Feast on pillowy buns filled with savoury char sui (barbecued pork) at a dim sum lunch and pass thousands of Buddha statues as you climb the steps of the 10,000 Buddhas Monastery. Now an autonomous territory of China, Hong Kong’s past under British rule means there’s an interesting crossover of cultures to discover.

A good view is easy to find in this city; hop on the Star Ferry in Victoria Harbour for classic skyline views, take the Peak Tram to snap the city from above at Victoria Peak or ride the Ngong Ping 360 cable car to see the Big Buddha.
