In "The Camera," part of a recent tourism campaign from the Hong Kong Tourism Board promoting...

Getting to Know Hong Kong’s Sham Shui Po Neighborhood in 4 Steps

This campaign was created and sponsored by the Hong Kong Tourism Board in partnership with iambassador.

Travel: Hong Kong is an easier way to experience exciting China

If the thought of vacationing in China causes some anxiety with all the political, economic, humanitarian and cybersecurity friction going on, not to mention the language barrier and intimidation of a culture so different, consider Hong Kong as a happy alternative. The world’s most visited city effortlessly blends East and West, and like unique sights, sounds and smells, English is omnipresent. Over 150 years of British rule will do that to a place. Those who’ve been there know how much there is...

Hiking in Hong Kong: Your Ticket to Nature and the Outdoors

Look out your airplane window as you fly into Hong Kong and you can’t help but be wowed by the density of development and the sheer number of skyscrapers packed into a space the size of six Washington, DC’s. But what most people don’t realize is that Hong Kong is more than a big city. It’s an archipelago of 236 islands and islets – and a hiker and nature lover’s paradise. While locals are very keen hikers, tourists are largely unaware of the sheer number of hiking trails covering Hong Kong, i...

Don’t miss the natural beauty of Hong Kong (it’s not all skyscrapers & dim sum)

If you’re planning a trip to Hong Kong, you’re probably thinking of dim sum, skyscrapers and stunning Victoria Peak views. These are all fun and worthy things to explore on your Hong King vacation. However, far from the hustle and bustle of the city, there are beautiful beaches, marshes, wetlands teeming with life, and plenty of outdoor adventures. Did you know that three-quarters of Hong Kong’s 1,108 square kilometers of land is rural and nearly pristine? I didn’t know it either until Craig and...

Getting Back to Nature in Hong Kong

Given the famous hustle and bustle of Hong Kong, one doesn’t necessarily expect many outdoors adventures when visiting. However, that is far from being the case. Hong Kong isn’t a singular place; it’s actually made up of Hong Kong Island, the Kowloon Peninsula, the New Territories and over 200 offshore islands. Getting out and enjoying nature is one of the great secrets locals have tried to keep to themselves, but visitors like me have discovered the incredible beauty of Hong Kong away from the...

17 Affordable Hong Kong Hotels You Can Stay At For Under S$200 Per Night

Hong Kong’s accommodation is notorious for its exorbitant prices. Most globally recognised hotel brands located in the heart of this cosmopolitan city charge a hefty amount for a one-night stay, and let’s face it – not everyone is willing or able to spend that excessive amount of money on comfortable lodging. The saving grace is that Hong Kong is pretty big and there is no lack of accommodation choices actually. But if you look further beyond the Central Business District area and search for le...
