You’ve heard about Hong Kong, but you need to see it to believe it. Hong Kong is a dense island metropolis jam-packed full of culture, innovation, unique scenery and of course, its mouth-watering cuisine. The new is paired right up against the old, with Buddhist temples sandwiched between shiny skyscrapers, and street vendors selling age-old traditional foods outside seven-story shopping malls. Hong Kong is a melting pot for Asia and for the world, where expats feel comfortable and welcome, and where having Pakistani or Korean food for dinner is as easy to find as some good Cantonese old dim sum.

Hong Kong at Night
Hong Kong comes alive at night. This is a city where a noodle shop that looks drab in daytime will turn a spectrum of neon hues after dark. At 8pm, head to Victoria Harbour to see Hong Kong's skyline light up in blues, greens, yellows and purples as a laser show plays out, synchronized to music.
The Chaotic Beauty of Busy Hong Kong Streets
Prepare all your senses. Hong Kong's streets will throw you smells of fried tofu and skewered meat, sounds of cars honking and people yelling to bargain for a better price in a street market. We couldn't let go of our cameras as we walked miles through Mong Kok, Yau Ma Tei and Tsim Sha Tsui.
Hong Kong's Famous Junk Boats
The city itself is composed of hundreds of islands, and these days it's common for groups of friends to hire a boat and ride for an hour out to the New Territories, where the boat will anchor and everyone can swim, taking in the scenery and sunning atop the boat's roof deck.
Sunset and Reflections at Instagram Pier, Hong Kong
Instagram Pier was a real place before Instagram was born. It was a pier in the Sai Wan district near Hong Kong University that served as a loading dock before it was a highly sought-out photo spot for taking reflection photos after a light rain before sunset.
