Hong Kong is a fascinating city on the coast of southern China that is now known as the Special Administrative Region of the People's Republic of China. A British colony until 1998, it is a bustling metropolis that is one of the most densely populated areas in the world. The skyline reflects this with so many high rise buildings that it is known as the world's most vertical city. If you want a spectacular view, take the tram to Victoria Peak to observe this ultra modern cityscape and the surrounding islands. Thirty percent of the land in Hong Kong is devoted to nature reserves and country parks and the long coast line has rivers, bays and beaches, so it is easy to find a relaxing spot away from the urban sprawl. If this is your first visit, an organised tour is recommended. If you wish to explore the city on your own, invest in a Hong Kong sightseeing pass. This enables you to choose four of the main attractions which include a Victoria Harbour cruise, the tram to the Victoria Peak, the fisherman's village, the theme park, the hop on and off bus, as well as several more.
