Perhaps East Asia's most memorably extraordinary city, Hong Kong might almost be said to have multiple personalities such is the variety of experience on offer. Its proudly consumerist culture has resulted in the widest variety of shops on the planet, its role as a trade hub in a vast range of cuisine, and despite the endless concrete and futuristic skyscrapers of the more recognisable areas, this is a territory that is mostly rural, with cloudy mountains and rocky islands offering plenty of scope for exploration away from the 7 million inhabitants crammed into the southern part of the peninsula, known as Kowloon, and Hong Kong island itself.
There is much to do and see: marvel at the dazzling cityscape from heights of the Victoria Peak, cross the harbour from Tsim Sha Tsui on the the Star Ferry (one of the cheapest and most spectacular harbour tours on earth) or avoid the crowds at the often overlooked Sai Kung Peninsula, with its beautiful beaches and wild countryside. To keep your energy levels up, we suggest you indulge in some authentic Dim Sum - particularly recommended are the barbecue pork buns.
Finding a golf course isn't at all hard in Hong Kong, which boasts a quite ridiculous number of courses for its small size. However, scratching that golfing itch isn't quite as simple as that would suggest, as almost all the courses are private member clubs. Fortunately, a number of them do open their doors to non-members at certain times and on certain days, and although the prices are pretty high, there are more than enough delights to justify the expenditure. Test your self against the best at the ancient Hong Kong Golf Club, where Nick Faldo's course record 62 is a mark that has stood for over 20 years, or against the elements on the stunning cliff-top course at Clearwater Bay Golf & Country Club, where the stiff ocean breezes making the required accuracy off the tee a big ask. Take both a camera and a load of spare balls.
If your schedule isn't flexible enough to allow you to play at specific times and days proscribed by the private clubs, thankfully there is Kau Sai Chau Public Golf Course, the only true public course in Hong Kong. Lying on a island just off the coast of Sai Kung, it offers 54 varied and exciting holes which should more than satisfy those unable to get a round on the more exclusive, and expensive, private courses.
