Hong Kong remains one of the most popular destinations for tourists from all over the world. It has long earned the status of one of the most glamorous tourist and business destinations in the world and is rightfully recognized as the commercial and cultural gateway to Asia.
Hong Kong represents an impressive intersection of cruise lines and also attracts a wide range of travelers. Since the beginning of 2023, Hong Kong has experienced a significant recovery in cruise traffic after pandemic restrictions, writes Global Traveler.
For tourists, Hong Kong is known for its architectural wonders. The renovated seaport can simultaneously accommodate two supercruise ships and can accommodate 8,400 passengers and 1,200 members. At the same time, a new terminal at the airport has also recently been put into operation, and the runway for airplanes has been redesigned.
One of the liveliest tourist areas, Tsim Sha Tsui is the starting point for visiting Hong Kong due to its proximity to the Hong Kong Art Museum, Hong Kong Space Museum, restaurants and shops. At the same time, other well-known cultural heritage sites have recently received significant structural, aesthetic, security and retail upgrades.
The West Kowloon Cultural District is one of the world's largest cultural centers and offers guests cutting-edge art, design and architecture from the 20th and 21st centuries.

Tourists looking to avoid the crowds are advised to take the Ding Ding tram, which crosses Hong Kong Island at a leisurely pace. Avid walkers can also take advantage of the new promenade that runs from Kennedy Town on the western part of Hong Kong Island to North Point to the east, with plenty of breathtaking views.
