Hong Kong: Where East Mixes with West!
Hong Kong truly is a world city! It has so much history and seems to be a magnet for people from all around the world. It has some truly amazing things to see and do there. One of these is the Symphony of Light. It’s the world’s largest permanent light and sound show. It involves 44 skyscrapers on both sides of the Victoria Harbour lighting up in time to music.

Another cool place is the monastery and Big Buddha on Lantau Island. It has some very picturesque fishing villages and a famous Buddhist monastery which is home to one of the biggest outdoor Buddha images in the world. It’s a perfect retreat from the noise and fast pace of Hong Kong.

The Central Mid-Levels escalator is another great attraction. At over 800 metres long, it’s the longest outdoor escalator in the world and rises 135 metres from bottom to top. The escalator runs through the hectic Central district, full of stylish restaurants and small shops. It really is a memorable ride.

The Star Ferry is a Hong Kong institution. It’s an eight-minute trip across Victoria Bay by a ferry service that is over 150 years old. Twelve ferries go back and forth across the bay, carrying over 70,000 passengers every day. That’s an incredible 26 million per year! It’s a very romantic journey and an incredible experience.

Kowloon Park is the best-known park in Hong Kong. It’s right in the centre of the city. It has a beautifully designed aviary for birds and a pond which is crowded with pink flamingoes. It’s popular with both tourists and also locals, who go to the park to practise Tai Chi.
