Hong Kong - Travel tips
Visiting Hong Kong will leave every visitor dumbstruck. Indeed, inside the city opposing elements live together, but it is part of its charm. Here it is not difficult to admire elements belonging to the tradition next to modern features, oriental expressions accompanied by occidental ones, tall cutting-edge skyscrapers and small traditional shops, brilliant signs and holy temples.
Stroll the crowded streets listening to some Cantonese summer hits, take a break at a wok and buy a portion of noodles and, of course, do not miss the visit to the city's symbols. Some of its main sights are The Peak and Tram, a belvedere from which it is possible to enjoy an amazing view of the city and its bay. In Night market at Temple Street it is possible to find many handicrafts products, but also technological devices. Or even, Man Mo Temple, a temple dating back to the colonial ages, which shows a strong conflict between its exterior and interior. From one side it seems poor, while once you pass the door you will be wrapped by an evocative atmosphere.

Why visit Hong Kong
Hong Kong is one of two Special Administrative Regions of the People's Republic of China with Macaw and it is situated on the southern coast of China. The city is just south of the Tropic of Cancer, the climate is sub-tropical and it is subject to monsoons. Winter is very mild and relatively dry, while summer is pretty hot and wet. Sometimes Hong Kong is hit by typhoons.
In 1839 the refusal by the Qing dynasty authorities to import opium unleashed the First Opium War between Britain and China. Hong Kong island was occupied by the Brits in January 1841. With the treaty of Nankin, signed in August 1842, Hong Kong was formally assigned for 100 years to the United Kingdom. Only in 1997 did Hong Kong become part of the People's Republic of China, dropping the 156 years of domain of the British Empire.
