Top Hong Kong Attractions
Hong Kong is famous for many things like food, sightseeing and shopping. Here are some selected favourites that our previous guests have enjoyed.
Cable Car Ride - Ngong Ping 360 is a 25-minute, 5.7 kilometer cable car ride from Tung Chung that takes you up to the Giant Buddha and Po Li. Suspended 100 metres high in the sky, you will have breath taking views from the glass see-through cable car.
Victoria Harbour at Night – take a Star ferry from the Ferry Piers in Central to Tsi Sha Tsui and see Victoria Harbour light up at night with the lights show starting at 8pm every night.
The Peak – Take the tram up to the Peak and you can see the whole of Hong Kong’s skyline from the top of the mountain.
Stanley Beach - Stanley is very different to other parts of Hong Kong, or completely different from what you think about Hong Kong. Stanley, located at the southern of Hong Kong island, is much more relaxed with beaches, hills and coves. You will find a western atmosphere in this small Chinese town.
Macau – Experience the old Portuguese colony which has turned into the Las Vegas of Asia. Take a comfortable 1 hour super jet ferry to visit the old historical part of the city as well as the new hotels, casinos and various landmark attractions.
Shenzhen – Hop across the border to Mainland China for a fun filled day of shopping and seeing famous local attractions. Take time out to enjoy a 2 hour Chinese / Thai massage for less than $15 USD.
