The perfect balance of East-meets-West culture in both Hong Kong and neighbouring Macau. Hong Kong is a vibrant place famed for its modern architecture, with towering glass buildings covered in LED lights, but it also retains a lot of its original history and culture. What’s more, it makes the perfect base for travelling. Macau is just an hour’s Turbojet ferry ride away, and its mix of Portuguese and Macanese culture fused with the large settling of native Chinese means it has a unique charm. Both places are also shopping Meccas. This is where Asia’s wealthy head for a spree, and you’ll find street after street of high-end designer shops,as well as an abundance of shopping malls open until late. And you’ll have a great choice of vibrant night markets too — just be prepared to barter hard for a bargain. Come night-time, Hong Kong’s Lan Kwai Fong district plays host to the most popular hangouts, with plenty of bars and restaurants and an all-night party scene to rival any city. Stormies is a great bar to start your evening’s fun. Macau’s nightlife is somewhat more on the refined side, but you’ll still find yourself spoilt for choice even on a budget, and the array of casinos are often open around the clock should you fancy trying your luck.

Facebrag about…

Defying gravity. The Macau Tower is 338m tall, and offers you the chance to bungee jump from 233m up. In Hong Kong, take the cable car up The Peakfora360-degree view of the city’s most striking landmarks.

Don’t leave without…

Watching Hong Kong’s Symphony of Lights. This long-standing light show sees Victoria Harbour come to life every night at 8pm. The spectacle was created to symbolise the growth, heritage, culture and energy of Hong Kong.
