Singapore & Hong Kong
Singapore is an ever-changing mosaic of fascinating contrasts of East and West, of rich legacies and sleek modern living. Hong Kong has developed from a tiny fishing village in the 1800 to a dynamic and thrilling cosmopolitan metropolis. Hong Kong is an incredible mix of traditional charm and modern wonder that needs more than a few days to fully explore.
With its friendly and welcoming people, Singapore has a state-of-the-art infrastructure and something new happening everyday. From the wonderful shopping on offer along Orchard Road, the famous long bar at Raffles hotel to the beaches and experience of Sentosa Island.
Picture Hong Kong and the first image that springs to mind is usually a dramatic cityscape, with towering skyscrapers jutting into the sky. While the city certainly has no shortage of big high-rises, remnants of old Hong Kong remain apparent in its many historical buildings. Thanks to efforts in the past few years to preserve these beautiful older buildings visitors to the city can explore these fascinating sites that they remain part of Hong Kong’s vibrant street culture.
Kowloon is the peninsula to the north of Hong Kong Island. It lacks some of the glamour of the Island, but makes up for it with unmatched vibrancy: Kowloon is by some measures the most densely populated place on the planet.
