Top 10 Things to include in the Hong Kong Bucket List- 10 Activities Every Traveller Must Enjoy in Hong Kong

Tipped to be one of Asia's most dynamic tourist hotspots, Hong Kong is a dream come true for active travellers. Here are some of the best ten things to do during a holiday in the destination.

1

Cruise on a Chinese Junk Boat

Regarded as one of the best ways to see Hong Kong from a truly different vantage point, signing up for a cruise onboard a conventional Chinese junk boat is a must for all visitors. Available through a plethora of local tour operators, the day time and night time tours are a great way to witness the Symphony of Lights from the water too.

2

Dig into Dessert

One of the island's most new-age food concepts is eating dessert before the mail and there are countless dessert cafes around Hong Kong that cater to the sweet temptation that beckons all tourists. The Blueberry Kiss is one such haunt where artisan desserts are sold and available all day and evening long.

3

Ride the Globe's Longest Escalator

Hong King offers travellers the chance to ride onboard the world's longest escalator that's located outdoors. The Central Mid Levels escalator ride takes visitors from the Central region of Hong Kong to the Western reaches of the island but is also a tourist highlight in its own right.

4

Pay Homage to the 10,000 Buddhas Monastery

As one of the country's most iconic religious attractions, no holiday in Hong Kong would be complete without a tour of the 10,000 Buddhas Monastery. Occupying pride of place atop the Po Fook Hill Mountains, this temple with a 9-floor pagoda is awe-inspiring, to say the least.

5

Take in the Views at The Peak

Ranked as the best lookout point in all of Hong Kong, taking in the panoramic views of the island from its most famous observation deck at The Peak is a veritable rite of passage for first-time visitors. The Sky Terrace offers 360-degree views on a clear day and provides travellers with the opportunity to explore the island's southern reaches.

6

Check out the Stars of Hong Kong Cinema

Often compared to the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the Hong Kong Stars is Hong Kong's version of the L.A tribute to the country's biggest screen legends. From Jackie Chan and Bruce Lee to other well-known action heroes, this unique highlight is a movie lover's dream come true in Hong Kong.

7

Shopping Spree at the Temple Street Night Market

While shopping in Hong Kong's mega department stores and malls is a must for all travellers, spending time scouring the Temple Street Night Market is an activity all travellers should experience at least once. Those based at the Park Hotel Hong Kong or any similar 4 star hotels in Hong Kong will find that their accommodation provider is within close range of the market.

8

Enjoy the Nightlife Scene in Lan Kwai Fong

Declared Hong Kong's unofficial party capital, club-hopping or bar-hopping down Lan Kwai Fong is a great way to spend the night in the island. With over ninety drinking holes and restaurants occupying its confines, this party street is also home to a plethora of karaoke bars and nightclubs.

9

Buy Gifts at the Ladies Market

onsidered one of the country's biggest local markets, the Ladies Market is a treasure trove for those in search of big deals on female clothing and accessories.

10

Spend a Day at Disneyland
