Home to some seven million Honkies (as they are affectionately known) the city is a bustling hub of commerce, shopping and culinary delights. Renowned as a business powerhouse, the underbelly of Hong Kong is as rich and diverse in ancient culture as it is in modern technology.


THE LAY OF THE LAND

Measuring a tiny 1,100 square kilometres, Hong Kong comprises of the mighty Kowloon Peninsula (sometimes referred to as ‘the dark side’ by Hong Kong Island residents but more correctly referred to as the ‘real’ side by Kowloon residents), and 236 Islands, the largest being Lantau Island (where you will find the airport) and the second largest being Hong Kong Island (where you will find most of the suits).
