    Hong Kong is Asia’s premier tourist destination. This compact and futuristic city has it all – stunning natural features, cultural attractions and endless shopping opportunities. If you’re looking for a crash course in Asian culture, then look no further. Hong Kong is a veritable melting pot of people and is home to significant populations stemming from Korea, Vietnam, Indonesia, Japan, the Philippines and mainland China. Mixed in with it all is Hong Kong’s own unique cultural heritage, which has been influenced by its colonial background.
