Day 1   30 Mar 2016

5 places

  • Victoria's Peak

    This is a must do in Hong Kong, and a cure for jet lag if you hike it! The views from Victoria's Peak are fantastic, you'll be able to grasp just how big and impressive Hong Kong is from the top.

    Short Description

    There are many ways to get to the top, but I recommend hiking to the top for the true experience. You can join the Hong Kong Trail at any point, and it will take you to the peak. I recommend starting on the Morning Trail by Hong Kong Univeristy, then doing the Peak Loop.

    Short Description

    Dim sum is a must when in Hong Kong, head here to order a wide variety of Dim Sum. Cash only, come hungry!

    Street food at its best! Some of the best food in the world is prepared this way, and this is some of the best food in Hong Kong. Sometimes finding a table will be challenging, but it is worth the wait.

  • Star Ferry, Hong Kong

    Trips to Hong Kong are not complete without a ride on the Star Ferry. Very iconic, great views, and very cheap.

    Short Description

    Take the ferry from Central to TST, or TST to Wan Chai. The bottom deck is the best for views, and cheaper than the top deck. Get your camera ready, this is the best way to see both sides of the harbor in Hong Kong.

    Activities
    Recommendation
    19:00
  • Victoria Harbor Light Show, Hong Kong

    The longest continually ran light and sound show in the world. Much worth the time to view, and watch from the harbor. Buildings on both sides of the harbor light up to music.

    Short Description

    The light and sound show plays at 8pm every night in Hong Kong. The best place to watch is on the promenade in TST, right at the exit of the Star Ferry on the Kowloon side.
