All Cathay Pacific flights at Manchester Airport travel to and from the autonomous territory of Hong Kong in south-eastern China. Hong Kong International Airport is incredible in itself as it’s built upon a large island of reclaimed land, known as Chek Lap Kok. The airport is the primary hub of Cathay Pacific as well as many Chinese and western airlines.
Visitors to Hong Kong will find a city fit to burst with culture and a rich cosmopolitan melting pot rivalled only by New York, London or Paris. Top things to do in Hong Kong include:
Shopping in the sprawling malls of Times Square (Causeway Bay) and Langham Place (Argyle Street, Mong Kok).
A trip to Hong Kong Disneyland, featuring unique attractions, unlike any other theme park.
Hike up Victoria Peak, famous for its iconic view across the city.
