Hong Kong is a specially-administered island in the South China Sea and one of the most densely-populated cities on Earth. Hong Kong is also one of the world’s major financial centers, but it manages to attract both businessmen and pleasure travelers, all wanting to discover just what Hong Kong tourism has to offer.
Despite its relative isolation from the main cities of the Western world, Hong Kong travel can be a surprisingly simple and inexpensive affair. Most travelers fly into Hong Kong International Airports to begin their Hong Kong holidays, but another option is finding a cheap flight to another of Asia’s large cities and then doing the final leg of your trip to Hong Kong on Hong Kong Express, a regional low-cost air carrier which provides regular and inexpensive flights between Hong Kong and most major Asian cities.
You shouldn't need a visa to travel to Hong Kong for tourism, but always consult your country’s via requirements online. Also, the currency in Hong Kong is the Hong Kong Dollar (roughly $1 = 7.
5HKD) and you’ll need to convert money before you can begin your Hong Kong holiday. There are exchange kiosks in the airport as well as in most international hotel chains in the downtown area.
Now, what to see and do when you visit Hong Kong: shopping plays a large role in any Hong Kong vacation and you’ll find everything from high-end designers to local tailors who’ll make a high-quality custom suit or dress for a fraction of the price in the US or Europe. Don’t forget to bring the kids along for you holidays in Hong Kong! They’re sure to love Hong Kong Disneyland and the rides and animal shows at Ocean Land. Finally, if there is one thing you MUST do during your Hong Kong trip, it’s to spend an evening at Victoria Peak enjoying dinner with amazing views of the Hong Kong skyline before taking a leisurely walk back down the mountain.
