Hong Kong, Hong Kong

Hong Kong
Hong Kong

Hong Kong is a special administrative region of China. This city was once controlled by Great Britain before being returned to China in 1997. This important financial center was developed on a small territory, with many skyscrapers and is densely populated. From the top of Victoria Peak you will have a breathtaking view of this forest of towers.

The city is made of three districts: the Kowlong Peninsula, the New Territories and Hong Kong Island which is the financial center. Hong Kong is continually changing and buzzing with activities. You can easily spend a few days there. It is a city that we like to visit again in order to witness its evolution.

Where is located the Port of Hong Kong Cruise Terminal

The port of Hong Kong has two cruise terminals. One is located at the bottom of Victoria Bay where Hong Kong Airport once stood. The Kai Tak cruise terminal, with its very modern architecture, is reminiscent of an airport. You will need to take a taxi or shuttle to the centre of the city. A green roof is located on the building.

The Ocean Terminal is located closer to the activities, a shopping center and the Star Ferry. Nearby, walking on the Kowloon waterfront, you will have a view of the financial center of Hong Kong Island. In the evening people gather there for the light show on the buildings of the city.
