Gay Hong Kong

Hong Kong,

Hong Kong, China.
Gay and Lesbian Hotels, Inns and Guest Houses - Reviews and Ratings. Gay and Lesbian Travel.

Hong Kong is one of the world's most spectacularly beautiful cities. It's also one of the Pacific Rim's hottest destinations for gay and lesbian travelers, fans of fashion and gourmet dining, freewheeling investors and entrepreneurs, and devotees of luxury hotels. Nearly all of the world's leading hotel chains have outposts in this famous trading port at the mouth of the Pearl River Delta. Once a British colony, the UK handed this prosperous territory back to China, Hong Kong has continued to enjoy great popularity as a center of business and trade as well as retaining its status as a major tourist destination. . Road traffic follows British road rules, and even though Hong Kong is technically part of China, North American and British citizens do not require visas for entry, as they do when they cross the border into China.

With more than 50,000 rooms available, Hong Kong offers a huge choice of accommodation for the gay and lesbian traveler to suit every budget, from modest guesthouses and youth hostels through every range of hotel up to super luxury. You can enjoy a harbour view or stay among the big city lights, in more rural settings or beside a beach.

Hong Kong has a fairly visible and well-organized gay community and the gay and lesbian social and cultural scene that has grown steadily in recent years. This is in part because the city is such an international business and leisure hub, but also because attitudes toward gays and lesbians are steadily becoming more favorable throughout the Pacific Rim. Still, the traditional attitudes of China and even old-school Britain largely prevail. In this sense, gays and lesbians in Hong Kong tend to be more discreet and, in many cases, closeted, than in most major Western cities.

For gay and lesbian travelers, shopping and dining rank among the favorite local pastimes. Hong Kong isn't quite the bargain retail destination it was years ago, but the territory bustles with both sleek upscale shopping centers and quirky, discount and specialty markets. It's quite fascinating to stroll through the Flower Market in Kowloon, or to explore the clothing stalls of Stanley Market on the south side of Hong Kong Island.

Hong Kong's most popular attraction, The Peak offers spectacular views over the city, harbor and mountains beyond. For an extra buzz, take the Peak Tram. Take the iconic Star Ferry to enjoy stunning views around the harbour, and don’t miss the nightly A Symphony of Lights show featuring harbour-front buildings. Lantau Island features the world's tallest outdoor seated bronze Buddha, along with the Po Lin Monastery, Tai O village on stilts, Ngong Ping 360 and Hong Kong Disneyland.

Renowned as the culinary capital of Asia, Hong Kong boasts more than 11,000 restaurants many of them clustered in defined food districts. Apart from enjoying the best Cantonese and regional Chinese food, gay and lesbian travelers can sample a full choice of authentic Asian and Western cuisine. Local must-try dishes are dim sum and fresh seafood, with some of the top examples found in Best of the Best award-winning restaurants.

Hong Kong is also renowned for its colorful local festivals, world-class cultural and sports events. Concerts, theatre and dance performances by famous international artists and local Canto-pop singers create a dynamic experiences.

So, for the gay and lesbian traveler searching for a truly unique destination offering exceptional culture, arts, music, theater, cuisine, sights and shopping, then Hong Kong has it all.
