Marco Polo Hong Kong: the Travel Guide with Insider Tips


Experience all of Hong Kong’s attractions with this up-to-date and authoritative guide, complete with ‘Best Of’ recommendations. Find hotels and restaurants, check out the city’s trendiest places and nightlife scene. There are tips for shopping and getting by on a low budget as well as ideas for children and numerous activities. Further sections include: Festivals and Events, Travel Tips, Links, Blogs, Apps & more, Cantonese phrasebook and index; useful too is the ‘Perfect Day’ section and the handy pull-out map supplied in addition to the Street Atlas inside.


Hong Kong: the Asian metropolis is an attraction in itself with its mixture of mountains and water, of skyscrapers and culinary seductions. Neighbouring Macau lures visitors with its grandiose gambling palaces as it becomes the Las Vegas of the East.


With MARCO POLO Hong Kong/Macau you will discover the fascination of the Far East. In Hong Kong explore the urban canyons, giant shopping centres and lively markets. Eating dim sum in a teahouse and taking the tram up the Peak are just as much part of the programme as evening laser show in the harbour, an excursion to the New Territories or lazing on the beach. In Macau you can immerse yourself in a world of colonial buildings and casino hotels – and the Macanese cuisine full of typical delicacies. 


The Insider Tips reveal where dragons breathe fire, where you can enjoy a lively lunch on Sundays and where you might like to head for a good night out. Panels in each chapter suggest things to do if you’re on a tight budget and where you might pick up some real bargains. The 'Best Of' pages highlight some unique aspects of Hong Kong, recommend places to go for free, and have tips for rainy days and where you can relax and be pampered. You'll find out what's currently in vogue in Hong Kong – whether it be designer clothes or wakeboarding. The City Walks lead you through the exotic and colourful bustle of Hong Kong, stopping at stone monuments to its history, and along the shady trails of the Peak. Last but not least the Dos & Don’ts warn you about gangs and cheap offers.


MARCO POLO Hong Kong/Macau provides comprehensive coverage of all areas of both cities. To help you find your way around there are the 'Where to Start' panels, a detailed Street Atlas, including maps of Macau and Taipa/Coloane, a useful map of Hong Kong's MTR in the cover and a separate pull-out map.
