They call Hong Kong the 'City of Life' because it has always been so vibrant and full of energy. It's a city that's both exotic and cosmopolitan making it a perfect destination for first time travelers to Asia.

At the same time, it's foreign enough that tourists will definitely feel that they are not on a typical beach vacation. Even after the U.K. gave Hong Kong back to China, this Chinese government designated 'Special Administrative Region' has not lost its dynamics. The communist government realizes the importance of Hong Kong as an economic giant and is so far adhering to a two system coexistence for China. 'Hong Kong' means 'sweet harbor' in the Chinese Cantonese dialect which is fitting as there's so much in the city to stimulate all of the senses.
