 Location overview Situated in a geographically and culturally distinct part of China, Hong Kong has long served as a gateway between the East and the West. Hong Kong's enchanting neighbourhoods and islands offer a sensory feast. You may find yourself swaying along on a historic double-decker tram, cheering with the hordes at the city-centre horse races, or simply gazing out at the glorious harbour. Hong Kong has a complexity that defies definition. It's the only place where you can be searching for colonial military relics near the Chinese border, trying to decipher the aesthetics of Chinese Revival architecture, or splurging on the best shopping the world has to offer – all within five hours – followed by a night of Cantonese opera, karaoke or poetry, anywhere one chooses.
