This lively vivacious city is bursting with extravagance – from its densely populated city with towering skyscrapers to charming marketplaces brimming with Cantonese dim sum and glorious tea!
If you want to see Hong Kong in all its glory make sure you visit Victoria Peak; it’s the highest point at 552m tall making it a popular hotspot for tourists. Capture breathtaking views of the bustling metropolis city and beautiful green woods. Another perfect location is the Tsim Sha Tsui East Promenade where many take a stroll and dine alfresco with the beautiful backdrop of the city.
For an atmospheric experience the Man Mo Temple is certainly the best place to go. This temple is Hong Kong’s oldest and has become a dedicated monument to the gods of literature. Tian Tan Buddha is a landmark you’ll never fail to miss – at 23m high this monastery takes a climb of 260 steps for the best view but you can rest assure it’s worth it. The best time to visit is during the Buddha’s Birthday; a public holiday celebrated late April or early May.
Animal lovers and young travellers should make time to see the Hong Kong Zoological and Botanical Gardens. A welcoming exhibition filled with foundations, sculptures and the world’s leading centre for endangered species. Kids will be ecstatic to know there’s a Disneyland with all its major attractions like Tomorrowland, Fantasyland, Toy Story Land and more!
Foodies will have heard about Lung King Heen, the world’s first Chinese restaurant to receive three stars from Michelin – what more needs to be said! Other fantastic places worth visiting are Club Qing, Tim’s Kitchen and One Dim Dum for a quick bite that’s easy on the wallet.
