Fly to Hong Kong Cheap
Hong Kong is comprised of Hong Kong Island, Kowloon and the new territories. In the modern, flourishing city of Hong Kong you will find impressive skyscrapers, the offices of major financial companies, the headquarters of multi-national companies and high-end shops. Hong Kong is an overwhelming experience, navigating its teeming tightly packed streets with their neon signs, steam-filled canteens and general noise can be quite daunting. However, it is also a city to delight in and it is fantastically well organised and safe. There are thousands of flights to Hong Kong each year and visitors can always sample something new, whether it is shredded jellyfish or dawn Tai chi. For excitement join the crowds at the city centre horse races or head for the country and you can find remote mountain peaks, deserted islands and beautiful beaches.
The peak tourist season used to be spring and autumn, but today tourists visit all year round, although September to February is recommended, as the climate is more moderate during this period. If you are looking for flights to Hong Kong during festivals book early to avoid disappointment. Bear in mind that during Chinese New Year many restaurants and shops close. A number of budget airlines such as AirAsia offer cheap flights to Hong Kong.
If pampering is your style then Hong Kong will not disappoint; this city offers the ultimate luxuries that only somewhere used to catering to the moneyed elite can. However, Hong Kong still has much to offer those on more limited budgets. Often, the most precious memories are something simple, such as a $2 tram ride, a visit to a beautiful temple or savouring fishing village seafood and sundowners.
The Peak is one of the most popular attractions in Hong Kong. Once the preserve of the elite, tourists can now visit the area on the Peak Tram. The tram climbs through 1, 200ft pulled by steel cables at an angle that is so steep the buildings appear to be leaning at 45 degrees. The summit offers spectacular views of the city, Victoria Harbour and Kowloon. Victoria Harbour is one of three natural deepwater harbours in the world and was vital in the development of Hong Kong as a commercial centre. Today it is still as important and is a bustling hive of activity, day and night. Take a night-time cruise abroad a ferry to appreciate the Symphony of Lights, a stunning multimedia show that features over 40 of Hong Kong's skyscrapers.
