World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Museum-lovers will appreciate Camera Obscura and World of Illusions and National Museum of Scotland. Get some historical perspective at The Real Mary King's Close and Palace of Holyroodhouse. And it doesn't end there: explore the historical opulence of Edinburgh Castle, examine the collection at Royal Yacht Britannia, get to know the fascinating history of Edinburgh Old Town, and shop like a local with Grassmarket.

For traveler tips, maps, where to stay, and other tourist information, read Edinburgh vacation planner.

If you are flying in from Hong Kong, the closest major airports are Edinburgh Airport, Glasgow International Airport and Glasgow Prestwick Airport. Expect a daytime high around 15°C in May, and nighttime lows around 6°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 31st (Wed) to allow enough time to drive back home.
