Gazing across Hong Kong’s Victoria Harbour at the famous city skyline today, with its ranks of skyscrapers receding into misty the hills behind and junks bobbing around in the foreground, it’s hard to comprehend that a little over a century-and-a half ago, Hong Kong was merely a ‘barren rock’ off China’s south coast. Now one of the world’s leading financial centres, it remains a cultural melting pot and enthralling city to explore.
Follow the aroma of incense to discover a Taoist temple; duck out of the rain into a steaming noodle canteen or dim sum restaurant for an unforgettably delicious meal. Or jump on a ferry to the settlement of Aberdeen, where sampans dodge among the trawlers in the harbour, and fishermen in conical hats preside over piles of exotic seafood, from jellyfish tentacles to crabs the size of tennis rackets.
