Hong Kong city boasts of a number of uniquely designed buildings, each with its own distinct architectural élan.

The Handover
It was on June 30th, 1997 when Hong Kong's population came out to celebrate the handing over of their country to its rightful possessor. It was the media event of the year, with more than 8,000 journalists hounding the territory.

Lion Dance
This 'kung-fu' style fanfare is sometimes performed on special events such as corporate anniversaries and the opening of new businesses, as it is said that lion dances can bring good luck.

Art & Craft
In Hong Kong, ancient Chinese arts and craft are widely available in several department stores and retailers in Wan Chai, Kowloon, and in Hong Kong Island.

A HK$50 visitors pass will allow unlimited entry to four museums, which are run by the Urban Council: Hong Kong Museum of Art, Science Museum, Space Museum, and Museum of History.

Chinese Opera
Chinese opera is a cardinal institution in Chinese entertainment and culture.

Tea Drinking
A Tang Dynasty scholar who devised the first definitive treatise on tea making had initiated this tradition, which began almost 1,200 years ago.

Traditional Medicine
Chinese therapy began over 2,000 years ago, in the era of the Warring Empires. It was a time when China was divided into many clashing fiefdoms and kingdoms.

Cantonese pop
Or Canto-pop in short, has set the scene for the youths of Hong Kong since the late 1980s.
