Hong Kong has 5000 years of Chinese culture and only 150 years of colonial rule. The gateway to China, Hong Kong has lost none if its appeal since the hand over in 1997. Hong Kong Island, the birth place of the former British colony offers a spectacular skyline, while a Star Ferry ride across the magnificent harbour brings you to vibrant Kowloon, offering a fascinating mix of streets, malls and markets.
Hong Kong receives direct flights from around the world. There is a dedicated rail link, the Airport Express that offers the quickest route to the city in just 24 minutes. The MTR system offers connections to all parts of the city. We can arrange for you to be met on arrival at Hong Kong International Airport and transferred to your chosen accommodation.
