SWISS flights to Hong Kong bring you comfortably and in style to this Asian metropolis. The city has a stunning high-rise skyline, but at street level there is another city to explore.
Horse racing is popular in Hong Kong, and the Happy Valley track, built in 1845, has a great atmosphere on race days. The Dragon Boat Races are another competitive tradition. They mark the summer solstice, when delicious pork dumplings are also eaten. Open markets also give you a great feel for the city. Try Temple Street, which is open at night. The market has some fantastic street food stalls, and you can often hear traditional Cantonese opera being sung by buskers. The Tin Hau Buddhist temple is situated right in the middle of the market.
