Hong Kong – Tourism

T/I: 10:08:08

The Hong Kong Tourist Association has announced a welcome boost in the industry. Almost 860,000 people came to see Hong Kong’s magnificent
skyline in August, nearly five percent more than the same month
last year. The city is amongst the most cosmopolitan in Asia, boasting cultural events, museums and performances not easily available at nearby destinations. The Tsing Ma Bridge itself has become a tourist attraction, especially amongst mainland Chinese visitors.
