Hong Kong is a true city of contrasts, with East meeting West and new meeting old, and you can explore it all for less with cheap flights to Hong Kong from Australia with Globehunters.
While it’s a very popular destination for business travellers, Hong Kong has plenty to offer everyone, with its stunning mountains and glistening skyscrapers.
One of the main attractions is the Peak Tram, which takes you all the way up to Victoria Peak, which offers some of the most breath-taking views of Hong Kong in the whole city.
Or down on the waterfront you can see Hong Kong’s own version of the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the Avenue of Stars.
The harbour truly is one of Hong Kong’s best features, and you can enjoy a romantic cruise across it via the Star Ferry, or for a livelier experience, head inland to the markets of Cheung Sha Wan Road and Temple Street, which come alive at night with traders selling local food and drink and other wares.
And for a more spiritual attraction, head out the Giant Buddha statue in the mountains of Lantau Island, or follow the Ping Shan Heritage Trail to see some of the city’s temples and shrines.
