The urban jungle of Hong Kong is as much a must-see as it was when it was a British colony, and reports of decline are somewhat misleading.

Though SARS had a huge impact on the city (and still does), the vast sprawl of the city is every bit enticing as it ever was.

Take the ferry from Kowloon to Central to take in the enormity of the place and reflect on how you thought the city might look. Once in Central the architecture is fascinating, as indeed is the colourful street scene.

It is not only the architecture that dazzles. From budget street eats to fine dining restaurants, the food scene in Hong Kong is among the best in the world, and a good guide to the city is essential. We recommend the Time Out guide. Get more information from here.
