Take a deep breath and immerse yourself in the unique vibe of the island city
You might think you know what to expect while on holiday in Hong Kong. Towering skyscrapers along a dramatic shoreline, brightly lit streets bursting with unique sounds and smells, hustle and yes, bustle. Yet nothing can prepare you for just how vibrant this place really is.
So if you've got bucket loads of energy, a sense of adventure and a decent pair of sunglasses, throw yourself into sensory overload and take a cheap flight to Hong Kong. And when you think you can't take any more, take a trip to one of the outlying islands and enjoy a well-deserved change of pace.
Featuring Victoria Peak, Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car, Po Lin Monastery, skyscrapers, Tian Tan Buddha, Deep Water Bay, Happy Valley Racecourse, Ocean Park, Temple Street Night Market and the Symphony of Lights.
You can't visit Hong Kong without seeing the skyline at dusk from Victoria Peak. It's like a rule. So don't fight it, just do it. You'll love it.
The fun starts when the sun goes down at Temple Street Night Market. Where else can you haggle for a watch, hear your fortune and be serenaded by an operatic busker?
You don't have to go upmarket to eat like an emperor. Street stalls and food halls dish up astonishing meals, and once you've eaten Hong Kong Dim Sum, nothing else will do.
A trip to Lantau Island will make your head spin. Literally. Look down from the Ngong Ping cable car, or up at the giant Buddha and you'll see what we mean.
Hong Kong locals know Lamma Island is the perfect place to chill out. So if you need a break from the bright lights, hop on a ferry and hit the beach.
