Hong Kong Sights & Attractions

With a metropolitan like Hong Kong, you can count on seeing all kinds of big city stuff: from 1600 ft (490M) tall 118-storey high rise - the elevators of which are an experience to ride, to the street markets packed with stalls under canopies, leaving just a few feet for pedestrians and the brave - and patient - drivers, and everything in between.

Since it is a city in China, you can also count on the cultural Chinese sights and scenes, among which the slaughtering of snakes in a wet market draws even a local crowd.

Being a city where the east and the west have integrated for a century, there're both Chinese traditions and festivals plus those from the west as well.
