Don’t expect to get culture–shocked by Hong Kong – the cosmopolitan hub known for its East–West personality split is easy to navigate and love. If your hometown has a Chinatown, chances are the Cantonese cuisine will be familiar comfort food (North America’s early Chinese immigrants hailed from here). When you’ve satisfied your appetite for shumai and skyscrapers, escape to the lush islands and fishing villages next door.
