The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People's Republic of China is much more than a harbor city. The traveler weary of its crowded streets may be tempted to describe it as “Hong Kong crete”. Yet, this SAR with its cloudy mountains and rocky islands is mostly a rural landscape.
Much of the countryside is classified as Country Park and, although 7 million people are never far away, it is possible to find pockets of wilderness that will reward the more intrepid tourist. Hong Kong has a sub tropical climate with at least one season to match your comfort zone. Boasting one of the world’s best airports, it is the ideal stopover for those who wish to travel deeper into the Orient.
