Sights in Hong Kong

Edit This

Hong Kong is one of the best tourist destinations in the world. Despite Hong Kong’s expensive reputation, you don’t have to spend a lot of money to have a plentiful and worthwhile experience here. When traversing this large city use the subway system as much as possible. The subway system here is clean and easy to follow. Even if you are staying in Hong Kong for only one day, seriously consider buying a public transportation card. You can use it for buses and the subways and save yourself a lot of hassle and wasted time in long lines buying tickets.

Ferry Rides

Kowloon is across the river from the official city of Hong Kong, but they feel like one big city. Many tourists choose hotels in Kowloon because they are cheaper than the hotels in Hong Kong proper. There are great restaurants and shopping on both sides. To get to the other side of the river you can take the subway or one of Hong Kong’s famous feries. The ferry is a fun and inexpensive mini-adventure for people of all ages and fitness levels. The journey from one side to the other lasts about 10 minutes. You can also use Hong Kong’s ferry system to visit other tourist destinations on the neighboring islands.

Victoria Peak

Hong Kong Victoria Peak is a destination everyone can enjoy. This high peak looks out over Hong Kong and Victoria Harbor. Transportation both up to and down from Victoria Peak is available by both the city bus (double decker) and a tourist trolley. The secret is to take the public bus up and the trolley down. All the other tourists will be doing the opposite; there are long lines to take the trolley up to the peak. At the top there are beautiful views you will want to be photographed with. There is also a shopping mall, restaurants, a convenience store and an ATM.

Symphony of Lights

Guinness Book of World Records awarded Hong Kong’s Symphony of Lights the title “World's Largest Permanent Light and Sound Show”. This multimedia presentation is a daily event, unless there is a tropical cyclone warning. Hong Kong’s most famous buildings light up with musical accompaniment. It is really quite spectacular and will be imprinted on you mind forever as your vision of Hong Kong. No one in your group will be left out of this famous Hong Kong site. You can view the Symphony of Lights by standing or sitting along the Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront. There is also the option of viewing the light show from a boat or the comfort of your hotel room.

Tian Tan Buddha

Lantau Island

To talk about the Tian Tan Buddha, you need to talk about the Po Lin Monastery, and to talk about the Po Lin Monastery, you need to talk about the island of Lantau. Of all the outlying islands from Hong Kong, the greatest in size is Lantau with a land area twice that of Hong Kong. The people of Lantau follow a very rural lifestyle, almost untouched by time, that has endured the fall of emperors, the British colonization and the decay of empires. Despite being larger than Hong Kong, this island has less population and more..
