Hong Kong International Airport, HKG

On the modest size of the island of Hong Kong there is no place for anything. For example, for the airport. Therefore, it was built on a specially created artificial island, which increased the total area of ​​Hong Kong by 1%. The airport itself is listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the most expensive airport construction project ever.

It is often called as one of the most convenient airports for passengers. It’s comfortable to move around, the pointer system is as clear as possible, so getting lost here is simply impossible. In general, the infrastructure is perfectly thought out and all customs processes pass without unnecessary stress.

Trail "Dragon's Back"

This walking route is the best in Asia according to TIME magazine. The "Dragon's Back" is one segment of a long route in Hong Kong, but it is the most spectacular views that open up.

But in clear weather you will walk along the ridge, and around will be the sea, small islands and bamboo forests.

 

The route will take several hours, and at the end you can go down to the beach and refresh yourself in the sea.

What to eat in Hong Kong

Hong Kong is famous for its food. It’s always delicious regardless of the place: you can eat well in an expensive restaurant or at the street vendor’s counter. Moreover, even a street vendor can have a Michelin star here. Like a tiny establishment Tim Ho Wan which is a literally small serving window and a couple of tables. The place is known for its pork buns that received a star from a world-famous guide. But the most pleasant: the prices remain the same even now.

 

By the way, these pork buns are called Dim Sum. Dim Sum is a common word used to name various snacks. Dumplings are called Dim Sims, and spring rolls, and various pies. All that is served in small portions and, as a rule, in a container of bamboo. You can easily try Dim Sums of any kind. It is convenient to order a lot of different snacks on a common table for a small company. They often serve free green tea.

 

Be prepared for the fact that in Hong Kong they are preparing everyone and everything. For example, you may be served deep-fried chicken legs (limbs with fingers to be sure) or snake soup. And if you order a chicken stewed in one of these wonderful sauces, be prepared for the fact that it was cooked whole without even cutting off its head. Such are the Hong Kong people and their non-waste production.
