Traveltease brings you a tantalising taste of the Orient.


Take a tour of one of Hong Kong's most exciting districts.

In recent years, West Kowloon has taken on a postmodernist sheen as Hong Kong’s newest arts hub, but under all the glitz and glamour, this remains one of the city’s oldest neighbourhoods.
