Hong Kong is a city with a lot of options--literally. Outside the skyscrapers, you can enjoy the countryside with hiking trails and fishing villages. Built up high in the buildings are endless shops and markets to explore. After a stressful day, you can find some peace at any number of restaurants and coffee shops before hitting the bars to unwind. What’s not to like about Hong Kong?
Here's what you should see when visiting Hong Kong
#1 Hong Kong Island
The best place to start your Hong Kong tour is on Hong Kong Island. This is where the majority of the financial and commercial district, but also most of the other sights are. It is also the only place in Hong Kong where you can find the old British colonial buildings, as the Chinese government was not keen on preserving this part of the city after they took over. If you have time, I would highly recommend taking a ferry to Kowloon and back.
Just a few minutes away from Hong Kong Island, you find Kowloon. This is the mainland part of Hong Kong, part of the New Territories. Here you can find the Hong Kong and Macau ferry terminal, as well as the famous Nathan Road, the main street in Kowloon. Nathan Road.
#3 Central & Wanchai
No trip to Hong Kong is complete without a stroll through Central and Wanchai, two of the most vibrant parts of Hong Kong Island. Here you will find small shops, markets, and hidden gems that you would never find in high-end shopping malls.
#4 Tsim Sha Tsui
Tsim Sha Tsui is an area with a number of attractions, such as the Avenue of Stars, the Hong Kong Cultural Center, the Hong Kong Space Museum, and the beautiful Avenue of the Stars.
The island of Lantau is the largest island in Hong Kong and has some great views, and places to go to, including the Ngong Ping 360 cable car and the Po Lin Monastery.
#6 The Peak
The Peak is Hong Kong's highest mountain and allows for great views over the whole city. Here you will find one of the most famous buildings in Hong Kong, the Peak Tower.
#7 Stanley Market
Located in the coastal area of Stanley, next to where the Star Ferry leaves, you find Stanley Market. It is located in a small village, which is known for its seafood, including fresh lobsters, and is a great place to go shopping.
#8 Central Market
Central Market is a great shopping centre, which is located in the Central district. It is home to a number of small shops and stalls that sell everything from cheap clothing to exotic food.
#9 Temple Street Night Market
The Temple Street Night Market is a great place to go out and shop, as well as get some good food. The Temple Street Night Market is also located in the Central district and is a great place to go out and cruise around before hitting the clubs.
#10 The Avenue of Stars
The Avenue of Stars is a great place to take some great pictures of the skyscrapers in Hong Kong, including the Bank of China Tower and the HSBC building.
