“Hi, I’m Rudy Maxa, venturing the shores of Asia and one of the world’s most thrilling destinations. We are about to discover why great travel experiences are made in Hong Kong. Next stop, it’s Hong Kong on Smart Travels.”

Smart Travels is a grand tour of the great destinations, the people, places, and unique local flavors. Now tips, trips and secret places on Smart Travels Pacific rim.

When you catch your first glimpse of Hong Kong and the sky line unfolds above the harbor, your heart is sure to beat a little faster. No doubt about that, there is something exciting here. From futuristic skyscrapers to incense-filled temples, from hoards of shoppers to bobbing wooden boats, the many faces of China are reviewed in this dramatic Pacific Rim city.

“Hong Kong is a magnificent balancing art, effortlessly juggling east and west, past and present, commerce and mysticism. Although, it’s a prized colony in the British empire until 1997, Hong Kong is firmly rooted in Chinese culture.”

The city anchors on the Southwest of the corner of China. We’ll explore the down town core that straddles Hong Kong island and the Kowloon Peninsula. Then we’ll escape the crowd as we visit the SaiKung park, Lantau island, and some historic sites in the new territories.

Westerners find Hong Kong an easy introduction to Asia. Arriving the city’s ultramodern airport, you’ll quickly discover there are all signs here, as well as in the city, are written in both English and Chinese, and most businesses cater to English speakers.

To begin, we will hit Hong Kong’s number one tourist attraction, the train that climbs the Victoria Peak. This is the world’s steepest funicular railway, and it feels like it.
