With its numerous attractions and world-famous cuisine, there’s nothing but fun in Hong Kong
THERE’S hardly a dull moment in vibrant Hong Kong. You’ll have plenty to see and do — from shopping and indulging in world-famous Hong Kong cuisine to cruising around Victoria Harbour and having loads of fun at the island’s theme parks and other tourist attractions.
The harbour is one of the most-pictured icons of Hong Kong. Go on a cruise around it in a harbour cruise boat, a ferry or a traditional Chinese junk to complete your holiday.
Standing at 552m above sea level, The Peak is Hong Kong’s highest point. Ride the 120-year-old Peak Tram to visit the Peak Tower. Apart from the tower, there’s Madame Tussauds and exciting shopping and food outlets as well as a 360-degree view of Hong Kong from its rooftop.
What’s a holiday in Hong Kong without the shopping? Walk along Mongkok street markets and busy Nathan Road and you’ll end up with bags of things to bring home.
There’s the fashion street of Granville Road in Kowloon with swanky malls. Other top shopping districts are Causeway Bay on Hong Kong Island and Tsim Sha Tsui in Kowloon.
