Jutting out of the side of China with its legendary harbor and high peaks, Hong Kong is a global megalopolis that fizzes with business acumen and energy. It's got so many different sides. There's skyscraper-shrouded Central, where bankers gather in beer bars after dark. There's steaming Kowloon, awash with mystics and fortune tellers and night bazaars. There's Lamma, where old fishing boats meet by creaking quays. And that's only a taster, what with mountainscapes and beaches abounding to boot. Cheap flights to Hong Kong from USA are available from all over the country. The quickest will be on nonstop routes out of West Coast hubs, taking around 14-16 hours on average.
Hong Kong's Victoria Peak boasts some of the finest panoramas in the city. It's especially awesome in the evening.
Lamma Island is a break from Hong Kong's center. Hop on the ferry here to find fish taverns and sandy beaches.
The Tian Tan Buddha caps the forests of Lantau Island. You can head here to meditate, to see old Chinese monasteries, and get sweeping views of Hong Kong's outer bays.
