If you’ve ever traveled to Asia, chances are that you’ve made a pit stop in Hong Kong
(albeit some may be layovers, but hey, it counts). If you love the hustle and bustle of city life, HK is where it’s at. Ex pats who live there claim that “a New York minute is a Hong Kong second.” And they’re telling the truth.
This place oozes high energy 24/7. There’s so much to do on a small island of seven million people, but your limited vacation time from work won’t allow you to stay long enough to finance the next leg of your Asia tour. We get it, so we’re helping you narrow down your endless choices of things to do in Hong Kong.
Rising 1,805 above sea level, this summit provides tourists and locals alike breathtaking views of the island. Night or day, you don’t want to miss out on the city’s most popular attraction.
Ride the Star Ferry
Sure, there are faster modes of transportation in Hong Kong (beware of unscrupulous taxi drivers), but relax on the Star Ferry that crosses Victoria Harbour. You can take in the skylines on both sides of the water with this ride.
Dine at a Restaurant Overlooking the Harbour
Best. View. Ever. Enjoy dinner from a restaurant with amazing views of Victoria Harbour. The skyscraper lights dancing on the water is a sight you don’t want to miss. Our personal recommendation is to take a seat at Aqua Restaurant in Tsim Sha Tsui. You’re welcome.
Shop the Crowded Streets
What concrete jungle? The lively streets of HK puts New York City to shame. You’ll run into food vendors, souvie shops, massage parlors, and the occasional whisper of counterfeit goods.
And just like any other travel spots, create your own story. Visit the nooks and crannies of the city. We sure did. Here is TSOG’s story:
