Hong Kong
Hong Kong

Along with New York, London and Tokyo, Hong Kong is one of the fastest-paced metropolises in the world. Once a cluster of quiet fishing villages scattered across islands, starting in the mid-19th century Hong Kong transformed into a major trade port and later an international financial center under British rule. A Special Administrative Region of mainland China since 1997, Hong Kong remains a frenetic financial hub with a combination of modern, towering skyscrapers and remnants of its fishing village past.

About this Journey

Enjoy the luxury of a bygone era in the heart of a modern metropolis.
Discover a glittering skyline and pulsing financial hub sitting within the embrace of natural wilderness. The hustle and bustle of a rustic Chinese market hidden between futuristic skyscrapers and shy fishing villages tucked just out of view of the inescapable influence of the city’s colonial past. Hong Kong is a city of exhilarating contrasts, awaiting your discovery at every turn

What we love
  • See the sun set over Victoria Harbor on a private junk boat
