Top 05 Reasons to Visit Hong Kong – The City That Never Sleeps

Not many travellers need convincing to plan a visit to vibrant Hong Kong. But, if you were to be given an insight as to what you can look forward to in the city that never sleeps; the following list should be more than convincing.

1

Relax at the World's Highest Bar

The pulsating nightlife of Hong Kong is no secret, but allowing revellers to take the party up a notch is the Ozone Bar. Located on the 118th floor, a staggering 1608 feet above ground, this chic bar is perfect to spend a relaxed evening at. Besides, the views are utterly stunning and those social media updates are going to draw loads of envious thumbs ups. By the way, the Ozone Bar is just 6 minutes from conveniently located Dorsett Mongkok Hong Kong, in case you are on the scout for a decent and comfy base to explore the city.

Enjoy Exploring the Many Hiking Trails

Hong Kong is a land of diverse environs, boasting lush hills, beautiful seascapes and loads of green space. The many hiking trails located throughout the city, offer visitors and locals a chance to experience the stunning surroundings from some of the most scenic platforms. The Morning Trail is super to experience the dramatic skyline of Hong Kong while Tai Long Wan and Dragons Back are perfect for engaging with nature and relaxing mind body and soul. Dragons Back is about 30 minutes from Mongkok hotels, and if you are based at one of them, planning that early morning sojourn to the breath-taking green ridge, which resembles a dragons back, can be done easily.

3

Become Addicted to Dim Sum

Hong Kong is the dim sum capital, and if you turn a brunch experience into a dim sum brunch, there's no looking back. Foodies get ready for a mega treat, you will be spoiled for choice with pan-fried rice rolls, soft and fluffy steamed buns stuffed with chicken, vegetables or char siu and loads of juicy dumplings bursting with flavour and all sorts of stuffing to choose from. Recommended are Yung Kee and Maxims City Hall restaurants for a laid back and inexpensive brunch of dim sum.

4

Get Lucky at the Horse Races

Continuing the British trends acquired over its long tenure as a colony nation, the horse races of Hong Kong are to be reckoned with and can turn out to be pretty exciting, especially if you have a few dollars riding on a favourite horse. Started in 1846, by the British, horse races continue, taking place every Sunday and Wednesday at the Sha Tin and Happy Valley racecourses. You will realise how popular the races are after attending one, where you will be treated to a carnival-like atmosphere with loads of food, drink and live music on the cards.

5

Enjoy a Cruise on a Junk

The best view of the city you can enjoy is one from the water, and there is no better way of cruising Victoria Harbour than on a traditional Chinese junk. The lovely vintage vessels with their red paint are perfect for that romantic back in time experience.
