Culture and heritage are what sets Hong Kong apart from the rest of Asia. With 150 years of colonial history and a largely Chinese population, Hong Kong is a unique fusion of Western and Eastern cultures where the old and the new live side by side. Its incense-filled temples, colonial buildings and glass-and-steel skyscrapers, along with its ancient traditions and lively festivals, have made Hong Kong a living culture experience.
Hong Kong has many ancient Chinese temples spread throughout the territory. They serve followers of Buddhism and Taoism as well as a number of deities. The most popular is Tin Hau. Further attractions can be found on Hong Kong Island and in Kowloon and the New Territories.
Furthermore, Hong Kong's street markets are always full of excitement and colour. The market stalls are where Hong Kong's shoppers use their bargaining skills. There are a few for you to explore, such as Stanley Market, Temple Street Night Market, Ladies Market and Jade Market.
