Hong Kong is a major international city in an outstanding natural setting, surrounded by hills, islands, beaches, waterfalls, wildlife and south China village traditions.

Enchanting Hong Kong reveals the many facets of this kaleidoscopic destination, taking the reader on a journey through the business hub of Central and nearby Wanchai with their shopping and nightlife possibilities, into the hugely popular Happy Valley Race Course, up Government Hill with historic buildings and the Zoological Gardens, and on to the Peak for an overview of the city. A Star Ferry ride across Victoria Harbour leads to Kowloon with its museums and shopping malls. Beyond lie the New Territories and outlying islands with their forests, wild hills, country parks and nature reserves – making Hong Kong a perfect mix of culture, shopping and wildlife viewing opportunities all within a short distance of each other.

From urban adventures around the street markets of Mong Kok to the trekking possibilities along the Hong Kong trail and the beautiful beaches of the Sai Kung Peninsula, Enchanting Hong Kong introduces the many diverse attractions the city has to offer. Features 146 colour photos accompanied by informative text as vibrant as Hong Kong itself.
