Time Square, Causeway Bay 2004

Charles Chan

Hong Kong Island is for many people either the place where they take the ferry to Kowloon or where they have to do some serious business. Although it does not have that many hotspots to visit, there are a few cultural options that you might want to try. The Wong Tai Sin temple, for example, is one of the most impressive Buddhist complexes in Hong Kong. Besides that, there are a couple of quite good museums. Especially the museum of Art and the Flagstaff House are worth a visit. The latter is one of the oldest preserved colonial buildings with an impressive collection of all sorts of tea ware. An absolute must is to visit 'Victoria's Peak'. At the highest point of the island, you'll have a spectacular view of the surroundings. At night, you can see the sparkling lights of Kowloon trying to tempt you to come over to the other side.
