Travel
 

Hong Kong is renowned for its expansive skyline with the surrounding mountains and deep natural harbour complementing the skyscrapers. It is a small and easy-to-navigate city with an amazing mix of Eastern and Western culture. As a major international destination for travelers around the world, it has a little bit of everything for everyone. Most shops and restaurants open until 10pm or 11pm, and there are so many things to do here, making Hong Kong such a dynamic city.

Dining

You should never miss Dim Sum - steamed food in bamboo containers. Shrimp dumplings and barbecued pork buns are classic dishes. Drinking tea and eating dim sum at restaurant is definitely a top choice for brunch or lunch affair.

If you want to try eating street side, Dai Pai Dong (open-air street-stalls) will give you a unique dining experience. Hong Kong’s home-style stir-fried sweet and sour pork is better than the same dish you find in other places.

You may also try Cha Chan Teng (tea-house with Hong Kong-style local and western cuisine). Order the Stocking Milk Tea which is smooth and creamy and have a bite of pineapple bun or egg tart.

Hong Kong is also a good place for fine dining and award-winning dishes. There are more than 60 Michelin-starred restaurants listed this year including Chinese and western cuisine. You will definitely find your own favorite restaurants in Hong Kong.

Top attractions

Victoria Harbour is the most iconic sight of Hong Kong. Walking along the Avenue of Stars or taking a ride of Star Ferry from Hong Kong Island to Kowloon will allow you to capture the stunning view of our symbolic harbour.

You should also take the Peak Tram to The Peak. It is the highest point on Hong Kong Island offering the most spectacular view of dazzling cityscapes and Victoria Harbour.

If you want some excitements and adventures, there are two theme parks: Ocean Park Hong Kong and Hong Kong Disneyland.

The outlying islands, villages and undulating mountain paths are never far away.  You can take Ngong Ping 360 to explore The Lantau Island and visit the Big Buddha which is the famous outdoor seated bronze Buddha statue.  In Tai O fishing village, you can take a boat trip to see Hong Kong’s exotic stilt houses, and spot the Hong Kong “pink” dolphins, if you are lucky.
