What to do in Hong Kong

Hong Kong is a diverse and fascinating city and has a lot to offer travellers. From its massive skyscrapers to villages that sit on stilts in the sea, and from the food and culture to hi-tech experiences, it is a marvellous place to visit as a tourist.

It is a true 24-hour city, so it is important to choose wisely from the many Hong Kong hotels to ensure a good night’s sleep last night.

Read on for some of the best things to do in Hong Kong.

Shop

Whether its souvenirs from the Temple Street night market, footwear from the impressive shoe stores, or goldfish from street sellers, shopping in Hong Kong is an experience for all the senses. The insiders head to the Sun, Moon and Star streets in Wan Chai for independent boutiques.

Enjoy the Night

Hong Kong has some truly glamorous nightlife options, whether up among the clouds in a hotel bar or down by the harbour lapping up the cocktails and local delicacies.

Eat out

There are thousands of restaurants across Hong Kong so there is no need to eat at the same place twice, not even if you went out for food three times a day for a decade! For a unique experience head to a floating restaurant.

Hop the Islands

The islands of Hong Kong are well worth exploring, although with 260 of them it might be time-consuming to see them all. Lantau, Peng Chau and Cheung Chau are some of the closest to the mainland and ferries run regularly.

Find some Inner Peace

Escape from the hustle and bustle of the city streets and head to a peaceful retreat for some rest and recuperation. See the Tian Tan Buddha on Lantau island or visit the Po Lin monastery. Or try one of the many spas for reflexology, massages and pampering.

Go Dolphin Spotting

Take a boat tour from the fishing village of Tai O on Lantau island and keep your eyes peeled for pink dolphins.

Hit the Peak

No visit to Hong Kong is complete without making the journey up the Peak to look down over the city. A train climbs the 373 metres to the top, where there are nature trails and a Madame Tussauds.

Go au Naturale

Hong Kong is not just skyscrapers and technology – it also has a lot of natural wonder. Head to Sai Kung, an area of exotic landforms, parks and marine habitats.
