Welcome to China

China, the king of Asia, is simultaneously ancient and futuristic; rural and metropolitan; traditional and cosmopolitan. In a land of paradoxes, culture and cuisine project a distinct identity enhanced by vast landscapes and iconic landmarks. Tick off a New Seven Wonder of the World at the Great Wall of China; soak up Hong Kong's unique island culture; and immerse yourself in attractions such as the Temple of Heaven, Tiananmen Square, and Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding, a nonprofit dedicated to the preservation of the endangered species. Each city, be it Shanghai, Beijing, or Xi'an, offers fine food, lively entertainment, and rich history.

Top 15 attractions in China

Ladies Market

Mong Kok’s Ladies Market is one of Hong Kong’s most legendary street markets. Its name originates from the large amount of women's clothing and accessories for sale, but that’s not all you’ll find. A little less than a mile long, the market is crammed with all manner of clothing stalls and accessories for men, women, and children, as well as goldfish, electronics, household items, and just about anything else money can buy.More

Ngong Ping 360

The Ngong Ping 360 connects Tung Chung to Ngong Ping plateau, home to the iconic Big Buddha, Po Lin Monastery, and Ngong Ping Village. Opened in 2006, the cable car provides easy access to the hillside attractions, and its views of Lantau Island and beyond have made the gondola journey itself a tourist attraction in its own right.More

Flower Market Road

Located in Mongkok, Flower Market Road is one of the most colorful and fragrant roads in the city. At the Hong Kong Flower Market, located here, you’ll find everything from delicate orchids and bonsai trees to succulents, exotic plants, and fresh-cut flowers, as well as seeds, containers, accessories, and gardening and floral supplies.More

Big Buddha (Tian Tan Buddha)

Lantau Island’s Big Buddha (Tian Tan Buddha) is a huge bronze seated Buddha at 112 feet (34 meters) tall. The statue is a popular pilgrimage site for travelers from Asia and around the globe who climb the 268 steps leading to its base for panoramic views of the South China Sea.More

Victoria Peak (The Peak)

Overlooking the Central district on Hong Kong Island, Victoria Peak (The Peak) is one of the best vantage points for stupendous views of Victoria Harbour and Hong Kong’s skyscrapers. Rising 1,810 feet (552 meters), the mountain is topped with a 360-degree Sky Terrace viewing platform and the Peak Tower complex of shops and restaurants. There’s also a network of nature trails through lush tropical forest.More

Mong Kok

The Mong Kok district in Kowloon is one of the busiest and most densely populated areas in the world. Known for its lively street markets, massive shopping malls, a seemingly endless array of food options, as well as billboards, neon, and people everywhere, it’s also a great place to experience local Hong Kong culture.More

Sheung Wan

Located just west of Central, Sheung Wan is one of the hippest districts in Hong Kong. One of the oldest neighborhoods in the city, Sheung Wan is a vibrant mix of trendy coffee shops, restaurants, bars, clubs, boutiques, antique shops, art galleries, and creative spaces, as well as more traditional shops, markets, and temples.More

Victoria Harbour

Dividing Hong Kong Island from Kowloon, Victoria Harbour has long been the lifeblood of the city. It is from these waters—often teeming with a motley mix of traditional and modern vessels—that the city’s twin skylines are best viewed. The harbor is historically responsible for the city that surrounds it as well; its deep and sheltered waters situated strategically on the South China Sea have directly contributed to Hong Kong’s rise as a major world trading center.More


Situated on the mainland facing Hong Kong Island across Victoria Harbour, Kowloon represents Hong Kong’s jam-packed, slightly grittier side with highlights including night markets, museums, and shopping. The districts of Kowloon rank among the most interesting in the city, offering a glimpse at what working class Hong Kong is all about; the Yau Ma Tei and Mong Kok districts are densely populated.More

Tai O

The fishing village of Tai O, located on the western coast of Lantau Island, is known for its traditional culture and seafaring way of life. Once a bustling trade port, the village features stilt houses, seafood markets, and graded buildings that provide insight into a Hong Kong of the past, while its street food, cafes, and wildlife-watching boat tours keep it a popular destination today.More

Mutianyu Great Wall

The Mutianyu Great Wall was fully restored in the 1980s as an alternative to the increasingly popular Badaling section of the Great Wall of China. The Mutianyu section is farther away from Beijing (about an hour and a half by car) than more popular sections, but it's also significantly less busy and features some fun, modern amusements, such as a cable car, chairlift, and toboggan. The long, flat segment—the longest fully restored section open to travelers—winds along heavily forested hilltops with 23 ancient watchtowers dotting the landscape.More

Man Mo Temple

One of the oldest and most famous temples in Hong Kong, Man Mo Temple in Sheung Wan isdedicated to Man Cheong, god of literature, and Mo Tai, god of war. A mainstay of the community, this Taoist and Buddhist temple reflects social and religious practices in Hong Kong and offers a respite to the hustle and bustle of the city.More

Wan Chai

Set between Central and Causeway Bay, Wan Chai became notorious for its red-light district. Though some of that remains, today the destination is known for its vibrant mix of shopping, dining, entertainment, and nightlife. This is one of the oldest areas in Hong Kong, offering plenty of history and heritage.More


Hong Kong’s trendy SoHo is known for its contrasting architecture and vibrant nightlife, blending natural features, traditional Chinese culture, and colonial design. Popular with locals and internationals alike, the entertainment district offers bars, restaurants, and clubs with a range of cuisine and amusements.More

Hollywood Road

The second-oldest road in Hong Kong, Hollywood Road runs for 0.62 miles (1 kilometer) from Sheung Wan in the west, past trendy SoHo, and through to Central in the east. It’s home to a plethora of antique shops, art galleries, and boutiques, as well as a lively and growing assortment of hip restaurants, bars, clubs, and boutique hotels.More
