The interest of the travellers are gradually shifting into the countries at the Southeast Asia, the inclusion of Hong Kong into the list of the most visited country is a strong testament that international tourists are now paying attention to the country’s tourism. Theoretically, Hong Kong is a part of the Mainland, but the culture, tradition, and personality of Hong Kong is distinct. It is a densely populated place which is filled with shops, restaurants, and places to visit in Hong Kong.
What to Do in Hong Kong
We asked some of the travellers regarding their favourite destination in Hong Kong and put it into this short list.
Check the View at the Victoria Peak
If you want to capture the enthralling view of Hong Kong, the Victoria Peak encapsulates that breathtaking image. It is a renowned vantage point where you will have a great perspective of the world’s most renowned harbour and majestic scenery that will make the city of Manhattan looks provincial. Everything you read about the city of Hong Kong can be viewed from the Victoria Peak. You can reach this place through the Peak Tram. It is recommended to visit this place before sundown where you will have the glorious view of the city lights.
Lin Heung Teahouse
For those who want to experience the early period of Hong Kong, one of the ideal places to visit in Hong Kong would be the Lin Heung teahouse. The Lin Heung which is translated as Fragrant Lotus is also popular for their luscious dim sum. This teahouse is more than 10 years that exudes the 1960s ambiance of Hong Kong which is perhaps one of the reasons why most of their customers are old people. The place does not entirely embrace modernity so expect some language barrier when you visit this place.
Go on a Shopping Spree at Temple Street
In case you are looking for the most affordable items and souvenir in Hong Kong, you may want to experience the night market at the Temple Street. The place which is illuminated by traditional light bulb offers almost everything; from the counterfeit products to the bizarre medicines. It is also one of the best places to visit in Hong Kong for people watching. You can see the locals playing Chinese checkers on the bench, fortune tellers and the street foods that can rival the street foods in Thailand.
Ride the Star Ferry
If you are thinking about what to do in Hong Kong, you might want to experience the iconic ferry of Hong Kong. Unfortunately, due to the reclamation, the full ride has been reduced to a total of 8 minutes, but nonetheless, it can still be considered an engaging experience. It allows you to take a photo of the top places to visit in Hong Kong and you may also experience the Symphony of Lights where you will be enthralled by the show of fireworks that will illuminate the sky.
It is impossible to experience the entire city in just a single visit, but there are definitely things to do in Hong Kong that you shouldn’t miss such as the things we mentioned above.
