Hong Kong has a lot to offer. There are beautiful beaches, gentle forest walks, challenging hill trails, villages, islands, and diverse wildlife including globally rare birds, and corals. Plus, of course, the city – with dazzling skyscrapers, neon clad streets, bustling local markets, and a thriving entertainment industry. The Hong Kong tourist board site 'Discover Hong Kong' is a good place to visit and see what Hong Kong has to offer.
Living and working in Hong Kong does not mean that you have to live on Hong Kong island, though many do enjoy the convenience of living close to work. There are several outlying islands, and some teachers prefer to live further from work and enjoy a quieter pace of life. The following links will provide you with an idea of where you can stay and what accommodation options are available:
Hong Kong is a very convenient city, and has extensive public transportation networks. Taxis are also relatively cheap. Frequent ferries operate between Hong Kong Island and outlying islands, and Hong Kong airport is a major hub; allowing you easy access to other countries within the region if you intend to continue travelling after summer school has come to a close. Most forms of public transport will allow you to use a travel card 'octopus card' which can be topped up at convenience stores all over Hong Kong.
If you who enjoy socialising; be that in restaurants, theatres, or in lively bars and nightclubs, or attending sports events, Hong Kong has a variety of interesting options. HK magazine or Time Out Hong Kong will give you an idea of what's on in Hong Kong.
