The Pearl of the Orient
At the south-eastern tip of China, this autonomous territory covers Hong Kong Island, Lantau Island, the Kowloon Peninsula and the New Territories, including 262 outlying islands. Between Hong Kong Island and the Kowloon Peninsula lies Victoria Harbor, one of the world's most renowned deep-water harbors, teeming with traditional Junk Boats sailing its gorgeous blue waters. Experience breathtaking panoramic views of the City's skyline with contemporary architecture dotting the harbor's shores while atop Victoria Peak. While on Lantau Island, admire some of the City's more natural views with a walk to one of the world's largest Buddhas, seated high above Ngong Ping. Hong Kong's culture was born in a sophisticated fusion of East and West, not only keeping many Chinese traditions, but also experienced a baptism of western culture. This situation led to the diversity of its culture and the open-minded people full of variety. As a culinary capital of Asia, Hong Kong boasts various delicacies in the local or from overseas. The city is influenced by western countries and some of the foods there combine the flavors of Chinese and western cuisine.
