Location: Hong Kong & China

From the highs of Victoria Peak to the shores of Aberdeen Harbor, one can spend as much or as little time as they wish exploring the many faces of Hong Kong. With a population of 7 million people but only 428 square miles of land, Hong Kong is one of the most densely populated and exciting areas in the world.

Renowned for its expansive skyline and natural setting, Hong Kong is one of the world's leading financial capitals, a major business and cultural hub, and maintains a highly developed capitalist economy. It is a cosmopolitan center where east meets west and its distinctly cultural customs are reflected in its cuisine, cinema, music and traditions.

China’s climate is a humid subtropical environment. Summer is warm with occasional showers and thunderstorms. Expect 65-95 degrees this time of year.
