Hong Kong


You are here

Before you even touch down in Hong Kong, you'll be enchanted by the view - hundreds of skyscrapers stacked along green peaks and islands dotting the surrounding sea.

But you'll know you've truly arrived when you stroll Hong Kong's busy streets. Home to a large expatriate community, Hong Kong is a fusion of cultures and languages. It’s also a top international trade and finance center attracting business and people from all over the world and providing seemingly endless possibilities for a summer internship. Together, this blend of cultures and business clout makes for an exciting intern abroad experience.

Hong Kong's Top Five

Shop the Markets

The diverse and colorful markets of Hong Kong offer something for everyone—like an authentic Chinese good-luck charm at the Jade Market, a new scarf at the Ladies Market, or an evening out at the Temple Street Night Market. 

Trek to Tian Tan

The 112-foot Tian Tan Buddha, which sits atop the peak of Lantau Island, has become a major tourist destination in Hong Kong. Though accessible by public transport or foot, an exciting alternative is the Ngong Ping 360, an aerial gondola providing panoramic views of Lantau Island and beyond.  

Cruise the Harbour, Hong-Kong Style

Technically speaking, the Star Ferry is just one of the many modes of public transporation available in Hong Kong. But just because it's part of many residents' daily commute, it doesn't mean the Star Ferry doesn't offer amazing views of both Hong Kong Island and Kowloon any time you hop on. 

Spend a Day at the Parks

Theme parks, that is. Hong Kong Disneyland is located on Lantau Island and brings the fun and feng shui (really!). If you're interested in getting acquainted with marine life, head to Ocean Park in the Southern District, complete with an aquarium, roller coasters, and a rainforest. 

Explore the other SAR

Though not part of Hong Kong, Macau is the only other Special Administrative Region of China. Just a ferry ride away from Hong Kong (and soon to be connected by bridge), Macau offers visitors a unique experience thanks to its fusion of Chinese and Portuguese cultures. This is evident in its architecture, cuisine, and language.
