Hong Kong

Hong Kong — Designated a Special Administrative Region (SAR) of China after the British handed it back in 1997, Hong Kong is a study in opposites: colonial, historical buildings nuzzle up against cutting-edge skyscrapers, while the entire city stands starkly against lush, green mountains and the jewel-blue buffer of the surrounding South China Sea.

Why Go

For a mix of high-rises and mountains and to experience the blend of cultures from British colonial to ancient Chinese.
