An awesome place : Hong Kong? Hong Kong is an incredible travel destination. As you might guess from the name, The Peak is the high point on Hong Island. And as you’d probably surmise, it offers the best views of the city – stretching from the skyscrapers and towers of the city centre to the mountains in the New Territories. It’s accessible by the Peak Tram, which passes the city’s buildings at a dizzying incline as it travels up to 1,300 feet above sea level. To get the best possible views at the top, we suggest you head to the viewing platforms at the anvil-shaped Peak Tower. Or if you fancy a hike, take a round around the 3.5km Peak Circle Walk, where you’ll get an astonishing bird’s-eye view of the metropolis below.
Hong Kong has one of the most impressive and recognizable skylines in the world. The dense collection of skyscrapers, both on the island of Hong Kong and in Kowloon, combined with the surrounding mountains and harbor set this city apart. In the harbor, traditional red-sailed Chinese junk boats and the historic Star Ferry contrast sharply with the backdrop of modern high-rises. At night, the skyline changes character completely as the sky darkens and the city lights fill the scene. Two of the best places in Hong Kong to see the skyline are from the top of Victoria Peak or from the Kowloon waterfront (along the Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade near the clock tower), not far from the Star Ferry dock, where benches line the waterfront and look across to Hong Kong. The latter location is the best place to watch the nightly A Symphony of Lights laser and light show set to music.
Preserving the natural ecological environment and features of the Ngong Ping area and converging the custom and culture of Lantau Island. Ngong Ping 360 is sure to refresh your body and enlighten your mind, as soon as you step on the Cable Car. Ngong Ping Village is set on a 1.5-hectare site on Lantau Island, adjacent to Ngong Ping Cable Car Terminal and the Tian Tan Buddha Statue. Looking up to the southwest from Tei Tan square in the middle of the Po Lin Monastery plaza, you will see a flight of 268 steps leading to the world’s largest outdoor bronze statue – the Giant Buddha. While Ladies Market is by far the bigger and brasher of the two, Fa Yuen Street is also a brilliant introduction to consumerism, Hong Kong style. There is so much to see and buy here that the path that runs down the centre is no wider than one person at some points while the stock is stacked so high that vendors need to use poles to retrieve many items.
How to get in or out of Hong Kong? We recommend flying, here is a reason : The first and foremost advantage is time saving. Secondly flight journey provides comfort by cosy relaxation, as i experienced flying with Cathay Pacific. Thirdly cabin įrews are supportive and providing various beverages and foods. Moreover we can ask blankets and back cushions to support the back to relax. On the other hand ,some may argue that there are certain problems in travelling by flight which includes expensive flight ticket, not able to sleep by lying like train journey. In my opinion advantages outweigh the disadvantages.
Located on the 100th floor of the International Commerce Centre, the views from Sky100 are simply divine; you can see all of Hong Kong and Victoria Harbor laid out below you. The 360-degree observation deck has a cafe where you can grab a bite to eat or drink while taking in the views, as well as a virtual reality attraction and photo booth. The panoramas on offer are just as stunning at night, when the city’s myriad of lights twinkle below you, glittering off the water around them. This lovely, laidback seaside town is the perfect place to head from Hong Kong if you want to escape the city for a bit. Its serene settings will replenish you after all the sightseeing. Located on the Sai Kung Peninsula, the town of the same name has lots of restaurants and bars for visitors to choose from; many opt to take a boat trip aboard an old junk. With lots of activities on offer such as sailing, scuba diving and sunbathing – as well as partying in the evening – Sai Kung is an excellent choice for a day trip.
