Things To Do in Hong Kong

 
 

Pictured; the Tram to Victoria Peak

 
 
 
 

There are plenty of museums and other attractions around Hong Kong like "The Peak".

The Peak is an almost wok shaped building atop Victoria Peak it offers spectacular views across the city of Hong Kong and it is reachable by a spectacular tram ride. Hosed in the Wok shaped building are the two attractions Ripley's Belive it or not, the Peak Motion Simulator ride and Madame Tussauds Wax museum.

Other attractions and places of interest on Hong Kong Island include the Zoological and Botanical Gardens Central market and Statue Square. In Kowloon you can find the Hong Kong Cultural Centre and Hong Kong Space Museum in Tsim Sha Tsui a great place to visit.

If shopping is your thing you cant beat Kowloon for shopping. Thousands of shops line the streets around the Tsim Sha Tsui area. The most famous street Nathan Rd is probable best known for its fashion shops, while areas like Sham Shui Po or Mong Kok are probable better for electrical items. Mong Kok also features several street markets where you can pick up a real bargain. Another market is the tourist popular market in Stanley. Stanley is on the other side of Hong Kong island and is reachable by bus it is a much quieter village than the city but it often gets overcrowded with tourists on the weekend who flock to its beach.

Often forgotten by the tourist is the fact that Macau is only 65km away that can be reached by a fast catamaran in around an hour. Macau is similar to Hong Kong in the fact it was occupied by a European country (Portugal) until it was handed back to China in the late 1990s. The Portuguese influence can really be seen in the street of Macau and it is nice change of pace to the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong.

There are plenty of islands that make up Hong Kong and these can be a relaxing getaway from the hustle and bustle of the Hong Kong city. The largest island of Hong Kong is called Lantau. The airport railway and highway passes along Launtau's western edge and will soon link up the Hong Kong Disneyland that is under construction on Launtau.
