Try the Star Ferry

Just so you know, the country is divided into two: Hong Kong Island and the Kowloon Peninsula. The Star Ferry serves as the most convenient and cheapest way to go from one side to another. Also, it became one of the most famous icons in Hong Kong.

While onboard, you can enjoy the majestic view of the skyscrapers and the city’s skyline, which you can also see from Victoria Harbour. To get the best experience, it is highly recommended that you hop on to the upper deck.

Visit the Big Buddha

Did you know that the tallest seated buddha is also located in HK, particularly in Po Lin Monastery? It is called Tian Tan Buddha or more popularly known as Big Buddha.

The best way to reach this tourist spot is through the Ngong Ping 360 Skyrail cable car, wherein you can opt for the crystal cabin (the flooring is all mirror). This will also allow you to see a good view of Lantau Island.

Once you reach the monastery, you will see several restaurants as well as shops where you can buy souvenirs from. Prepare yourself, though, because you will have to walk, not to mention the 200 plus steps that you have to climb in order for you to get to the iconic Bog Buddha.

Shop at the Night Market

Many people also love to visit Kong Hong just to shop. This is because there are various night markets where locals and tourists can buy clothes, toys, shoes, accessories, and other stuff at low prices. You can really go shop til you drop!

Experience the Fun in Hong Kong Disneyland

Another attraction that you should head to while in the country, especially if you have kids with you, is Hong Disneyland. During the daytime, you can try different rides. You can also enjoy watching the light parade when the dark falls.

To make it more convenient for you, it is highly suggested that you get your ticket online. You may opt for a day’s ticket. Or if you think that one day is not enough for you, then you can buy the 2-day ticket.

The things highlighted above are just a few of the many things that you can do in Hong Kong. Book your flight now and experience the fun!
