Seven million inhabitants, 260 islands and more skyscrapers than any other metropolis. It is not for nothing that travelers are overwhelmed by the impressive Hong Kong.
Hong Kong International Airport (HKG) is the international airport of Hong Kong. It is located on the artificial island of Chep Lak Kop from which it also owes its name. The airport is an important gateway to numerous destinations in China and the rest of Asia. It is one of the largest airports in terms of passenger numbers and the largest in terms of cargo flights.
Flying with Emirates is often seen as one of the best flying experiences (especially in business class). The airline from the United Arab Emirates is home to Dubai International Airport. From this airport, Emirates operates flights to more than 154 cities in more than 81 countries on all continents. Emirates has been around since 1985 and is the third largest airline in the world.
China Airlines is Taiwan's largest airline and has its headquarters and home base at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport in Taipei. The airline operates more than 1,400 flights a week to 118 airports in 115 cities in Asia, Europe, North America and Oceania. It is a member of the SkyTeam alliance, which includes KLM.
KLM operates a direct flight from Amsterdam to Hong Kong on a daily basis. The flight route takes 11 hours and 15 minutes. Cathay Pacific, Virgin Airways and British Airways fly from Hong Kong to Hong Kong in 11 hours and 55 minutes.
Victoria Peak is one of the top sights of Hong Kong. Literally perhaps, because this mountain top on Hong Kong island offers a panoramic view of the Hong Kong skyline. Walking is an option, but we also highly recommend the historic tram that leads all the way to the top.
The Mong Kok district is known as one of the busiest in the world. Navigating the many streets is therefore quite a challenge, but the Ladies Market, a kilometer-long market is a good reason to get lost in this.
This natural harbor is located between Hong Kong Island and Kowloon. Due to its strategic location it was very important as a trade center during the British colonization period.
This iconic monument is better known as the Big Buddha, a 34 meter high statue of Buddha. Visitors must overcome no fewer than 268 steps to reach the base.
The mecca for the party traveler. With over 90 restaurants and bars, this is the place to be on Friday and Saturday for fun.
Flying to Hong Kong is not immediately environmentally friendly, but there is no other way. Yet you can still make your journey sustainable by making the right choices while traveling. Public transport, for example, is among the best in the world, even though it is not expensive. Make use of the iconic ding thing, the double-deckers where you can enjoy the view while you move slowly through the city. The Star Ferry is another means of transport that can be seen as a unique local experience.
