About Hong Kong

Cruise Shipping Asia-Pacific 2014 will be held at the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre in Hong Kong.  Click here for venue information.

Situated on the southeast coast of China, Hong Kong's strategic location on the Pearl River Delta and South China Sea has made it one of the world's most thriving and cosmopolitan cities and a center for international trade.

As a reflection of this, the heart of Asia's world city has always been the bustling and beautiful Victoria Harbour. Hong Kong Island lies to the south of the harbor, while the Kowloon Peninsula forms its northern shores. To the north of Kowloon lies the New Territories, which stretch all the way to Mainland China. Hong Kong is also home to more than 200 Outlying Islands, including Lantau Island, where Hong Kong International Airport is located.

Plus, the thriving cruise industry is no more evident than with Hong Kong's state-of-the-art  cruise terminals. The brand new Kai Tak Cruise Terminal and Ocean Terminal deposit you close to all the action in Hong Kong.

Language
Hong Kong can mostly thank its colonial history and international harbour for the rich blend of cultures that give it its unique character. While the majority of the city's population are Chinese speakers, simply walking the streets will expose you to a medley of Asian and European languages, and English is widely spoken.

November Weather
There are pleasant breezes, plenty of sunshine and comfortable temperatures. Many people regard this as the best month of the year to visit Hong Kong. Average temperature: 19 – 28 degrees celsius.
