A Bustling and Charismatic City

Hong Kong has gone through a turbulent modern period. A stroll through the city reveals a rich variety of its faces, from classic English-style buildings to modern skyscrapers, Chinese-style temples, and bustling markets. Repulse Bay, the setting of the film “Love is a Many-Splendored Thing,” the Avenue of Stars, with its handprints and statues of Hong Kong movie stars, and Stanley Market, where you can find souvenirs unique to Hong Kong, are must-visit spots. Hong Kong is also famous for its night view. The view of the harbor from Victoria Peak, which rises 550 meters above sea level, is one of the three most beautiful night views in the world.
