Best And Amazing Places Must Visit in Hong Kong

Hong Kong Attractions:

Hong Kong is both a city in China and a state within a state with its own laws, traditions and customs. This is a place of amazing contrasts, where advanced technologies coexist with centuries-old traditions, skyscrapers, piercing clouds with their peaks, side by side with simple fishermen's houses, and huge shopping centers - with chaotic malls of floating markets. The sights of Hong Kong combine the flavor of oriental culture and the extraordinary contrast between antiquity and modernity. The population density here is fantastically high - about 6.4 thousand people per square kilometer, this explains the special beauty of the city panoramas - the dense jungle of skyscrapers aspire upwards not only in the business center of Hong Kong, but even on its outskirts. And now we will talk about the many attractions of Hong Kong. Here is a list of the most interesting options for what to see in Hong Kong. There are so many of them here that even a multi-day trip is not enough to cover all the memorable places.

1. Victoria Peak (western part of Hong Kong)

When planning what to visit in Hong Kong, be sure to pay attention to Victoria Peak. This is perhaps the most must-see attraction in Hong Kong for everyone who came here for the first time. This is the highest point on Hong Kong Island, located at an altitude of 0.552 km above sea level. In the 19th century, this peak was even used as a beacon for incoming ships. Today, there are several ways to climb to the heights to enjoy superb views.

  • One way is by bus. To do this, you should first get to the Central metro station, from where you can get to pier number 5 or number 7, where there will be a bus stop. The bus goes from the pier to the very top, but the travel time will be considerable - from 30 minutes to an hour. The road is winding, but there are interesting views along the way.
  • The most budgetary way, difficult, but at the same time, full of impressions, is climbing the peak on foot. To do this, get to the Central or Hong Kong subway station, walk to the escalator and climb to the very top. When you get up, turn left onto Conduit Road, walk to Old Peak Road and walk up it, watching the city views gradually give way to forest ones. The walk will take about half an hour in total.
  • And, of course, the most popular and easiest option is to take the famous Peak Tram funicular, which has been operating since 1888. Its only disadvantage is that there are many people who want to climb, and you will have to stand in a long queue. Direct travel time will be about 7 minutes.

At the top of the mountain there are several viewing platforms with stunning views of the bay, green outskirts, and the view of the city with its skyscrapers and colossal infrastructure opens up in full view here. Here, at a height, there are also a lot of restaurants and cafes with dizzying views from the windows, as well as shops, an exhibition gallery and the Madame Tussauds wax museum.

2. Disneyland in Hong Kong (Lantau Island)

Since 2005, children and adults have been pleased with another relatively new attraction in Hong Kong - Disneyland. The most exciting attractions and entertainments in the best traditions of Disneyland function here.

The peculiarity of Disneyland in Hong Kong is that it is built according to local traditions and feng shui rules. The park includes several zones of various themes:

  • Main Avenue USA;
  • Adventure World;
  • World of the future;
  • Fantasy world.

Despite the fact that the park itself is relatively small in area - 27.4 hectares, the most extreme and exciting rides are concentrated here, something interesting and exciting is at every step, there are a lot of small restaurants, souvenir shops, and every evening a bright show with fireworks. On national holidays, special themed events are held here.

Among the attractions, the following deserve special attention:

  • Grizzly Gorge is an entertainment that is only in Hong Kong Disneyland. Here you go on an exciting journey on a trolley through wild natural landscapes and various unexplored tracts of land, and various surprises await you along the way, as well as grizzly bears.
  • The country of toys is the country where the cartoon characters loved by everyone “live”. There are three exciting rides here - a racing car on a 27-meter arc, the Toy Soldier Parachute Drop flying fun and the Slinky Dog Spin zigzag ride.
  • Other attractions include fairy tales, 3D entertainment, alien shows, a railroad ride through the park, a Broadway musical and more.

3. Tsim Sha Tsui Avenue (South of Kowloon)

You don't have to choose what to see in Hong Kong if you decide to visit Tsim Sha Tsui Avenue - this street passes by the most popular and important sights of Hong Kong. The avenue originates from the Clock Tower and stretches along the entire cultural center of the city. Each of the attractions located along it is worthy of attention. That is why Tsim Sha Tsui attracts so many tourists, especially shopaholics. After all, a real paradise for shopping fans has been created here - a lot of shops, shopping centers, restaurants are located on Tsim Sha Tsui.
