Hong Kong Destination guide

As the world leader in travel experiences since 1947, we connect you to the real Hong Kong in a way like no other. At first glance, Hong Kong is a teeming metropolis with impressive skyscrapers, modern architecture and busy neon streets. Underneath the metal sheen, the city has a vibrant culture and fabled history. It’s this mix of Chinese roots, remnants of the British colonization and modern growth that form a whirling east-meets-west hybrid. Journey with us on our Hong Kong group tour package as we uncover tradition by the temple steps, from the peaceful Lo Pin Monastery to the seaside A- Ma Temple. We’ll journey to a time when Hong Kong was just a backwater Chinese fishing village and tour the Aberdeen Fishing Village to experience the ever-floating houseboats of the Tanka people. Then, fast-forward as we admire the towering skyline by the bustling waterfront, and eat local delicacies in a city renowned for its culinary class. A unique melting pot of history and technology, Hong Kong is a genuinely compelling city. Travel with us and unlock the infinite possibilities thanks to our exclusive Trafalgar Highlights.

A phrasebook

While most local people speak excellent English, it’s always nice to learn a little of their language. Take a phrasebook (or download an app) and try your hand at a bit of Cantonese for simple things like ordering food.

A rain jacket

Hong Kong is notorious for its rain, no matter the time of year. Always be prepared with a rain jacket in your backpack so you can keep exploring the city, even in the wet.

Dress shirts

With plenty of high-end restaurants on offer, you might want to pack a fancy dress shirt, so you fit in during a classy night out on the town.

Good walking shoes

The transport can be a little expensive in Hong Kong, so save some HK and explore the city by the sidewalk. Good walking shoes will also come in handy for all those temple steps, and mountain walks on your Hong Kong tour package.
