Top 10 Things to do in Hong Kong

  1. Victoria Peak- best views of Hong Kong skyline; count your lucky stars if you hit it on a da with zero fog.
  2. HSBC Building – most expensive bldg at one time. Built with Feng Shui in mind and supposedly is the best feng shui location in all of HK
  3. Big Buddha Seek out the largest sitting buddha in Asia. He sits on Lantau Island is always a hit.
  4. Financial District on Sunday – Swarms of Filliipina women take over every square inch on this part of town on their 1 day off a week. I am not kidding, every square inch!
  5. Macau  MGM, Wynn, all the big names are there to temp your disposable income…only 45-minute ferry away!
  6. Stanley Market – great shopping on a much more residential side of HK island
  7. Star Ferry – shuttles visitors and locals alike across the bay that separates Kowloon from Hong Kong and is super cheap.
  8. Shop like a millionaire. Valentino, Ferragamo, Burberry, Hugo Boss and much more adorn the clean streets of this shopping paradise. Don’t forget your black amex!! If that is too rcih for your blood, day trip to Shenzhen!!
  9. Try Dim Sum – Everyone has their favorite. 5 top Dim Sum restaurants in HK
  10. Just wander. Hong Kong is built on the shell of old China and certain areas of town resemble that of a mid-century mainland city and very unlike the glitzy, modern skyscraper city of now. Try Mong Kok and Tsim Sha Tsui areas.

  1. I was in Hong Kong for Christmas a couple of years back loved it. Going up in the peak tram is an experience, I don’t know how that thing stays on the tracks at that angle.

    The wax museum is a novelty to have up there but by getting a ticket to see it you got to skip the huge line that was waiting to head up.

  2. Nice list. I’ve only been to the airport for a stopover, maybe next time I’m passing through I’ll stay a little longer.. 🙂
