Best 6 Attractions in Hong Kong – Essential Experiences in a Magnificient Metropolis

The city of Hong Kong is a sprawling metropolis that is astonishing in regards to the sheer number of experiences it has to offer. Hong Kong dances along the line separating East and West.

1

Victoria Peak

This mountain, located towards the west of Hong Kong Island, is referred to throughout the city by locals as 'The Peak'. Although the summit is closed to the public, the surrounding area showcases spectacular views.

2

Hong Kong Disneyland

This is easily one of Hong Kong's most famous attractions, and is situated on Lantau Island, easily accessible from most 5 star hotels in Hong Kong. There's an incredibly broad range of attractions here for both children and those young-at-heart or looking to relive their childhood. The park is massive and divided into seven distinctly themed areas, such as Tomorrowland and Toy Story Land.

3

Ladies' Market

This is a hallmark of Hong Kong, and despite being called the Ladies' Market, it offers a fair amount of items for gentlemen as well. So what can you find here? Everything from cosmetics and fashion accessories to CDs, watches and bags all vie for your attention at this lively shopping locale.

4

Ocean Park Hong Kong

This is one of the most renowned theme parks in the world, and is ranked 13th in terms of attendance. This colossal amusement park covers an area of 226 acres and features a world-class aquarium, over 80 attractions and rides and a massive range of shows. If you're on vacation at a hotel nearby such as The Murray, Hong Kong, a visit to this internationally famous theme park is an essential experience.

5

Temple Street Night Market

It would be a real shame to visit Hong Kong and not drop by the city's biggest and most renowned night market. You can find a wide range of the most popular souvenirs Hong Kong has to offer, such as moulds of dragons, mobile accessories and Qipao dresses, but take a walk through the wide expanse of the market and the items you will come across are incredibly expansive. This is also one of the best places to explore the culinary culture of Hong Kong since you'll discover everything from Cantonese seafood to Japanese, Indian and authentic Italian cuisine.

6

Tsim Sha Tsui

This promenade is another hallmark of Hong Kong, and bears a name that translates into 'sharp sandspit'. The name is probably based on the fact that the promenade lies on a stretch of reclaimed land. This is a major tourist hub, and you can discover a multitude of places to explore. Incredibly, most of the city's museums are situated here, allowing you to experience and discover anything from the history of China to the future of science. Everything from the nation's museums of art and natural history, respectively, to the museums of science and space, are situated here. There's also a tremendous amount of shopping and eating to be enjoyed here as well, with more than eleven shopping centres and countless eateries available for your selection.
