Main Venue
Island Shangri-La Hotel, Hong Kong

Drawn heavenwards, your eyes trace the 56 storeys of Island Shangri-La, Hong Kong, a luxurious tower overlooking the city’s most prestigious shopping, cultural and business addresses. Within this urban sanctuary are remarkable treasures waiting to be discovered. You step inside with anticipation. In the atrium, the arresting "Great Motherland of China" is a 16-storey landscape silk painting deemed the largest in the world. It is grand and inspiring. It almost stops time; you do not realize how long you were held by its artistry. But the wonders never cease here. When you step into Lobby Lounge for a quick drink, the 140-year-old Banyan Tree holds your gaze. This had cost HKD 24million to conserve – a unique gesture in this bustling metropolis that lets nothing stand in its way. Before you know it, lunchtime beckons. The shopping will just have to defer to the promise of exalted cuisine. After all, Conde Nast Traveler has honoured Island Shangri-La, Hong Kong, as one of the best hotels in the world for dining. With eight restaurants, you decide to start with the obvious choice – Shangri-La's very own, Summer Palace. The satisfying lunch has energized you for a shopping spree. You don’t have far to go with Hong Kong's Pacific Place mall just below the hotel. You return laden with your loot. It's time for a well-earned rest. At the Horizon Club, well above the city, you admire the doubly stunning views of The Peak and Victoria Harbour over an evening cocktail. It’s been an eventful day, and you can't wait to do it all over again. But for now, time stands still in this city sanctuary. Welcome to Island Shangri-La, Hong Kong.

About Hong Kong

Hong Kong, officially the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People's Republic of China, is an autonomous territory of China on the Pearl River Delta. It has an area of 1,104 km2 and shares its northern border with the Guangdong Province of Mainland China. With around 7.2 million Hong Kongers of various nationalities,[note 2] Hong Kong is the world's fourth most densely populated country or territory.

Hong Kong used to be a British colony with the perpetual cession of Hong Kong Island from the Qing Empire after the First Opium War (1839–42). The colony expanded to the Kowloon Peninsula in 1860 and acquired a 99-year lease of the New Territories from 1898. Hong Kong was later occupied by Japan during the Second World War until British control resumed in 1945. The Sino-British Joint Declaration signed between the United Kingdom and China in 1984 paved way for the transfer of sovereignty of Hong Kong in 1997, when it became a special administrative region (SAR) of the Peoples Republic of China with a high degree of autonomy.

Under the principle of "one country, two systems",Hong Kong maintains a separate political and economic system from China. Except in military defence and foreign affairs, Hong Kong maintains its independent executive, legislative and judiciary powers. In addition, Hong Kong develops relations directly with foreign states and international organisations in a broad range of "appropriate fields". Hong Kong involves in international organizations, such as the WTO and the APEC, actively and independently.

Hong Kong is one of the world's most significant financial centres, with the highest Financial Development Index score and consistently ranks as the world's most competitive and freest economic entity. As the world's 8th largest trading entity, its legal tender, the Hong Kong dollar, is the world's 13th most traded currency. As the world's most visited city, Hong Kong's tertiary sector dominated economy is characterised by competitive simple taxation and supported by its independent judiciary system. Even with one of the highest per capita incomes in the world, it suffers from severe income inequality.

Nicknamed "Pearl of the Orient", Hong Kong is renowned for its deep natural harbour, which boosts the world's 5th busiest port with ready access by cargo ships, and its impressive skyline, with the most skyscrapers in the world. It has a very high Human Development Index ranking and the world's longest life expectancy. Over 90% of the population makes use of well-developed public transportation. Seasonal air pollution with origins from neighbouring industrial areas of Mainland China, which adopts loose emissions standards, has resulted in a high level of atmospheric particulates in winter.
