At the highest point in Hong Kong, Victoria Peak gives the best panoramic views of this sprawling metropolis. The pictures you’ve seen of Hong Kong are likely taken from here, and for good reason, the views are captivating. This is as mainstream as travel in Hong Kong gets, but you’ll find that it’s well worth it. Ascend by tram, dine on some local fare, and marvel at the modernity of ‘Asia’s World City’.
Shopping in Hong Kong comes in many forms. From glitzy shopping malls and department stores to street markets and upscale boutiques, Hong Kong’s commerce is as fun as it is crowded. Notable street markets include Temple Street and Ladies Market. Expect some elbows, bargain a little, and walk out with a mitt full of wares.
From Cantonese to Thai to bangers and mash, Hong Kong’s culinary diversity rivals any great city. Dine out at Michelin-starred restaurants or give roadside stalls a go, there is something for everyone. The culinary choices in Hong Kong are vast, but give great insight into the city’s culture and history. From hole-in-the-wall gems and a fusion of international delicacies to fine dining, a meal in Hong Kong is an important part of every visitor’s itinerary. Some of the city’s best eats include Dim Sum, Seafood, Chinese Barbecue, hot pot, noodles and congee.
Hong Kong’s charm comes in part due to its ultra-modern growth alongside its quaint villages and vast green space, and Tai O, a rural fishing village on Lantau Island, is among the most fascinating and picturesque of them all. Stilt homes, docked boats, and a mountainous backdrop offer a beautiful contrast to the modernity of the city proper.
Take the cable car up to see Ngong Ping village and the Big Buddha on Lantau Island. Stunning views, a Monastery and a 112 foot tall Buddha make this day trip to Lantau Island worthwhile.
