Some Of The Best Reasons To Visit Hong Kong

Hong Kong, China is one of those vacation destinations that most people aspire to visit at some point in their life but aren't really sure why. They've heard good things and seen some interesting photos but they really don't know what's there or what kind of things are there for tourists to do. For those who have struggled to justify a trip to this amazing part of the Pacific Rim, this article is for you.

Hong Kong is a city that is as rich in culture, tradition, and history as any other city in the world. With nearly 40 million international visitors every year, Hong Kong is also one of the world's most visited cities and caters to just about every desire and lifestyle imaginable.

There are several popular districts within Hong Kong including Soho, Victoria Peak, and Lan Kwai Fong, all of which are considered tourist hotspots. With so much for visitors to see and do in this expansive city, it can often be a bit confusing for first time visitors to know how to best spend their time here. The following should help alleviate that confusion.

One of the best ways to start your vacation in Hong Kong is by taking a helicopter ride over the city. The Peninsula Hotel offers visitors a bird's eye view of all of Hong Kong whether you are a guest at the hotel or not. The rides are reasonably priced and are a great way to break the ice on the first or second day of your trip.

One of the most fascinating attractions in the city is the Hong Kong Maritime Museum. The history of Hong Kong as a Far East shipping route and its position between the Pearl River Delta and the South China Sea make maritime a huge part of the city's history.

The Man Mo Temple is a monument to the China's gods of literature and war. Incense and dimly lighting accentuate the historical aesthetic that permeates this religious edifice. Visitors can have their fortunes read by on-site soothsayers and antique memorabilia is available on sale to visitors.

If the helicopter ride didn't offer enough of an aerial view for you, then you will definitely want to take a trip on the Ngong Ping Cable Car. This car hangs over the South China Sea and travels across 5 miles of suspension cable to offer riders breathtaking views of Lantau Island on the way to the world's largest outdoor Buddha.

Those who have been to Hong Kong already know the plethora of things there are to do and see in this great city. But if you have not yet been there, now you have at least a few reasons to book your flight as soon as possible.
