Hong Kong Insider - with Wired Destinations


Lantau Island

Lantau Island was once a laid-back fishing village. After the late 1990s, the island's profile was raised again with plans for the new airport. Housing blocks have been built in northern Lantau to house over 15,000 airline employees; bridges now connect the airport to Kowloon and Hong Kong Island. However, Lantau Island has escaped much of the new construction; large parts of the land still remain rural despite  ongoing massive construction on its northern coast.
The island's hills are a haven for Buddhists as numerous temples are placed there. By the 1970s, there were over 135 Buddhist monasteries around Lantau Island, with around 500 monks, so the island is sometimes called the Island of Prayer.

New Territories

As the name suggests, the New Territories in Hong Kong has long served as a buffer  zone between the British colony and China. The New Territories boasts diverse landscape, mountainous countrysides, modern new towns and a range of attractions that draws visitors from mainland China and from around the world. Public transportation in Hong Kong make this area easily accessible, and if you get out and explore its offbeat place, you will without a doubt find a little more surprise and create an unforgettable Hong Kong holiday in the New Territories.


Hong Kong Island

Festivals: There are five annual traditional festivals that every visitor should experience. The most important one is the Chinese New Year which is in January and February. Visitors can witness spectacular fireworks displaying over the Victoria Harbor. Tin Hau festival is a Taoist festival held in April to early May. Dragon Boat festival is in June, where dragon boats race along Hong Kong and the outlying Islands. The Lantern festival is set in September or October with colorful lanterns which light up the entire town. A major International event is the Festival of Asian Arts held during October and November.

Kowloon

In the 1860s the south of Kowloon was a tiger hunting ground for the British for many years. In 1993 the Kowloon Walled City was demolished. Today, New Kowloon is not regarded as part of the New Territories but as part of the urban area of Kowloon.
