Hong KongOne of the most exciting cities in the world, Hong Kong outpaces even New York, Tokyo and London at times. Efficiency is the key in Asia’s World City, and you will see this in practice everywhere. Elevator monitors ushering queued office workers to arriving lifts, the ultra-clean Mass Transit Railway (MTR) subway, and the Octopus cash card used anywhere simply by tapping it on a magnetic sensor. However, taking it slowly is to enjoy the real Hong Kong, its charm lying in quiet, residential alleyways, leisurely afternoon tea breaks at Hong Kong-style diners, (chachantangs), or a sunset stroll along Victoria Harbour’s waterfront admiring the architecture, including masterpieces by I.M. Pei (Bank of China Building) and Sir Norman Foster (HSBC Building).
