Hong Kong is a city that leaves a lot to say; it has an incredible skyline that you can appreciate at night, islands in quantity, and street markets where you can find everything. Tourists sometimes have insecurity about traveling, because they believe that it would be difficult for them to get in touch with Chinese citizens, however, they must remember that Hong Kong was once part of a British colony and many Chinese citizens were left with that badge of being able to understand English as well as Chinese. So, don’t worry about talking to others in Hong Kong, because they will be able to understand and serve you with pleasure!

We have heard that the best place to try real traditional Chinese food is in the street markets. And there is no way to deny this, because there you can find all kinds of foods such as spicy, salty, fried, boiled, stir-fried, etc. However, you must remember that most of their food is set with different types of vegetables and meats to balance the substantial flavor that it comes to have. For something new on your recurring menu, Chinese food is the right choice because of its unique extravagance.

For those who like to have unforgettable memories of a good night, Hong Kong has the best-known events held in this city as it is in the new year, which in China is celebrated between January and February each year.
