Reasons Why You Should Visit Hong Kong

By Edited Jun 11, 2014 1 3

A small island located in the south of China, Hong Kong is popular among tourists because of its breathtaking skyline, good food, shopping and exciting nightlife. This city used to be a British colony until 1997. Its culture is a blend of both western and eastern influences, and its people can speak mostly Mandarin and English plus many other foreign languages. There are so much to see in this small island and so much to experience aside from its skyscrapers and bright lights.

 You must think that this is just any other city in the world, but here are the top reasons why you should visit Hong Kong. Read on and you may want to get ready to pack your bags and take the next plane to this island.

It’s a shopper’s heaven in Hong Kong

You are very likely to find a store or boutique of your favorite luxury signature brands. Here you can buy authentic designer clothes, bags and accessories. If you are on a budget, there are a lot of cheap products sold at the bazaars where you can haggle for the best price. Whatever you need—gadgets, souvenir items, clothes, shoes, food, Chinese products—you will certainly find it in Hong Kong. In fact, window-shopping can be just as satisfying because there’s too many items to see and check out.

 Hong Kong is a Family Friendly Place

You can find one of the happiest places in the world in Hongkong Disneyland! The smallest of the Disneylands in the world, it opened a few years ago so it is not as crowded as any other park. It’s still packed during weekends as you can expect, but is still easy to deal with. The Ocean Park, a marine-themed amusement park, is another place the whole family can spend quality time together. The kids will surely enjoy “The Dragon” roller coaster as well as the California sea lion display. These destinations will make your family’s visit to Hongkong truly memorable.

 It’s a picture-perfect City

Grab your cameras then go to the Victoria Peak. This tall mountain will provide you a spectacular view of Victoria Harbor and Kowloon City, especially at night. Victoria Peak is the perfect place to take your loved one and spend a romantic time enjoying the breathtaking view of the city night-lights. There are a couple of shopping centers near the area for the enjoyment of the tourists. It also offers fantastic’s views of the coast during the daytime that’s just picture-perfect.

 Hong Kong offers food for every taste

Hong Kong boasts a wide variety of restaurants that serves various cuisines from all over the world. There are food streets where you can try out the local delicacies and exotic foods, traditional Chinese food, as well as the fresh seafood. Coffee shops and teahouses are also sprawled across the city for those people who are just looking to wind down and relax and calm down.

 Traveling to Hong Kong will be fun and enjoyable for individuals or groups of friends and families who are looking to rendezvous in the urban jungle.
