Which possibilities can a hotel in Hong Kong offer me?
As an autonomous administrative region, Hong Kong shares a cultural affinity with China with British influences from its colonial past. As well as being an important centre for commerce, it’s a popular destination for affluent travellers from mainland China and the rest of the world.

Travellers also enjoy Hong Kong for its many festivals and excellent luxury retail stores.
Where do I find the main business hubs in the city?
Close to your hotel, Hong Kong’s business district is known as ‘Central’. It's home to many of the major corporate headquarters along the island’s North Shore as well as the administrative centre of Government Hill. Ultra-modern skyscrapers dominate the skyline including the Bank of America Tower and International Finance Centre. The Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre is the city’s main site for conferences including the Asia Treasury Leaders Forum, Fashion Access, Fine Art Asia, Hong Kong Electronics Fair and many others. The city's commercial growth has been partly due to the government's low level of intervention. This allows businesses to thrive in the free market economy that's distinctive to the region.
