Hong Kong, China

Despite several memorable visits to Asia, this stopover will mark the Volvo Ocean Race’s debut stay in Hong Kong. The city is the perfect place to host the event – an iconic and cosmopolitan metropolis, with a rich maritime heritage, and an ideal spot for the sailors to unwind after an epic but exhausting leg.

Hong Kong has carried many nicknames. The most famous among those is the "Pearl of the Orient", and that feels appropriate when you see the impressive night-view of the city's light decorations on the skyscrapers along both sides of the Victoria Harbour. The territory is also known as "Asia's World City".

Surrounded by beautiful waters, Hong Kong boasts not only a vibrant sailing culture, but also a rich history of shipbuilding and engineering innovation.

Take the tram to the top of Victoria Peak – the highest point in Hong Kong, and the perfect spot to gaze upon the city’s stunning skyline at sunset.

Soar up sky100 for fascinating 360-degree views of the stunning skyline and seaside cityscape from 1,289 feet (393 m) above the city below. Take some time to walk around the 360-degree viewing area and scope out the scenery below. From this high vantage point, you can look out over the entirety of Hong Kong Island and the Kowloon Peninsula, as well as the iconic Victoria Harbour.

Hong Kong – Top Picks

Hong Kong has a long list of activities that we can incorporate into your guest experience programme. Below we have included our top recommendations.

  • Take the tram to Victoria Peak
  • Tour Aberdeen Harbour
  • Buy your own ingredients and learn how to cook a Chinese meal
  • Learn to write Chinese characters
  • Visit one of the beautiful temples

Hong Kong has a humid subtropical climate, which gives it long, hot and sticky summers, and very mild winters. Winter is a preferred time to visit, as the temperatures are much more tolerable in December, January and February, especially if you need to work or are keen on sightseeing, shopping or experiencing the Volvo Ocean Race. Daytime highs at this time average around 22 °C.
