If you build a contemporary city on a historic empire, put it at a crossroad of cultures, you have Hong Kong! You have to visit this amazing land to understand and know more about its grandeur and charm. Onboard one of the Hong Kong flights and on your visit here dive into a carnival, trek a mountain trail, catch a show, visit a temple, explore a walled village and do much more that you ever dreamt of.
If you are a first time visitor to the place and wondering where all to visit, then, there are some must visit places that will give you a complete glimpse of the place and let you enjoy to the fullest. Your first stop should be ‘The Peak’. On your visit to this amazing place, if you don’t see the dazzling lights from the top, it means you haven't been here at all. Take the red tramp to the place and get dialed by the radiance. The tramp, which runs up the mountainside, takes you on an unforgettable ride! Once you reach the top, there are numerous shops and restaurants where you can just chill out. If you want to beat the crowds or don’t want to take a steep tram ride, then you can reach the place by a taxi or a bus. Whatever it is, do not miss the chance to visit the place and explore why the city is known as the ‘Pearl of the Orient’.
Avenue of the stars can be your next stop. Located along the foreshore of Victoria Harbor and behind the New World Centre in Tsim Sha Tsui East, it is the film industry, which is no way less than the Los Angeles Sunset Boulevard. You can choose to visit it at any time of the day, but to really enjoy its beauty, nighttime is best. With colored lights illuminating your way all along the walkway, the Avenue of the Stars is the perfect site to watch the nightly Symphony of the Stars – a light show. If you plan to travel the island during the Christmas or New Year, then, you just can’t miss visiting this area!
This is not the end; your next stop can be the Ngong Ping and the Giant Buddha. Located on Lantau Island, near the Airport, the Tian Tan Buddha sits here. It is the largest outdoor sitting Buddha statue in the world and visitors from across the world visit it to pay greetings. It is well worth your time climbing the 260 steps for an up-close view of Buddha, the adjacent statues and amazing view that the height offers.
Once you are done with sightseeing and wish to indulge in shopping, then, there are plentiful options for you to indulge in. Gold fish markets, jade markets, ladies markets, night markets and more, the place is home to hundreds of markets and you will the chance to know more about the local culture of the place while shopping here.
