With its exhilarating fusion of cultures, its engaging people and unparalleled natural beauty,
Hong Kong is like no other place in the world. Adventure to remote islands with intriguing,
century-old Chinese traditions. Explore spectacular museums, galleries and historical monuments.
Find divine inspiration in a traditional Buddhist temple. Experience the contagious energy of the
city; mingle with the people in a colorful local market or a boisterous Chinese festival.
For a unique cultural experience, head to the Yuen Po Street Bird Garden, the favorite gathering
place for Hong Kong's songbird owners… for sweet scents and exotic, fortune-bringing flowers
and plants, stop by Hong Kong's colorful Flower Market.
Bring home a beautiful memory of Hong Kong from the Jade Market. Located in Yau Ma Tei, the
Jade Market features 450 stalls selling all types, shapes, sizes and prices; open daily from 10am –
3:30pm. No matter what you choose, Hong Kong is an experience you will never forget.
