Hong Kong Must-Sees

Post by SteveP79 » Wed, 22 Apr 2009 10:12 am

Hey guys,

I'm making a very short trip to Hong Kong this weekend. Is anyone able to tell me 2 or 3 things I absolutely must do or see, given my time is short?

Thanks!

Depend if you are a get pissed in the bar sort or hike in the hills type.

Do the walk around the peak about a hour walk, go up by peaktram, then have the roller coaster bus ride down get the top deck front seat.

Wander around Langkwai fong at night try Young kee char shu and roast goose.

Catch a ride on the star ferry at dusk, for the best views of HK by night from Kowloon side, so book a restaurant in some of the night spots facing the island.

Take the old street tram from one end of the island to the other gives you a good view of the street life.

Take the longest escalators in the world, start at IFC and follow the path to conduit road and back down remember it switches from up to down during the day, it again gives you a good glimpse into life in the city to the markets up past all the expats bars. you can hop off if you see something interesting.

If you like a hike, there are plenty around and often an overlooked part of HK. you will be amazed at the number of hikes in the hills that really take you away from the hustle and bustle of the city. if time is short, just do the one at the end of Bowen road its pretty much level so no real sweat.

And try the dim sum in city hall, nice view of the harbour and one of the few places that still has trolleys, go early as theres always a big Q

If you want to see Hong Kong version of penguin island, go to central on Sunday (they block the roads off) and see what a half a million Filipinos, all huddled together singing and having picnics on the road looks like.

Plenty to do in HK.

SteveP79 - not much to add to QRM's list - if you have a couple of days and are willing to get up early and stay out late - then you can doo all of this fairly well.

Enjoy your time!

Cheers, Mr. P
