Hong Kong is a city that never sleeps with a vibrancy that few other places on earth possess. It operates from a highly advanced infrastructure where traditional shop houses and authentic hawkers sit alongside soaring skyscrapers – creating a ripe landscape for experiential travel.
Hong Kong is quickly becoming Asia’s arts and cultural hub, attracting worldwide interest for its burgeoning creative arts scene. With a booming auction market and growing number of international art galleries opening (including Gagosian, White Cube and Lehmann Maupin from New York), the contemporary art landscape is here to stay in Hong Kong.

Westerners are often tentative to try and curious about their effectiveness, often referring to them as ‘alternative’ medicine. But in Hong Kong they co-exist with modern day antibiotics.

In Hong Kong, more than a fifth of all medical consultations are made with practitioners of Chinese medicine.
