Best attractions in Hong Kong - Wonder at every turn!

Packed with an enormous number of attractions and activities, Hong Kong draws in people from all corners of the world. Here is a list of some of the best and most memorable attractions in Hong Kong to check out during your visit.

1

Avenue of Stars

Sightseeing in HK is a fun and exciting activity as there's so much to see, one such example is the Avenue of Stars. A while ago Hong Kong had one of the strongest film outputs that were only bested by the likes of Hollywood and Bollywood. While it may not be as glorious as it was back then, it still produced some of the best movie legends around, like Jackie Chan, Bruce Lee, Jet Li, John Woo, Wong Kar-wai and the Shaw Brothers. Avenue of Stars pays tribute to all these icons along with many others who have long upheld the cinematic heritage of Hong Kong. You'll be able to take selfies with sculptures of these artists beside the waterfront and check out their handprints on the plaques as well.

Ocean Park Hong Kong

One of the original theme parks to set up in Hong Kong, it is still also one of its most beloved. Located on the south side of Hong Kong Island, a key highlight here is the adorable pair of resident pandas Le Le and Ying Ying. Other interesting activities include a cable car ride over the cliffs and its assortment of adrenaline-pumping roller coasters. If you're visiting in October, the Halloween festivities here are some of the best around. When you're on the lookout for accommodation, you'll be presented with a variety of great options, like the Cosmo Hotel Hong Kong for instance.

If it's fun you seek, there's no better place then Lan Kwai Fong, Hong Kong's party central. Whether it's a Friday or Saturday night, there's guaranteed to be people flocked all over the area. Here you'll be able to check out over ninety different restaurants and bars that are all packed into the district.

The Peak

The highest point on Hong Kong Island, The Peak offers the best views of the entire city. Here you'll be able to witness all the skyscrapers and towers in the city as well as the mountains as well. You can opt to take the Peak Tram which goes past the city's buildings at an incredible incline as it goes all the way up to 1300 feet above sea level. The view up top is simply stunning and the sunrise is one of the best, an experience that is guaranteed to be unforgettable.

Temple Street Night Market

While night markets are not as common in Hong Kong as they are in other Asian countries, the Temple Street Night Market here is extremely popular. Once the sun sets, various different stalls come up, selling a whole assortment of interesting items. You'll find apparel, accessories, watches and other knick-knacks that most tourists flock to take back home as souvenirs.
