    ABOUT CITY

    Positioned at the mouth of the Pearl River Delta on the coast of southern China, Hong Kong’s geographical position as a gateway between the East and West has made it an attractive centre for international trade. As a reflection of this, the heart of Asia’s world city has always been the bustling and beautiful Victoria Harbour. Hong Kong Island lies to the south of the harbour, while the Kowloon Peninsula forms its northern shores. To the north of Kowloon lies the New Territories, which stretch all the way to Mainland China. Hong Kong is also home to more than 200 Outlying Islands, including Lantau Island, where Hong Kong International Airport is located. 

    HKG is famous for shopping, dining, amusement park, beautiful landscape as well as culture & heritage experience especially with her historical background with China & the West. It’s fun to visit HKG throughout the year as you will find different festivals that you will find it great to experience.
