Millions of global travellers have voted Hong Kong as the best travel destination in Asia in the 2011 Travelers Choice Destinations awards by TripAdvisor. Ranked alongside New York, London and Paris, Hong Kong is also the only Asian city among the 10 best destinations.

Commenting on the accolade, Chairman of the Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB) Mr James Tien said, We are truly delighted and honoured by this prestigious and influential award. To be selected by millions of travellers worldwide as one of their favourite destinations is a strong testament to Hong Kongs global appeal and popularity. It not only reaffirms our citys position as a leading travel destination in the region, but also pays tribute to the hard work and effort of every member of our tourism industry.

As online travel planning becomes a global trend, this award will help us achieve positive word of mouth for Hong Kong and inspire even more travellers to visit our city. Working closely with our trade partners, we will continue to showcase Hong Kongs appeal as Asias World City, including its vibrant, cosmopolitan setting, its unique fusion of East and West, as well as great diversity of attractions, which give visitors an exceptional, world-class experience, Mr. Tien added.

Hong Kong has been described by TripAdvisor as a city of endless shopping, big-city nightlife and delicious dim sum, besides offering spectacular night views.
