What to See & Do in Hong Kong

When you think about Hong Kong, only sky scrapers and department stores come to mind? That`s wrong! While most people have about Central District with its impressive buildings, Victoria Peak, and perhaps even the interesting ladder streets with their small shops and stalls, or about Nathan Road in Kowloon, only a few know before their visit that Hong Kong is surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery in Southern China, for instance the mountains and temples in the New Territories, the idyllic islands of Lamma and Lantau (the latter houses the Po Lin monastery with one of the largest Buddhas statues in the world). And is there anything to see in the southern part of Hong Kong Island?

Other Issues

What has changed in Hong Kong after the Take-Over? Do you now need a visa? (And can you get a visa for mainland China in Hong Kong?) Do you tip taxi drivers? Should you take traveller`s cheques or credit cards? How much do things cost? Hong Kong is known as a shopper`s paradiese. Is that true? Read more at Currency, Tipping & Shopping. Are there any healthrisks? What about crime? Is Hong Kong a safe city? What about food?
