Hong Kong in detail

Bustling, glitzy and brash, Hong Kong has long been a major cruise destination. It has undergone a sustained period of change since handover to China in 1997, but has retained its exotic and glamorous appeal as a port of call on cruises in south-east Asia.

Hong Kong has also become far more Chinese than ever before, with many expats departed and a Beijing-facing government presiding over the former British colony.

Hong Kong Island itself, with its glistening array of skyscrapers clustered around the spectacular harbour, is the core of the old imperial possession, with Kowloon just across the harbour forming the other half of the main conurbation.

Further north are the New Territories, leased from China in 1898, which form a slightly more rural hinterland. And around this main focus are the large islands of Lamma and Lantau and the smaller, quieter, Outlying Islands that complete the patchwork.
