There is a great history to this former British colony, and one must travel a little further out to find soft adventure experiences that rival any destination in Asia. To accompany the visual extravaganza in the city, there are a number of entertainment parks and don’t forget Macau, the former Portuguese colony is just a 50 minute jet-foil boat ride away.

For any traveler, this vertical city presents an opportunity to quickly become involved with these traditions and experience them first hand. Whether it is joining a tai chi class at dawn, eating local food on the street, watching an exhilarating game of rugby or following a path through the mountains, Hong Kong never fails to excite.
