    Only 2 days in exhilerating Hong Kong!

    by angiebabe Updated Jan 25, 2015

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    HK is a fabulous place to be - have a read back through the HK forum as this question's been asked a lot and youll get a lot of info from previous answers - also check out travelpages already made by other VTers...Ive not really made mine! But I had 6 weeks once (I lived in Sha Tin so had to get to know the trains and buses to get around) and had a fab time.
    The Lonely Planet guidebook for HK and China was brilliant for me back then and its still exceptionally helpful - I actually still dont go anywhere without a guidebook regardless of what I get from here as they are so full on for independent travellers.

    But there are the standard must-dos such as going across the harbour on the ferries, up Victoria Peak, seek out the places that are still old and original such as fishing villages on any of the islands and some of the little streets tucked away below Victoria Peak area, 2 days is not really long enough to fit in a visit to Macau but its possible - I loved visiting Macau.

    and of course go eat some of the best Chinese cuisine in the world! ie go have Yum Cha/Dim Sum and have a bowl of noodles or rice and barbecue pork (chao su fan) or duck (chao ya fan) from one of the many noodle shops.

    out on the harbour night views of the beautiful harbour fantastic, wonderful food always something happening Victoria peak - great even when its a foggy night

    Kowloon Masjid and Islamic Centre

    by HebaM Written Jan 22, 2015

    I wanted to learn about the Muslim community in Hong Kong. So I decided to pay a visit to Kowloon Mosque and it was a great experience.
    The mosque is beautiful and huge from inside. I prayed at the women's section which located on the upper floor. I noticed that most of the worshipers are from Indonesia and India, it was a very friendly atmosphere and the library is full of great educational Islamic books and many copies of the Quran translated into English Indonesian and Chinese
    What I founded weird is there was no call to pray/ Azan!!! I had to check the praying times app on my mobile which was different from what I've been informed by one of the women there.

    Hong Kong's New Ferris Wheel

    by IreneMcKay Updated Dec 12, 2014

    When I returned to Hong Kong after spending the summer in Europe, I was surprised to see a semi-built ferris wheel on the waterfront at Central. Each day when I went to the bus stop to wait for my bus up to work, a new part of the wheel would be visible. Despite the fact it has been complete for a while, the wheel has only just become open in December 2014.

    I stood and watched it rotating slowly before my visit to the cinema last Tuesday and when I left after the film the wheel was beautifully lit up at night.

    It is a slow rotating wheel which is there for viewing purposes. It looks out over Victoria Harbour.

    The wheel was the idea of the company Swiss AEX who also built the Bangkok Ferris Wheel. The wheel is 60 metres high and has 42 gondolas which can each hold 8 to 10 passengers. It will operate daily from 10am to 11pm for daytime and night time views. A ride on the wheel costs $100 for adults and $70 for children.

    Hong kong streets

    by shavy Updated Nov 2, 2014

    Streets in Hong Kong conform to the contours of the hill landscape in the city. Streets on the north side of Hong Kong Island and southern Kowloon have a grid like pattern.

    The streets of Hong Kong are jumbled pedestrians. They are also surrounded by numerous shops, Chinese medicine stores, and street markets that give Hong Kong a unique flavor

    If you go shopping or just wandering to one street to another in Hong kong, you will find your self still in the commercial street. I have noticed this street is more like a jewelry street, which are not too crowded. And area for most locals

    We had so much fun walking around, exploring shops,many malls. And is very interested to see the outer side of the city.

    Some area in Hong kong we really feel like we are in China. I would say Hong kong is a city with two faces. One side of the city is pretty modern while the other side is really old. It is very interesting if you seen them both while in the city

    A Symphony of Lights

    by shavy Written Nov 1, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Exactly at 8:00 pm the light show is one of the highlight to watch during night time in the city. The best place to watch the show is at Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade along Avenue of Stars

    The areas are already packed with people when we get there. It is still quite a walk from the MRT to the viewing platform

    Take a good camera if you want a nice photo during the light show. It will be difficult to take a picture if you standing behind all those viewers. You must come early as you can, to have a good place in front

    40 buildings play a role on both sides of the harbor, Is an amazing show to watch. The lights playing in different color and form. The results are so excellent.

    But, if you have a regular camera is difficult to take a nice photo. We've seen some of people they those professional camera

    Cityscapes city buildings

    by shavy Written Nov 1, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    While walking in the city is hard to see low buildings, seems, while strolling around you all surrounded by skyscrapers

    As I've seen too many cities, but never been in the city surrounded by skycrapers. Hong Kong is very famous for that

    The Center is one of the major skyscrapers of Hong Kong. It took almost a decade to acquire sufficient area to construct the building

    Each of old buildings were bought to the premises sufficient area has to disband the impressive building down

    The building has up to 73 floors and is very colorful, because at night the shades are constantly changing through a computerized program that is unique to Hong Kong

    Many buildings in Hong Kong tower meters above sea level. You can visit some of the skyscrapers where you have a nice view over the city

    Christmas in Hongkong

    by shavy Updated Oct 31, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Hongkong itself is elaborately decorated with Christmas decorations, all lights along the streets and neon Christmas scenes on the big buildings that evening flicker on and off. Christmas for the Chinese more than a religious meaning.

    All the shops are open until midnight on Christmas Eve and is very busy on the deposed traffic streets. Spend some time exploring and taking in the elaborate holiday decorations, you'll find them everywhere in the city

    Vibrant decors and various Christmas trees with colorful designs filled its corners that served as attractions in the country. Among them, this "Ferrero Rocher" Christmas tree was my favorite.

    Aside from having an almost indistinguishable similarity with the real chocolate especially in the morning, it is also unique and looks lovelier. Spending a Christmas holiday in Hongkong is a magical experience, and well worth the trip.
