Hong Kong surely has few rivals worldwide for being a major city in an outstanding natural setting, surrounded by hills, islands, beaches, waterfalls, wildlife and South China village traditions. Enchanting Hong Kong reveals this multi-faceted destination for a broad spectrum of visitors ranging from those making a short business trip but with some spare time to those who have a bit longer to explore outside the city itself. It provides full information on all the shopping possibilities from the malls to the daytime and night-time markets of Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, Central, Wanchai and Stanley, as well as the many delicious dining possibilities – seafood, especially, is a “must” in Hong Kong. It also takes the visitors a bit further afield to explore the outstanding and extensive network of country trails, the islands, the New Territories and some less well-known beaches.
A holiday in Hong Kong can combine a stay in a comfortable hotel with hiking or birding during the day, some shopping, then dinner and a night on the town. It is a many-splendoured place just waiting to be explored.
