With its fabled urban landscape and vibrant Chinese culture, Hong Kong is one of the world's most exciting cities. Whether you want to take a bay cruise on the Star Ferry, eat and shop your way around Kowloon, or find peace at an atmospheric temple, Insight City Guide Hong Kong will make sure you have the quintessential Hong Kong experience. Features by local writers delve into topics including the city's dim sum tradition, Chinese medicine, and the local love of horse racing, while evocative accounts of Hong Kong's districts bring the city to life, from the dramatic vistas of the Peak to the shops and bars of lively Wan Chai and Causeway Bay, and the beaches and monasteries of the outlying territories and islands. Full-color photography and maps help you navigate with ease and our detailed Travel Tips gives you all the practical information you need to plan your trip, including our selection of the best and most authentic hotel and restaurants.
