10 attractions in Hong Kong you should never miss - The must do's

Simplicity is rising too late for Hong Kong. Rich of scenery, Hong Kong is wrapped in a variety of activities for its visitors who at times outnumber its own inhabitants.

1

Reach Peak

Take the Peak Tram and reach the peak. Peak Tram is a 120-year old funicular railway departing from the Garden Road. If you get here at least half an hour before the sun sets, you will be able to watch the city lights in a multitude of colours.

2

Lin Heung Tea House

Lin Heung will throw you back to the very old version of Bangkok. Do not expect any special treatment as a foreigner, for they won't give you that privilege. In fact, the best option is to go there in the company of a local ally. Otherwise, you will be more likely to face communication difficulties.

3

Charter a Junk

Sounds unfamiliar? Junk is a traditional Chinese fishing boat now used to transport guests across islands. Charter one and indulge in the sight of the islands.

4

Pools

Most 4 star hotels in Hong Kong the likes of Dorsett Tsuen Wan and several others, offer you the amenity of pools. Some of them also come along with other bonus facilities such as pool butlers. Do not miss that opportunity.

5

Helicopter tour

A helicopter tour will give you the precious chance to sight the whole of Hong Kong in an aerial view.

6

Cha Chan Teng

This restaurant, though ancient in time, would hold you in its unique thrall. Yes, that soya sauce chicken spaghetti and pork chop sound utter bore. But not quite so at Cha Chan Teng. The crowds almost all the time thronged here would bear enough testimony to that. Go, experience it to yourself.

7

Star Ferry

They have reduced the time on the water. All the same, it is really worth experimenting the star ferry. If you have a tight budget, go for the lower deck. But if you are okay with dishing out a few dollars more, go for the upper deck and avoid that diesel engine noise.

8

Chungking Mansions

Chungking Mansions greet you to an unseen chapter of Hong Kong. It houses the complex of five towers of 17 floors, money changers, guesthouses, restaurants, shops, and corporate offices. At least 5000 occupy here with an influx of about 10,000 guests. Business is very much thriving here – it is happening almost endlessly.

9

The roof of the IFC Mall

Get to the roof of the IFC Mall and you are surrounded by a chain of bars and restaurants. Do not worry, you can bring whatever food you like from the outside and consume here. Although the bars and restaurants belong to the mall, they cannot say anything if you choose to have your own food in the tables and armchairs outside.
