POPULAR TOURIST ATTRACTIONS IN HONG KONG
If you only have a few days spare in Hong Kong, then we at Select Representation recommend the following 5 attractions.
Step aboard the fabulous double-decker “Shining Star” ferry, a beautiful re-creation of the ferries that plied Victoria Harbour in the 1920s. Tickets can be purchased at the Harbour Tour ticket counter at the Tsim Sha Tsui Star Ferry Pier and the Central Pier 7 on the date of departure. Options include a single or round trip to / from Kowloon to Hong Kong Island, an afternoon or sunset cruise.
Hong Kong Disneyland
When you think of Disney you tend to think of Orlando, California or Paris. Opened in September 2005, Hong Kong Disneyland is located on reclaimed land in Penny’s Bay, Lantau Island and proves to be especially popular to the Asian market. The park has a capacity for 34,000 visitors and consists of 7 themed areas. The recent opening of a Disney park in Shanghai will no doubt have a effect on visitors from China!
Ngong Ping 360 & Lantau Island
Gong Ping Cable Car is a spectacular 5.7k m cable car. It is the first of its kind in Hong Kong and the journey begins from Tung Chung, crossing Tung Chung Bay to reach the station on Airport Island before turning towards North Lantau. Visitors will no doubt enjoy some of the best views during the 25-minute ride. Views of the South China Sea and the rolling grassland hills of North Lantau Country Park are a wonderful escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. The journey takes in view of Hong Kong International Airport, Lantau Island, Tian Tan Buddha and the 360-degree view of Ngong Ping Plateau.
If there is only one thing you can do in Hong Kong, go to The Peak. The highest point on Hong Kong Island, has long been the city’s most exclusive neighbourhood since colonial times due to the cooler climate. The amazing views (weather permitting!) make The Peak one of the most popular attractions in Hong Kong. By day or night, the views are simply breathtaking. The main vantage point has a large viewing platform called Sky Terrace 428 and also a number of restaurants and shops. The best way to get the top is aboard the Peak Tram.
The famous Ladies Market is located in the Tung Choi Street Tung, Mong Kok. This has become a must-visit shopping destination for both local and foreign tourists. Market stalls sell household goods, clothing, cosmetics, handbags, watches, jewellery, toys, leather goods, electrical appliances and more. Usually stalls open from noon to 11 pm. There are also many food stalls nearby.
