Lonely Planet writer Lorna Parkes describes why she loves Hong Kong. "Hong Kong has to be the most beguiling city on earth. One minute I can be straining to get an eyeful of the city's neck-breaking versatility, and the next i'm seeking shade under trailing Chinese banyan trees that convince me i'm in a subtropical place far away from central's hustle. It's exotic yet familiar. Hong Kong's complexity and diversity is astounding and its confident cultural melee never fails to woo me - particularly in the kitchen, where Hong Kong chefs create love letters to their food-adoring fans. If i had one last meal? It would be dim sum in Hong Kong."
