High-rise culture in cosmopolitan Hong Kong

Just south of mainland China, between the delta of the Pearl River and the South China Sea, Hong Kong is a bustling financial hub, and 1 of East Asia's most vibrant cultural centres. Despite its proximity to major cities like Shenzhen, Guangzhou and Macau, the autonomous Chinese territory retains a culture uniquely its own, strongly influenced by years of British colonial rule. You can find everything from art museums and contemporary architecture to world-class amusement parks, ancient sites and upscale shopping. You won't have any trouble finding Hong Kong vacation rentals offering easy access to all the region's top sights.

Things to do

We are amused – Hong Kong's theme parks and beyond

No slouch when it comes to culture, Hong Kong's amusement parks are right up there with the world's best, too. Hong Kong Disneyland is a big hit with families – with plenty of rides, entertainment, dining and games, visitors of all ages will find something their speed within the 27-hectare park. If that's not enough, you can also check out Ocean Park Hong Kong, where you can explore more than 90 hectares of live animal shows, roller coasters and wildlife exhibits, complete with an aquarium and other habitats.


Suit yourself – a shopping bonanza in Hong Kong

No matter what you're looking for, odds are you can find it in Hong Kong. Style lovers can find everything from Savile Row-style bespoke tailoring and global designer brands to bustling night markets and one-of-a-kind boutiques. Entertainment is a major draw, too, and culture vultures can catch symphony orchestras, live local bands and major sporting events all throughout the city. And if sightseeing's your thing, you're in luck – with plenty of ancient sites, monumental sculptures and killer city views, Hong Kong's got so much to see that even long-time residents haven't seen it all.


See you (mon)soon – Hong Kong's subtropical climate

Winters are sunny and mild, with average highs around 19 degrees in January and February. Summer and autumn are the area's busiest times, and you'll usually have the best luck scoring killer deals on Hong Kong vacation rentals during the slow, overcast spring season.
