Hong Kong Travel Guide

Hong Kong is one of the most dynamic places that I have ever visited, a city you can spend your whole life in and still not fully grasp.  The cosmopolitan area most frequently broadcast to the world is just a tiny fraction of the city.  Much like the New Yorker who refuses to leave Manhattan, there are plenty of Hong Kongers who never venture from the Central District.  As a traveler, you would be doing yourself a huge disservice to miss out on the rest of the city — the old historic areas of Kowloon, the lush undeveloped landscape of the New Territories and Lantau Island.

    great guide, esp since you gave some love to New Territories (where I was raised) and Kowloon in addition to the island. And yeah, the Manhattan analogy is pretty spot on.
