Hotels in Hong Kong offer incredible glimpses upon an area nicknamed the “Pearl of the Orient”. A special Chinese administrative district, Hong Kong is known for its impressive skyline, its harbors, its restaurants, its nightlife, its mix of old traditions and new vibes, its natural surroundings and its architecture. Equipped with one of the world’s best public transportation systems, the area is easily accessible, especially from the hotels in Hong Kong found below. Before we get to hotels in Hong Kong, let’s take a look at some background information on the area to help you along the way.
Archaeological evidence suggests that people have inhabited the Hong Kong area for over 35,000 years. The area was first incorporated into China by way of the Qin dynasty circa 214 BCE. Portuguese explorer Jorge Álvares became the first European to visit the area in 1513. The Canton System was introduced in 1757 in order to regulate trade. In 1842, Hong Kong became a colony of the British Empire, which influenced the area’s significant economic expansion. The territory was transferred to China in 1997, becoming a special administrative region with a separate governing and economic system than that of the mainland.
Hong Kong, officially the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China, sits on the Pearl River estuary in southern China. One of the most densely populated places in the world, Hong Kong is home to around 7.5 million people and has the largest number of skyscrapers of any city in the world. The area’s summers are hot and humid whereas winters are mild and typically sunny. Snowfall is rare. Hong Kong benefits from a capitalist mixed service economy, with low taxation and minimal government market intervention, emphasizing economic liberty and the rule of law. Over half the city’s population identifies itself as “Hongkongers”, while only around 10 percent consider itself “Chinese”. Restaurants, nightlife, cinema, music, business and sports are Hong Kong’s main attractions. Major points of interest include the International Commerce Centre, Two International Finance Centre, Flagstaff House, Tin Hau Temple, Ping Shan Heritage Trail, Lui Seng Chun, Blue House, Hong Kong Stock Exchange, Avenue of Stars, the University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong Cultural Centre, Happy Valley Racecourse and Hong Kong Stadium. Three forms of gambling are legal in Hong Kong, which include the lottery, horse and football betting. Popular foods include pork, goose, chicken, seafood, wontons and dim sim, which is a Cantonese, bite-sized steamed dumping. A popular alcoholic drink is known as baijiu, which is a strong, clear liquor served neat and usually with dinner. Now that we have some background information on the area, it’s time for hotels in Hong Kong that are sure to help make for an outstanding trip.
