Hong Kong Fragrant Harbour Exciting Discoveries

The fragrance of incense wafting with the sea breeze, lent the name “fragrant harbour” to Hong Kong, one of the most exciting island states in South East Asia. When you take the Hong Kong Holiday Package or Hong Kong Tour Package, you will discover how this bunch of small fishing villages has metamorphosed into a stunning and glittering sophisticated modern city, with the largest number of skyscrapers in the world!

Located at the south of China, Hong Kong is surrounded by water – the South China Sea on its east, south and west, and the Pearl River delta. A Hong Kong Holiday Package will take you to its innumerable pretty bays, beaches and rivers, besides green hills and mountains. As you go through a heritage tour or through any one of its several museums to reach its historical core, you will be astounded at the splendid variety of the wonders of this island city. It has a stunning skyline – the best in the world; its’ Victoria Harbour and surrounding mountains complement the amazing and illuminated skyscrapers.

As a tribute to its martial arts and practitioners of the same, there is a statue of Bruce Lee in the city. Jackie Chan is another noted artiste from here. Its’ catchy Cantopop music, a fusion of Chinese and Western genres, cuts across communities and has a wide fan following. Tourists who take the Hong Kong Tour Package may well find themselves in the midst of some musical or dance festival. Hong Kong balances traditional Chinese concepts with modern entertainment through its mix of glamour, elite hotels, shopping malls, haute cuisine, fast food restaurants, dim sum and hot pot.

The Hong Kong Holiday Package will leave you truly enthralled. Its Star Ferry service turned iconic after Hollywood’s The World of Suzie Wong, and takes tourists across Victoria Harbour on a trip to discover its scenic charms, as water, land, mountains and blue sky combine to cast their spell. The ferry has a popular nightly Symphony of Lights show to capture the island’s glittering night skyline. While adventurous tourists can reach out to Hong Kong’s remote regions by its small kai-to ferries, its junks are more popular. The Peak Tram, which takes tourists through breathtakingly beautiful scenery of Hong Kong, Kowloon and Victoria Harbour as it ascends to the island’s famed Victoria Peak, is a wonder in itself, besides its longest covered escalators and moving pavement system in its central and western districts.

The Hong Kong Tour Package will lead you to this captivating island city, which has a population that is largely Chinese. English is understood; the official language is Cantonese. It is a meeting ground for different communities and cultures as many Asians, Europeans, Canadians and Americans reside here, with a large congregation of Buddhists and Taoists. The varied culture finds reflection in its beautifully ethnic Chinese and European architecture, including Chinese and Indian temples, mosques and churches, besides its cuisine. It has trendy boutiques, malls and street markets – even a night market and a ladies market – turning it into a virtual shoppers’ paradise! Jade and ivory crafted curios are highly popular, as are its Chinese black and herbal tea, while gold jewellery can be bought at tax-free prices!

Its giant bronze Buddha, Ngong Ping piazza and Po Lin monastery are tourist attractions, besides a village that rests on stilts. The Hong Kong Holiday Package will take you to its many parks such as the Global Geopark of China, with its volcanic and sedimentary rock regions and strange landforms, a marvel in itself. It boasts of its own Disneyland and is a hikers’ delight, be it through the city or the outlying regions, to meet its wildlife or watch the dolphins at play.

Due to a humid, sub-tropical climate, the summers are warm with occasional rainfall, while the winters can be cool and cloudy. Spring – March-May – has cool evenings, though autumn – September-November – is exceptionally pleasant, but Hong Kong is good to visit throughout the year. And when you return, don’t forget to bring back a little feng shui charm for good luck!
