Hong Kong lays on one of the most diverse and dramatic metropolitan traveling experiences to be found anywhere on earth. The abundant natural and cultural attractions will keep visitors entertained from morning till night.
Victoria Peak and the Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront are the two biggies on almost every tourist's schedule in Hong Kong. The 552-meter-high Victoria Peak is the highest point of Hong Kong Island. From there, visitors can get that postcard-like view of the bustling city. The Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade is the vantage point to watch the nightly light and sound show, A Symphony of Lights. To cross the harbour from Tsim Sha Tsui, Star Ferry is the most relaxing and popular transport.
Hong Kong is an extremely family-friendly travel destination. Besides two state-of-art amusement parks, Ocean Park at Aberdeen and Disneyland on Lantau Island, the city has a number of great museums providing interactive activities in English, Cantonese and Mandarin. The Hong Kong Science Museum and Heritage Museum, both in Tsim Sha Tsui East are top of the bill. Ladies Market in Mongkok is a treasure chest of souvenirs.
For a taste of nature, both Sai Kung in the eastern New Territories and Lantau Island have lush mountains, brilliant beaches and idyllic, old-school fishing villages.
