Yelp Rises To The Occasion in Hong Kong
Hong Kong is the city with the most skyscrapers in the world, the world’s largest escalator system, and the world’s biggest ferry fleet; this bustling harbor is a vibrant and versatile metropolis. Today, Yelp is proud to include Hong Kong in its growing family of world class cities.
This former British Colony is one of the most densely populated places in the world. Accommodating more than 7 million residents forced Hong Kong to grow up, literally. HK boasts 1,268 skyscrapers – the most in the world and over twice the amount in NYC!
For aficionados of public transit, it doesn't get any better than HK. Over 90% of Hongkongers’ daily commutes involve buses, mini-buses, ferries, trams, and/or trains. You’ll also see locals hopping on and off the world’s largest escalator system! But it’s not all concrete jungle as 40% of Hong Kong’s land is designated for country parks, so don’t forget to bring your hiking boots and your spirit of adventure.
Speaking of adventuring, hit up Mong Kok or Sham Shui Po and you’ll be rewarded with a thriving local street culture — from flea markets and live bands to local temples and fish balls. And whether it’s dim sum, dai pai dong, or private kitchens, Hongkongers are bona fide foodies. Boasting one of Asia’s highest concentrations of restaurants per capita, that surely means a lot of tasty Yelp reviews on the way.
