7 Top Things To Do in Hong Kong – Discover Hong Kong with These Activities

Hong Kong is a lively city that offers a plethora of things to do and see. Try out these seven activities while you're there for some unforgettable fun!


Enjoy a View of the City from Victoria Peak

Hike up to Victoria Peak for a stunning view of the island as it stretches out below you. This is a popular holiday destination for locals and tourists, so you will find plenty of restaurants and shops nearby. You can also pick up a souvenir or two at the many tourist shops in the area. If you like your wax figurines, you'll be pleased to note that you can also find a Madame Tussauds here.


Go Bar Hopping

Craving for a fun night out? Go on a bar hopping spree in Lan Kwai Fong. There's always a party going on after sundown. Worried about getting back to your hotel or Hong Kong serviced residence late at night? Don't be. This lively area is easily accessible from many of the island's accommodation options. If you are staying at Citadines Harbourview Hong Kong, for example, Lan Kwai Fong is around a 10-15 minute taxi drive away.


Ride the Observation Wheel

Another way to get a good view of the lay of the land is to ride the Hong Kong Observation Wheel. It's a similar concept to England's London Eye. During the ride, you can get a good look at Central Ferry Pier. If you decide to try the Observation Wheel, you might as well do it after dark. This way you can enjoy the dazzling lights show that is put on in the skies above the harbour.


Sample Local Street food

People hardly ever eat in by necessity in Hong Kong. It's a country that's known for its abundance of cheap and delicious street food. While you're holidaying there, make sure to try out iconic local favourites. These include pineapple bread, egg tarts, fish balls, siu mai and fried chestnuts.


Catch a Show

For a cultured evening on the island, stop by Hong Kong City Hall. There're always a number of plays and music concerts being put on here. Many of them are performed by internationally acclaimed artists; the shows by the renowned Cantonese Opera are also held at Hong Kong City Hall. So make sure to book your tickets ahead of time to ensure that you secure a good seat.


Ride the World's Longest Escalator

Did you know? Hong Kong is home to the planet's longest outdoor escalator network! It might be hard at first to imagine such a concept, but it works quite well for the Hong-Kongese. The Central Mid-level Escalator system provides an easy way to travel; especially in an area that can get quite tedious to cover on foot, owing to the steep inclines of the roads. When you want a break from riding the escalators, hop off and head out to one of the many restaurants and shops that flank it.


Cruise the Waters Between Kowloon & Hong Kong Island

Embark on a ferry cruise across the waters that stretch out between Kowloon and Hong Kong Island. The services that depart from the Central Ferry Pier are one of the most popular ways to traverse this stretch. The Pier is situated within close proximity to the Hong Kong Observation Wheel. So, you can combine your visits to these two destinations to save time.
