Luxurious Hong Kong Packages

Of all the European imperialist powers, it was the Portuguese who first set their sights on Southern China in the sixteenth century, a move which led to military incursions. Following the expulsion of all foreigners, it was the British who next developed profitable trade relations with China during the eighteenth century exporting opium. However hostilities erupted into the now famous Opium Wars, which ultimately resulted in the various regions which now constitute Hong Kong being individually ceded to Britain by 1898. A century later in 1997, the sovereignty of Hong Kong was returned to China. Today, Hong Kong beats with a vibrant, pulsating heart as one of the globe’s great destinations – a towering metropolis punctuated by a famous harbour.

Best times to go to Hong Kong

The weather in Hong Kong makes visiting the city possible year round. Summers, however, are hot and humid with temperatures rising on average to around 31 degrees. In winter the mercury peaks at around 18 degrees. Rainfall is more likely in summer but nothing that significantly prevents exploration.
 
Hong Kong celebrates Chinese New Year in spectacular fashion with lion dances, fireworks and parades. The Spring Lantern Festival is a beautiful traditional Chinese festival. Other significant cultural festivals include the Hong Kong Arts Festival, the Hong Kong International Film Festival and the Man Literary Festival.

Where to stay in Hong Kong

As an international centre for business, finance, transport and tourism, Hong Kong boasts many world class hotels, all with impeccable service standards. Well known hotel brands offer high rise luxury along both sides of the harbour, on Hong Kong Island and Kowloon. Most of these hotels are near major tourist attractions and are easily accessible to public transport for maximum convenience.

Travellers will also find a variety of four-star rated hotels on Lantau Island just a short distance from the airport. While many visitors to Hong Kong stay for short visits while in transit, these hotels offer comfortable lodging in a convenient location.

Exploring Asia With Azamara Club Cruises

Azamara Club Cruises’ focus on “destination immersion” was obvious throughout my 14-night voyage from Singapore to Hong Kong on Azamara Quest. With just 698 passengers the ship’s small size translates to more time in port – more overnights in the heart of the destination, night touring options and late night departures. The ability to go up river to Bangkok compared to...
