For centuries, Hong Kong has been a favoured destination among Western tourists to the Far East. Its long British colonial history has given it a hybrid culture that makes it distinct from other Oriental destinations, perhaps matched only by Singapore in that regard. This especially found expression in the city's cinema industry when the Hollywood influence met directors who came across from mainland China from the 1940s onwards. Bruce Lee's movies then turned the city into the world-famous film production centre that also produced Jackie Chan and Jet Li. It goes without saying that there are hundreds of cinemas of all descriptions here, making this a place to come to for that alone. Buy or sell Hong Kong event tickets on StubHub for the Oriental movie tour of a lifetime.
The ancient city of Hong Kong
Hong Kong has a world-famous cityscape. It has always packed an incredible number of people into a small area, solving the problem of accommodation by building upwards. The city's glittering skyline is the first thing that strikes you, but it's not all about modern skyscrapers. A good part of the city is taken up by the ancient Kowloon Walled City. Visit it to soak up human history that goes back to BCE. The city's elaborate Dragon Boat races are another way to absorb its culture – book tickets for the Tuen Ng Festival to watch these. Hong Kong has also become synonymous with world championship Rugby Sevens. Time your visit to coincide with one of the great events in world sport and get the best Hong Kong event tickets.
Hong Kong blends pop with opera
Hong Kong has its own genre of pop music, known as Cantopop. It's quite foreign to the ear at first, with its Cantonese opera influences. It went into decline as a local favourite towards the end of the 20th century, but you can still catch many performances at venues tucked away in the city. StubHub is your best guide to finding these among the Hong Kong event tickets available. Classical music lovers have a choice of watching the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra and the Hong Kong Chinese Orchestra. The Hong Kong Cultural Centre is the venue to seek out for both of these. Otherwise, head to the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts to see all types of theatre, musical concerts and vocal performances. It's also a great place to watch some jaw-dropping local talent.
Exploring China and nearby islands
Hong Kong is an island just off the coast of China, perfectly placed for you to reach plenty of other major Oriental cities. The Philippines lie to the south, where you can catch the Manila Symphony Orchestra in Quezon City. There's also the Smart Araneta Coliseum for international pop acts. Mainland China offers Shenzhen and Guangzhou to the north. The latter has the superb Guangzhou Acrobatic Arts Theatre to visit. Or you could head over to Japan and visit Osaka for its acclaimed festivals and puppet shows, which you can book for on StubHub.
