The Special Administration Region of Hong Kong is situated at the mouth of the Pearl River Delta on the southwestern coast of China.
Hong Kong Island with its financial hub known as Central is the vibrant heartbeat of the region. Its towering skyscrapers and neon light night spectacular accentuate the capitalist (and often hedonistic) pursuits of its inhabitants, many of them expats.
Statue Square is now a must-see, on account of its dazzling ensemble of modernist buildings. The headquarters building of the Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation (HSBC) forms the south side of the square and just to the east of it is I M Pei`s Bank of China Tower.
After dark, it just gets better. The view of Hong Kong`s glittering lights from the Peak by night is unforgettable, particularly at 20h00 when the nightly Symphony of Lights laser and music show invigorates the towers of Central and Kowloon`s Tsim Sha Tsui.
