What are the five things to do during a short visit to Hong Kong? – Five classic Hong Kong features

Hong Kong is very appealing as a travel destination. The country brims with attractions making your hands full with things to do. Your visit may be a short one, but you should make the most of it.


Visit Temple Street Night Market

This is an absolute must-do if you are visiting Hong Kong. Located close to Dorsett Mongkok, the market is vibrant and lively; you’ll see tourists and locals pacing up and down enjoying the spectacle while trying to strike the best bargain. Among the things you can buy are teapots, quirky Chinese items and souvenirs. The night market is also famous as a spot to find the best street food in Hong Kong.


Enjoy a drink at a rooftop bar

Hong Kong is known for its rooftop bars, and every bar is spectacular in every way, so it might be a little hard to decide which is best. You can choose the one that catches your fancy and go for a drink – there’s nothing better than sipping on a cocktail in the full view of Hong Kong skyline.


Explore the central district

Central is the host to numerous dim sum restaurants, and also some iconic buildings; scattered among the modern skyscrapers are the colonial-style buildings. You should take a little of your time to admire the architectural adeptness of these places. At the end of your exploring tour, you can stop at one of the dim sum restaurants and try out some dim sum.


Symphony of Lights

This is the most sought after attraction in Hong Kong, every tourist visiting the country wants to be witness to this amazing spectacle. Earning the world record for being the largest permanent light show in the world, the extravaganza attracts many tourists into the country. The iconic buildings on both sides of the harbour light up in unison to create a sparkly display that illuminates the skyline. The show starts at 8 pm, and it goes on for about ten minutes.


Get sporty at GreenLive AIR

Enjoy a game of golf during your short stay. You don’t have to worry about the weather as these are indoor golf courses. The place is open from 9 am to 9 pm every day.


Do some shopping

This goes without saying, shopping is an essential part of all foreign travels, and Hong Kong has a number of cutting edge shopping malls. You should cut down on accommodation cost by staying at a budget hotel in Hong Kong; use that money to enjoy the delights of these malls. In case you are in Hong Kong during a layover, there are a few malls located close to the airport as well – Maritime Square and Citygate Outlets are two such shopping malls you should consider visiting.


The Peak

There is nothing comparable to taking the tram up Victoria Peak; this is the highest point of Hong Kong that offers tourists breathtaking views of Hong Kong harbour. The queue for the activity can be quite long if you want to take the tram up, but if you don’t want to wait, you can take the bus alternatively.
