Hong Kong 

The impression of Hong Kong mostly comes from TVB and various Hong Kong movies. Retro cabs, densely packed buildings, and old pagodas are unique to Hong Kong, yet they are not the only ones. Hong Kong is diverse, the lure of Hong Kong does not need to be hidden, it shines brightly to show the alluring side without hiding in front of everyone.

Many of Hong Kong’s attractions are free of charge, and the subway and buses are basically all that is needed to get around.

The Peak of the Pacific

When visiting Hong Kong, the night view of the Peak is a must-see attraction that cannot be missed. The Peak is now a high-class residential area, where the purchase of a luxury home is the goal of Hong Kong’s wealthy. The Peak is also the best place to overlook the view of Hong Kong and Victoria Harbour. At night, standing on the Peak, under the reflection of thousands of lights, Hong Kong Island and Kowloon Peninsula are like two pearls inlaid in Victoria Harbour, intertwined and spectacular.

Opposite the Po Lin Monastery is the world-famous Tian Tan Buddha. The Buddha’s statue is solemn and peaceful, with his ears hanging from his shoulders and his right hand showing the “Seal of Fearlessness”, showing the Buddha’s wish to save all beings. Designed and produced by the Ministry of Aerospace Science and Technology of China, the Buddha’s relics are enshrined in an exhibition hall at its base. This place is a combination of humanistic, religious and natural landscape, with a charm that is very different from the bustling city of Hong Kong.
