Destination guide

Hong Kong – a mesmerising modern melting pot

Hong Kong makes a dazzling first impression, with a glittering skyline that looks like something from a sci-fi movie. But dig a little beneath its gleaming modern facade, and you'll find a unique cultural melting pot – the consequence of 1000s of years of Chinese heritage, centuries as a British colony and its current status as a cosmopolitan financial hub. As such, you'll find imposing Christian churches standing alongside ornate Taoist temples, and chaotic traditional markets in the shadows of soaring skyscrapers. Hong Kong holiday rentals range from simple studio apartments to spacious beachfront family houses, so you're bound to find your ideal home-away-from-home.

Things to do

Fun for all the family in Hong Kong

For some of the most breathtaking urban vistas you'll find anywhere on the planet, take a tram up to the top of Victoria Peak, Hong Kong Island's highest mountain. From here, you can marvel at an intense concentration of iconic skyscrapers, and the verdant hillsides of the New Territories that lie on the horizon. Whether you're travelling with kids or are a kid-at-heart yourself, a day at Hong Kong Disneyland is a must. Here you can enjoy nerve-shredding thrill rides, immersive kid-friendly attractions, colourful parades and lavish live shows, all inspired by your favourite classic Disney films and characters.


Sensational shopping and classic cocktails in Hong Kong

One of Hong Kong's favourite pastimes is undoubtedly shopping. Its interconnected, blissfully air-conditioned malls are so ubiquitous, it's possible to traverse great swathes of the city without ever setting foot outside. But if you want a change from the usual big international brands, explore the city's vibrant street markets, where you can pick up everything from Chinese antiques, to bargain-priced electronic goods, to pungent dried seafood. Once you've stashed your purchases safely in your Hong Kong holiday rental, it's time to explore the eclectic local bar scene. You can take your pick from hip brew pubs, chic cocktail lounges, or raucous sports bars, before heading on to a pulsing club to dance the night away.


Sizzling summer days in Hong Kong

Hong Kong enjoys a subtropical climate. The summer months of June to August are hot, but thunderstorms are also common, and the humidity can be intense at times. Widespread air-conditioning and a first-rate public transport network ensure this shouldn't impair your enjoyment, but you may prefer to visit between September and November, when the weather is generally dry, sunny and pleasantly warm. Winters are generally mild and occasionally chilly. As long as you avoid the busy Christmas period, this is also a prime time to find good deals on Hong Kong holiday rentals.

Natural features

Life's a beach in Hong Kong

Hong Kong may conjure up images of endless urban sprawl, but in fact around 70% of its land is undeveloped. Within easy reach of the city centre, you'll find no end of spectacular hiking trails, which will lead you across rocky coastlines, through fragrant forests and up verdant mountainsides. There's also an abundance of blissful, golden-sand beaches, from ever-bustling hotspots like Golden Beach, to under-the-radar gems like Lo So Shing.
