Hong Kong is known for its fast pace and entrepreneurial spirit and international flavor. Nowhere is this more evident than in the dining scene. The city's resplendent dining tables offer something for every taste and budget, from European haute cuisine with a spectacular view of the harbour, to regional Chinese specialties in tiny two-table establishments frequented by loyal connoisseurs. Some dishes are centuries-old classics served in unassuming surroundings, others are innovative multi-ethnic adaptations presented amidst the very latest in architecture and interior design.

Apart from the dining sensation, Hong Kong is also known for its "Shopping Paradise". From the famous and prestigious brand names to the distinctive "In" style fashion, you can find them all in Hong Kong. These fashions, together with many other accessories, are conveniently located in huge shopping complexes and department stores.
