Hong Kong is a fascinating fusion of the East and the West, combining the mystery of the Orient with the avant-garde vibe of the West. Its dramatic, jagged skyline, best seen from Victoria Peak or the harbor, is accentuated by the daily Symphony of Lights show by night. The city’s rich medley of cultures — British, Chinese, Cantonese, Jewish, Indian and Shanghainese — lends it a complex, exotic character. The city is known for its lively food scene – from Cantonese dim sum to extravagant high tea, and shopping, from the chaotic Temple Street Night Market to the city’s innumerable bespoke tailors. A tram ride up the impossibly steep Victoria Peak offers fascinating, aerial views of the cityscape. Walk down the famous Tsim Sha Tsui promenade past the colonial-era Clock Tower, to catch the pulse of enigmatic Hong Kong.
Hong Kong’s climate is subtropical and leans towards temperate for nearly half the year. Here is an overview on the climate, the best time to visit and what to pack for your tour.
Harbour Plaza 8 Degrees is located in the East Kowloon peninsula, close to Mong Kok and the Kai Tak pier. Admire the impressive lobby, innovatively designed to give you an optical illusion of being inside the Leaning Tower of Pisa in Italy.
