Description

You are invited to experience Hong Kong Berlin in March 2018 with #DMUglobal, at the same time as the GREAT Festival of Innovation in Hong Kong, a flagship event created by the UK government to help business succeed on the global stage. Students will enjoy the usual mix of activities related to academic studies and broader cultural experiences whilst in this thriving city.

More information about each of the different trips available and detailed activities will be announced when this opportunity launches for applications.

Cultural activities

While in Hong Kong, students will have time to absorb the region’s culture and engage in a variety of cultural experiences. Students are encouraged to take a boat tour to explore Hong Kong’s world-famous harbour and to get the best views of the city take the Peak Tram to Victoria Peak.

Also, when the sun goes down, you will have the chance to visit the Temple Street Night Market, a popular street bazaar, named after a Tin Hau temple located in the centre of its main drag, and a place so steeped in local atmosphere that it has served as the backdrop to many a memorable movie.

Other popular cultural activities include visiting Hong Kong’s busiest temple, Wong Tai Sin and climbing the 268 steps to see the impressive 34 metre high Tian Tian Buddha on Lantau island.
