China Things to Do: 765 reviews and 1,190 photos


Originally the British called Hong Kong a 'Barren Rock' when claimed as a Crown Colony in 1841. These days the 'rock' is barren no more, it transformed itself from humble fishing villages into a thriving trading port and gateway to mainland China. In 1997 Hong Kong was handed back to the Motherland. It is one of the most exciting cities in the world, rich in history and culture not to mention great nightlife and shopping.
