“Hi, I’m Rudy Maxa, venturing to 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 world’s 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 skyline unfolds above the harbor, your heart is sure to beat a little faster. No doubt about it, there’s something exciting here. From futuristic skyscrapers to incense-filled temples, from hoards of shoppers to bobbing wooden boats, the many faces of China are revealed in this dramatic Pacific Rim city.

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

The city anchors on the southwest corner of China. We’ll explore the downtown core that straddles Hong Kong Island and the Kowloon Peninsula. Then we will escape the crowds as we visit Sao Kung Park, Lantau Island and some historic sites in the new territories.

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

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