The best places to visit in Hong Kong

Bursting with energy and alive with cultural diversity, Hong Kong is a melting pot that reflects both its Chinese heritage and British administration. ‘Asia’s World City’ is renowned for its glittering skyscrapers, sensational nightlife and world-class shopping. Let the energy of Hong Kong get under your skin as you stand on Kowloon’s alluring promenade at Tsim Sha Tsui, looking out over floating junk boats to see the iconic skyline, a dazzling field of illuminated skyscrapers towering beneath Victoria Peak. By contrast, step back in time to a world of painted dragons and ancient rituals, explore gilded temples and hunt for jasmine tea in traditional markets.

The view from The Peak

Victoria Peak

The Peak

For a bird’s-eye view of the city, ride the historic tram to the pinnacle of Victoria Peak on Hong Kong Island. The tram first ascended to the 554m summit in 1888, and today you’ll find various restaurants, souvenir shops and museums at the top. But the stand-out attraction is the fabulous view of Hong Kong below you; go at sunset to see the harbour light up before your very eyes. 

Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade

Famous promenade

Over the water in Kowloon, take in Hong Kong's glittering skyline from the buzzing waterside promenade at Tsim Sha Tsui. Lined by the Avenue of Stars, Hong Kong’s version of the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the promenade starts at the Star Ferry terminal and takes in the Hong Kong Cultural Centre, the Hong Kong Space Museum and the Bruce Lee statue. Go in the evening to see the Symphony of Lights show illuminate the skyscrapers with lasers.

Shop ‘til you drop

Join the crowds along Kowloon's busiest thoroughfare, the best place for souvenir shopping and authentic Cantonese cuisine. Look out for Chinese silk, jasmine tea, fortune tellers and performers from the Peking Opera, who serenade passers-by with their unique style of singing. Although the market opens in the afternoon, come after dark for the best atmosphere and the tempting smells of street food wafting through the air.

Big Buddha

Lantau Island

Lantau Island

Hong Kong’s largest island

If you visit just one of Hong Kong’s outlying islands, make it Lantau, home to Hong Kong Disneyland, the airport, Tian Tan Buddha (a.k.a the Big Buddha) and the Po Lin Monastery. The hilly interior is carpeted in forests, offering plenty of cycling and walking paths, while various deserted beaches can be found along its periphery. It couldn’t be easier to reach Lantau by ferry from Central Hong Kong, or take the Ngong Ping 360 cable car.
