Grand Tour of China
Discover the distinctive and incomparable aspects of ancient and modern China, the world’s oldest continuous civilisation, from its exotic culture to spectacular scenery and fascinating cities
Hong Kong (“Fragrant Harbour”) has much to offer visitors, with its mix of Chinese and cosmopolitan atmosphere, its expansive skyline, visually stunning harbour, limitless shopping opportunities, myriad restaurants and a backdrop of ceaseless bustling activity.
Now termed as Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China, its early history was defined by its cession to Great Britain following the First Opium War that ultimately turned it into a major commercial and financial centre, its wealth and modernity contrasting with China’s slower development. The Colony was returned to China in 1997 but has managed to retain a degree of independence, but most importantly its unique bright character.
