Last Minute Holidays By Air - Hong Kong

Hong Kong - To Enjoy Hong Kong nuances, and it does have those - you have to submit to it first. Once you have powered through its explosion of crowds, cars and concrete, and your eyes have adjusted to blinding neon, you'll find that below its slick exterior, Hong Kong can be downright soulful. Tuck into dim sums and jasmine tea alongside the locals in traditional tea-houses and smoky canteens in the central district. Visit the ornate Man mo and Wong Tai Sin temples and breathe in the air, thick with burning incence and fervent prayers. Hire a junk, traditional Chinese fishing boat, for a picnic across the beautiful Aberdeen harbor. Ocean Park, a massive theme park with fun rides, aviary and marine shows and recreations of China's past, is perfect for kids. Temple street in Central Kowloon is a delightfully unruly ghetto rife with hawkers, soothsayers, out-of-work opera troupes and food stalls serving what you hope are only rare crustaceans. For bargain shopping and laidback waterfront lunch, visit the popular open air Stanley Market. later, take the 120 year old funicular up to Victoria Peak for unparalleled views of the city's skyline in all its glamour and restlessness, with the rest of China strretching out behind its mountains to the north. A tranquil retreat from the city's buzz is the verdant Lantau Island, home to Hong Kong Disneyland and Hong Kong's biggest Buddhist monastery, where you can reflect over views os the rolling hillside along with a 100ft tall statue of Buddha. Hong Kong's eastern roots, covered with its western makeover, leave you with a destination that's a delight to deconstruct
