About Hong Kong

While Hong Kong is officially part of China, it is worlds apart from the country in terms of culture, economy, and politics due to its unique history. The former British colony is now known as the place where “East meets West.” It boasts an iconic skyline, colorful traditions, lush nature, and legendary gastronomic scene. 

Hong Kong is one of the busiest and most developed areas in Asia when it comes to business, trade, and tourism. It is also known as a well-established hub for medical tourism in the region. Many medical tourists are attracted to its high-quality and cutting-edge treatments rather than cost, though it is still more affordable than most Western countries. Having one of the most innovative medical centers that combine modern treatments with Chinese methods, Hong Kong is particularly known for cancer treatments. Cosmetic treatments, such as breast augmentation is also becoming increasingly popular.

In this region, visitors can go to Wong Tai Sin Temple, meet macaques in Kam Shan Country Park, explore the Temple Street night market, admire Chi Lin Nunnery and Nan Lian Garden, and eat street food in Mong Kok. Another popular area is Lantau Island, which is where Hong Kong Disneyland and the Big Buddha are located.
