Top 10 Attractions in Hong Kong – Fascinating Discoveries

Hong Kong is a popular place to visit and is home to many fascinating attractions. Tourists have more than one reason to choose Hong Kong as their essential travel destination.


Avenue of Stars

Hong Kong is very much famous as a movie destination. The Avenue of Stars is considered as the Hollywood of the East. It will give you the panoramic view of the city's most iconic sight: the glorious skyline, dramatically set against the Peak. The main highlight here is the walkway where one can see names and even handprints of famous Hong Kong actors and actresses of both the past and present.


The Peak

If you are running out of time, then relax. But do not miss the Peak. If your schedule is full, still you should not miss a visit here. This is the highest point on Hong Kong Island and has been an exclusive neighbourhood since colonial times with its cool air attracting the rich and famous. In the post air-conditioning era, you can experience the view of one of the world's most spectacular cityscapes.


Ocean Park Hong Kong

The Ocean Park opened in 1977 and it is a marine-life theme park where you can enjoy animal exhibits, thrill rides and shows. In 2012, its entertainment range was expanded with a world-class experience that blends entertainment with education and conservation. You can locate the park on the southern side of Hong Kong Island. It is spread across 915,000 square metres. The Waterfront and The Summit areas are connected by the Cable Car and Ocean Express funicular train. If you stay at a Wan Chai hotel Hong Kong such as Cosmopolitan Hotel Hong Kong, it will be easier to plan your schedule to visit the landmark sites of this metropolis.


Hong Kong Disneyland

Your kids will have a lot more magical memories in Hong Kong Disneyland. You will embark on a magical journey through seven themed lands! Every day, as the sunlight fades, you can see millions of tiny lights transform the entire park and present the best of Hong Kong Disneyland in a whole new way. The brightest of that is the all new 'Disney Paint the Night' night-time spectacular - a symphony of music and colour.


Ladies' Market

This is indeed good news for ladies. The market has more than 100 stalls of bargain clothing, accessories and souvenirs. The market has its name because of the large variety of ladies' accessories.


Temple Street Night Market

An ideal place to shop during the sunset. You can see traders laying out their wares and even opera singers and fortune tellers popping up one by one. Yes, this is the Temple Street Night Market, a popular street bazaar, named after a Tin Hau Temple located in the centre of its main area.


Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (and Golden Bauhinia Square)

Its aluminium roof is stunning with 40,000 square-metres. Widely known as HKCEC, this harbour-front expansion used top-down construction techniques to meet a challenge of limited land supply.


Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade

Take a stroll along Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade, starting from the colonial-era clock tower and you will come across quite a lot of things. If you have a passion for nature, your gaze will be drawn south to the dramatic topographical and architectural spectacle that is Hong Kong Island.


Sik Sik Yuen Wong Tai Sin Temple

If you like to learn more about Hong Kong's belief in superstitions, then visit this temple. It shelters three religions: Taoism, Buddhism and Confucianism. You will be captivated by its natural setting and beautifully ornamented buildings.


Clock Tower

Its height is amazing. The clock tower stands about 44 metres tall and was erected in 1915. This was part of the Kowloon–Canton Railway terminus. The once-bustling station is long gone, though this red brick and granite tower is now preserved as a Declared Monument.
