With a diversity that defies definition, Hong Kong, as a city, stands out in the list of the many global cities that our world offers. With a culture that speaks of centuries of history, a newcomer can easily find himself lost in the wonder that is Hong Kong. With glittering skyscrapers vying villages perched on stilts in the sea, Hong Kong is as fascinating as it is exciting.
Start your trip by enjoying a panoramic view of the city from the Victoria Peak. Take a day out to visit the beautiful Lantau Island. Go for a cable car ride from Ngong Ping 360. Visit the Po Lin Monastery as well as the Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery. Other attractions like Hong Kong Disneyland as well as Ocean Park, Hong Kong should not be missed either! Hong Kong also brings to the table other attractions like the Clock Tower, the Lamma Island as well as the magnificent Hong Kong Space Museum.
You should also take some time out to visit the Hong Kong Heritage Museum, the Man Mo Temple, the Hong Kong Museum of Art and the Kowloon Walled City. The cuisine found in Hong Kong is also an experience that is worth exploring. Mainly influenced by Cantonese cuisine, you should definitely try some dim sum! Other dishes that must be had include a helping of a stuffed roasted sucking pig and some beef brisket. The adventurous can even try their hands at some snake soup, some egg tarts and Hong Kong’s beloved Hot Pot!
Along with Hong Kong’s wonder, many travellers also take some time out to travel to Macau, a wondrous retreat close to Hong Kong that offers glamorous casinos, beautiful beaches and fantastic restaurants! Enjoy the diverse nightlife of this city in famed casinos like the Wynn Macau, the Grand Lisboa and the Sands Macao. In the day, though, you can start exploring by getting a bird’s eye view of the city from the Macau Tower.
You should also visit the ruins of St. Paul’s church as well as the A-Ma temple and the museum of Macau. Other highlights of the trip must include Fortaleza do Monte, the Grand Prix Museum as well as the Macau Wine Museum. You can also take some time out to explore the Macau Fisherman’s Wharf, the Sun Yat Sen Park, Ponte 16 as well as Ponte Flor de Lotus!
