Sik Sik Yuen Wong Tai Sin Temple

 
Sik Sik Yuen Wong Tai Sin Temple The Wong Tai Sin Temple claim to make every wish come true upon request might have something to do with its popularity. Home to three religions (Taoism, Buddhism and Confucianism) its natural setting and beautifully ornamented buildings make it as much a scenic attraction as an important religious centre.Wong Tai Sin Temple can be regarded as typical or traditional Chinese style temple. Grand red pillars, blue friezes, multi-colored carvings, yellow latticework and the magnificent golden roof are admired not only by historians and architects, but also by visitors and worshippers.Covering 18,000 square metres and located in a tranquil natural setting remote from the nearby housing estates and the bustle of their street...
 

Hong Kong

 
Hong Kong Hong Kong's position as Asia's world city is built on its role as the gateway to the mainland of China and a hub for business in the Asia-Pacific region. This position is supported by a community which values freedom, generates opportunities and rewards creativity and entrepreneurship. As one of the world's great cosmopolitan cities, Hong Kong's continued success will increasingly depend on an ability to add value in the economic, social and cultural spheres to meet the needs of the people of Hong Kong, in the Mainland and internationally. Hong Kong is one of the most riveting and unexpectedly beautiful spectacles on earth. Two minutes walk from the bustle of Central reveals a harbour view that the architectural boom ...
 

Hong Kong Island

 
Hong Kong Island Hong Kong Island is the glitzy big brother of Kowloon - a tightly packed, towering paean to market capitalism that hasn't been dented one jot by Chinese rule. The bustle of people living and working is the biggest attraction on the island, although many visitors head around to Aberdeen, on the southern side of the island, where 6000 people live or work on junks anchored in the harbour. Sampan tours of the Aberdeen Harbour are definitely worth the expense. The other major draw is the floating resturant The most popular beach is Repulse Bay, also on the southern side of the island, but itgets extremely crowded on weekends. Stanley, with its laid-back atmosphere, is another good spot for escaping Hong Kong's hustle an...
 

Ha Kowloon

 
Ha Kowloon Ha Kowloon is one of the four parts that makes the Hong Kong territory these days. The tip of the peninsula, which faces Hong Kong island, is probably the best known part of Kowloon. It is one big melting pot of streets crawling with shops and tourists, covered up under a spell of neon at night. In this sense, the 'nine dragons' (the literal translation of 'Kowloon') beat the touristy tiger of the neighbouring Hong Kong island! Although it might appear as if money is the only ruling factor here, the current 'Hong Kong Cultural Centre' tries to prove the opposite. Most museums are located in this centre and it offers a good alternative when you have had it with the jade shops, bird markets and fortune-tellerstands ...
 

Lantau Island

 
Lantau Island Lantau Island is twice as big as Hong Kong Island but far less densely populated. The government decided that it was time to enliven Lantau and made plans for a major airport that was finished in 1998. These days, it is very easily accessible by both ferry (nice trip!) and plane. The airport was only the beginning of the island's metamorphosis. An old monastery and the enormous Buddha (the largest outdoor Buddha in the world) sits amidst tea plantations and green mountain peaks. The older sites such has the monastery have to compete with modern inventions such as Waterworld, Science City, a theme park dedicated to Chinese customs, and Hong Kong Disneyland....
 

New Territories

 
New Territories The mainland north of Kowloon, including some small islands, is known as the New Territories. Although a third of Hong Kong's population lives in new towns constructed in the New Territories, the area has some scenic escapes, including the Sai Kung Peninsula, in the east, which is an unspoilt playground for hikers, campers, swimmers and boaters. Bird-watchers head to the Mai Po Marsh; cyclists and walkers head to Plover Cove Reservoir; hiking enthusiasts set out on the 100km-long MacLehose Trail which spans the New Territories from Tuen Mun in the west to Pak Tam Chung in the east. The Kam Tim walled villages are quite touristy but at the same time offer a good insight into how life used to be in the 16th centur...
 

Outlying Islands

 
Outlying Islands There are 235 outlying islands, many of them little more than uninhabited rocks. However, Cheung Chau (Long Island) (2.5 sq km) has 22,000 residents and is fast developing into a mini Honolulu, although there is no big motorised traffic. People usually get around by walking or with bikes. Attractions include the beaches and Cheung Po Tsai's Cave, the now abandoned hide out of the pirate Cheung Po Tsai, who lived back when Hong Kong was still a small fishing village. Lantau, the largest of the islands (142 sq km/55 sq mi) has a population of 45,000, a 933m (3060ft) peak, and a 70km (43mi) walking trail, but has avoided many of the development excesses of other islands. It is home to several important monasteries, in...
