Hong Kong.....not my favorite city.

Its interesting that Hong Kong, Schenzen and Macau are all in the top 10, given three cities are only 70 km apart.

Personally i have been to every east asian and european city on the list. Id go for Istanbul, Barcelona or Seoul.

Well they aren’t obviously. They are 3rd, 8th and 7th respectively.

Thatís just the point, and what makes this list flawed.

I can see Hong Kong being number 1 in terms of being a major transit point
but donít tell me people prefer it over London, Paris, and New York.
Iím not buying it.

I don’t think they count the people who have only been to Hong Kong airport for this list though.

Hong Kong > Dubai > Bangkok > Paris > NYC.
Didn't click but seems fair.
More specifically, Tokyo should be No 1.

I saw HK, 4 days, I just cannot conceive this city is the most visited in the world. It was the biggest disappointment in my tourist life... Unless London, Roma, or even Vienna, this city has nothing to offer except skyscrapers and cockroaches with 100% of humidex.
Like Macau, the main reason is that they are near China -1,3 billion potential tourists-.
'favorite in the world', HK ? Lol

It would be London first, I would sign.

Shenzhen almost as visited as NYC? What the heck is in Shenzhen to see? It is not even the top 20 tourist city in China.
