhere in the territory. Since Kowloon and the northern side of Hong Kong Island are so well served by the Mass Transit Railway (MTR), most visitors only use buses to explore the southern side of Hong Kong Island and the New Territories. Despite Hong Kong’s comprehensive road and rail public-transport system, the territory still relies very much on ferries (faster, cheaper, more scenic and just more fun than buses and MTR) to get across the harbour and to reach the Outlying Islands. In fact, you can’t say you’ve ‘done’ Hong Kong until you’ve ridden a Star Ferry, Hong Kong’s wonderful fleet of a dozen electric-diesel vessels with names like Morning Star, Celestial Star and Twinkling Star.

    Travel arrangements

    Many airlines fly direct to Hong Kong from the UK, including British Airways, Qantas, Cathay Pacific and Virgin Atlantic. Flight time is about 12 hours.
