Bespoke and Tailor Made Holidays & Honeymoons to Hong Kong

Now part of China since it reverted to Chinese sovereignty in 1999, Hong Kong is a wonderful introduction to the Far East and offers the traveller an amazing mix of modern and traditional culture, along with being a centre for business travel and a great stopover point on the way to Australasia.

Hong Kong was a colony of the British Empire from the mid 1800s and was originally just on Hong Kong Island, but boundaries were extended to the Kowloon Peninsula and then New Territories.  It was occupied by Japan in the Pacific War then the British regained control until handing it back to China. Sitting on the south coast of China it is surrounded by the Pearl River Delta and South China Sea. The centre point is it’s deep natural harbour.  It’s one of the most populated areas in the world with 95% of the population being ethnic Chinese.

Some of the world’s finest hotels are found here including Grand Hyatt, Ritz Carlton, Shangri-La and Mandarin Oriental. Even if you can’t afford to stay there, make sure you visit one of these luxury hotels for afternoon tea or a cocktail!

Sightseeing around Hong Kong includes taking the Peak Tram to the top of the hills where spectacular views over the city, harbour and the islands and mountains beyond are found from The Peak. You can also walk down through woodland on the other side. Another high observation deck is at West Kowloon at ‘sky 100’ which offers 360 degree views high above sea level.

The Star Ferry crosses Victoria Harbour between Kowloon and Hong Kong Island giving a good all round view of the activity on the water and make sure you see the nightly ‘Symphony of Lights‘ show which illuminates harbour front buildings and is a great sight to take in before or after dinner.

Other points of interest include the Giant Buddha in the Po Lin Monastery and the stilted houses at Lantau Island and Tai O Village. For children, visit Hong Kong Disneyland with the new Toy Story Land and Marine Ocean Park which has around 35 rides.

Food is a high point of any visit to Hong Kong! Street stalls and markets to high end restaurants can be found everywhere. Shops also offer a wide range from high end boutiques and designer goods to the market traders and traditional Chinese goods.

It’s easy to get around on a world class and affordable public transport system which includes buses, trams and the underground, plus taxis if you need them.  From Hong Kong you can also visit by fast ferry Macau 40 miles to the west.

The capital of Hong Kong is Victoria, the most commonly spoken languages are Cantonese and Mandarin and the currency is the Hong Kong dollar. You can visit all year round but the best weather when the climate is mild is mid September to end of February.

Communication was always very clear and we always had a quick response. We were very pleased with the service we received from Travel With Jules. The Ha Long Bay Bassac boat cruise was brilliant, the crew on board were a fantastic group and did everything they could to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. We would definitely recommend your services to our friends.

Thank you for our tailor made holiday to Cambodia and Vietnam (with Dubai stop over). You listened to what we wanted and made the changes to our itinerary as requested. The ground agents were fantastic, the guides were always on time and everything was organised very efficiently. There were many fantastic sights and experiences. Halong Bay was a particular favourite of mine.

One of the things I have come to love about you, Jules, is that you listen and take on board what makes me tick, and then tailor the holiday to fit me, not just try to convince me to fit a holiday in a brochure!
