Hong Kong offers an opportunity to develop new perspectives on East Asia. Hong Kong is famous for tailors who can handcraft any article of clothing you want and markets that almost never close. The unusual sights, smells, and sounds of the Flower Market, the Bird Market, the Goldfish Market, and the Ladies Market shouldn’t be missed, but the Temple Street Night Market is a must. See thousands of life-size golden Buddhas at the 10,000 Buddhas Monastery. Don’t miss Sha Tin Park where you’ll see beautifully landscaped fragrant gardens, arched bridges, gazebos, and ponds. The Wan Chai Heritage Trail is a walking trail through one of Hong Kong’s oldest districts where you can snag bargains in the colorful Tai Yuen street market, see one of the last tenement buildings in the Tong Lau style, snack on dim sum, and enjoy raucous nightlife. It’s a great way to get the historic flavor of Hong Kong’s cultural heritage. As a center for Asian travel, studying abroad in Hong Kong gives you easy access to visit neighboring places like Thailand, Bali, Bangkok, Phuket, Seoul, the Maldives, and Taipei.
