Sightseeing

Fantastic place to view the Hong Kong Skyline which is the number 1 attraction in Hong Kong. At the peak there are a number of restaurants if you wish to dine overlooking the skyline. There is also a number of walking paths around the peak with some spectacular views. If you can help it try avoid going on weekends because the traffic can be really congested up there during the weekend. You can catch a bus up there form exchange square which is next to IFC.

The charming Star Ferry boats have been faithfully carrying passengers from Hong Kong Island to Kowloon and back since 1888. While the two sides of Victoria Harbour are now connected by a world-class infrastructure system of road and rail tunnels, tens of millions of people still climb aboard the humble Star Ferry vessels each year. Many visitors take the ride for an up-close look at one of the world’s most photographed harbours, while locals have kept their affection for it because, even after a century, it’s still a highly reliable and efficient form of transport. National Geographic rates the Star Ferry crossing as one of 50 ‘places of a lifetime’.

With over 100 stalls of bargain clothing, accessories and souvenirs, the Ladies’ Market on Tung Choi Street provides a one-kilometre stretch on which to practise your haggling skills. It gets its name from the huge amount of clothing and accessories on sale for women of all ages; however, with watches, cosmetics, bags, home furnishings, CDs and trinkets also up for grabs, you don’t need to be just in the market for a pair of nylon stockings to find something within its crowded aisles. Usually kicks off after 10:30-11am Until late in the evening

Once merely a remote monastery hidden by lush, mountain scenery, the Po Lin Monastery made it to the world map when the extraordinary Tian Tan Buddha statue (informally known as the Big Buddha) was erected in 1993. Sitting 34 metres high and facing north to look over the Chinese people, this majestic bronze Buddha draws pilgrims from all over Asia. To get there catch the Tung Chung line train to Tung Chung. From there you can catch a bus or take a cable car to the top. Note: the cable car gets very busy on the weekends!

Starting at the colonial-era Clock Tower and stretching all the way to Hung Hom, a stroll along the Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade takes one past the Hong Kong Cultural Centre and the Hong Kong Space Museum. But like most of the love birds and shutterbugs on the promenade, your gaze will be drawn south to the dramatic topographical and architectural spectacle that is the Hong Kong Island skyline towering over the busy waters of Victoria Harbour. You will end up here if you take the Star Ferry from central side or its easy to catch the MTR here

A nice way to spend a day on the other side of the island. There is a small market here, but nowhere near as big as the ladies market on Kowloon side. There is a sandy beach where you can take a swim. You can also sit seaside and dine at one of many restaurants overlooking the sea. To get there catch a bus from exchange square next to IFC.

When the sun goes down, the traders have already laid out their wares and the opera singers and fortune tellers begin to emerge. Welcome to the Temple Street Night Market, a popular street bazaar, named after a Tin Hau temple located in the centre of its main drag, and a place so steeped in local atmosphere that it has served as the backdrop to many a memorable movie. Trinkets, tea ware, electronics, watches, menswear, jade and antiques are scrutinised and haggled over, while claypot rice, seafood, noodles and other treats are consumed with gusto. Temple Street Night Market is an enduring example of the theatre and festivity of a Chinese market. And it’s on show nightly. Location Temple Street, Yau Ma Tei, Kowloon (Red MTR line, get off at Yau Ma Tei)

Horse racing became a fixture in Hong Kong in 1841 but enjoyment of this sport was originally confined to the city’s elite. Today, a trip to one of the city’s world-class tracks – Happy Valley on Hong Kong Island or Sha Tin in the New Territories – will confirm that it has very much gone mainstream since. The racing season starts in September and runs to July of the following year. Any meeting will provide a taste of the local passion for racing, with hundreds of fans armed with racing guides intently listening to radio commentary, gripping their betting sheets and cheering on their favourites. To experience all the real glamour and spectacle of the sport, try to see the Hong Kong Derby, the Queen Elizabeth II Cup or the ‘turf world championship’ Hong Kong International Races, when some of the richest racing purses in the sport attract horses and jockeys from all over the world and the competition is intense. Usually on every Wednesday night.
