Towering above everything else is the Peak which is Hong Kong’s premier scenic spot and also its prime residential area which has plenty of public greens for those who want to unwind in the outdoors.
Hong Kong Island, the busy financial and commercial centre with its high skyscrapers, has a lot to offer: shops, bars, headquarters from companies and, for those who feel like it, a little bit of culture mostly a few museums and some monuments.
