Holidays to Hong Kong Island, Hong Kong

Regularly rated one of the top cities in the world, Hong Kong is brimming with glimmering skyscrapers and a buzzing atmosphere - and none more so than on Hong Kong Island. As the financial hub of the territory, this is Canary Wharf multiplied by ten. One of its most iconic landmarks is the Bank of China (BOC) Tower, and the Central Plaza, which offers free views over the city from the 46th floor. The island's strangest (but oddly interesting) attraction is the Central-Mid Levels Escalator system that ferries thousands of commuters to work each day. The complete set of escalators runs for 800 metre through the Central district, climbing a total of 135 metres. The system's free and takes around 25 minutes one-way - a great way to save tired feet.

Top of your must-do list is a visit to Victoria Peak, the highest point on the island (though not Hong Kong). Rising 552 metres above the harbour below, the 125-year-old Peak Tram funicular climbs its way at a perilous angle for 8 minutes up the hillside to take you to the visitor centre and Peak Tower. For a different experience, you can wind your way along hairpin bends on the number 15 bus. The 50 kilometre Hong Kong Trail also starts on the Peak, passing through the five country parks of Hong Kong Island. This series of hiking trails offer superb vistas of the city and there are 8 different routes to choose from.

I became fluent in Mandarin during my time living, studying and working in China. From there I travelled to every corner of China. Beijing is my favourite city, I love finding amazing places to eat and trying new dishes.
