Hong Kong attractions? Hong Kong is a fabulous travel destination. Sorry Disneyland: Hong Kong’s original theme park is also its most beloved. You’ll find Ocean Park on the south side of Hong Kong Island. Make sure you take a peek at the two resident giant pandas, Ying Ying and Le Le, then catch a lift on the cable car over the cliffs, and on to the hair-raising rollercoasters, other attractions and an array of marine animals and exotic birds. Oh, and if you’re in Hong Kong during Halloween, Ocean Park is also incredibly popular for its month-long – and genuinely rather spooky – Halloween attractions.
Hong Kong’s famous Star Ferry, with roots dating back to 1880, costs only a few Hong Kong Dollars to ride, making it one of the best deals in all of Hong Kong. Victoria Harbour is a hive of activity, and ships of all shapes and sizes chug, zip, or wallow past as the expert captains of the Star Ferries somehow avoid collisions. As you travel the main route from Kowloon to Hong Kong Island, or more specifically, Tsim Sha Tsui (TST) to Central, it’s hard not to be struck by the dense towers of Hong Kong Island, backed by green mountains rising up before you. The breeze off the water is exceptionally refreshing, and the wide-open spaces are a perfect antidote to the tight confines of the city. Don’t worry about scheduling a time to ride the ferry, they leave every few minutes all day long and later into the evening, so it’s always easy to get a great seat in the front or along the rail. The return trip from Central to Tsim Sha Tsui is also just as impressive. If you time it right in the evening, you can catch the full splendor of the A Symphony of Lights show. The 360-degree spectacle of laser beams striking the skyscrapers on either side of the harbor is one of the city’s free attractions and one of the most popular things to do at night in Hong Kong.
Perching on The Peak at 396 metres above sea level, The Peak Tower is one of the most stylish architectural Hong Kong attractions. Inside The Peak Tower, there is a dazzling array of restaurants, shops and entertainment venues set against the beautiful backdrop of the city. Moreover, The Peak Tower boasts the highest 360° viewing platform – The Sky Terrace which offers spectacular panoramic views of the vibrant city. Victoria Harbour is a natural landform harbour situated between Hong Kong Island and Kowloon in Hong Kong offering a stunning view of the city skyscrapers. While the Symphony of Lights is the “World’s Largest Permanent Light and Sound Show” by Guinness World Records, has been further expanded to include more than 40 buildings on both sides of Victoria Harbour. The stunning, unforgettable spectacle synchronised to music and narration that celebrates the energy, spirit and diversity of Hong Kong. Performance starts 8 pm daily.
How to get in or out of Hong Kong? We recommend flying, with Cathay Pacific if you can as i only had very good experiences with them, here is a reason : Safety! Plane crashes are spectacular, tragic events that can result in hundreds of deaths. Fortunately, they are extremely rare. According to Chance News, the odds of dying on a 1,000-mile flight is significantly less than that from dying on a 100-mile car ride. Rail, bus and train travel are also more dangerous than flying on a plane.
If you’re looking for a relaxing spot to unwind after a hectic morning of sightseeing, Hong Kong Park is the place for you. Tucked away amidst the towering skyscrapers, the park’s landscaped gardens and rock gardens perfectly complement the natural landscape, which has two lovely lakes at its center. Many locals come to practice tai chi or relax amidst the greenery. A peaceful place, the park also includes the Hong Kong Visual Arts Centre, the Flagstaff House Museum of Teaware, and a little cafe if you want to grab a drink and watch the world go by. This scenic ridge is one of the most popular parts of a hiking trail that takes you through five country parks. Nature lovers will absolutely adore the wonderful countryside. The Dragon’s Back is located in Shek O Country Park, and the highlight on the hike is the remarkable view from Shek O Peak. Here, you can gaze out over beaches, bays, and roving hills; the scenery is stunning.
