Hong Kong is officially a part of China, but it sure is a different world from the mainland. The whole range of life is represented here, from glamorous high society life on Hong Kong Island to the darkest corner of Mong Kok in Kowloon, where the density of people is beyond belief. The neon lit city is famous for shopping and fine dining, but nothing comes cheap here. Gawk at all the luxury brand stores, some you probably didn't even know existed, or get lost in the more trashy part of Tsim Sha Tsui. Go to the beach or take a hike in the hills, or gulp in all the iconic Hong Kong of high-rises, malls and neon signs.
