With its neon lights, mega foodie scene and sky-high shopping, Hong Kong’s energy will sweep you away.

Walking the streets there’s activity on everyone corner, from soaring skyscrapers to overflowing markets and traditional monasteries all vying for space. But among the busyness of what is everyday Hong Kong, an opening will emerge to a lush garden, manicured park or harbourside dock leading you onboard to explore the island by ferry. Flip the city over and venture out to find mountains, beaches and quaint fishing villages. You can shop (and eat) till you drop at the famed Temple Street Night Market or sing Cantopop at a karaoke bar on Lan Kwai Fong. All hail Hong Kong!

Discretion is advised for LGBTQI-travellers in Hong Kong. Hong Kong Chinese tend to be conservative and few people are openly out. That said, Hong Kong has a small, but growing, gay scene and the annual Pride Parade attracts thousands. While it’s common for friends of the same sex to hold hands, keep in mind any further displays of affection are frowned upon (this applies to heterosexual couples as well).

For more detailed and up-to-date advice, we recommend visiting Equaldex or ILGA before you travel.
