    Hong Kong Things to Do

    Aberdeen in reality is very different from the fiction that some guidebooks indulge into. This place might have owned the original name of Hong Kong and have been privy to a fishing boat life but today it is as busy and cramped with signature apartment skyscrapers as any other part of the region. The legacy lives on though and locals are there to...

    Hong Kong Things to Do

    Advertised as one of the most commercial streets of Hong Kong, Nathan Road is… one of the most commercial streets of Hong Kong! So what?

  • Central District

    Hong Kong Things to Do

    One of the most remarkable achievements in Hong Kong is the intricate network of protected passages over the roads. It's easy to escape the danger (the noise and the smoke) of the traffic, and it is comfortable to circulate in the air-conditioning from building to building. However, that gives us the strange feeling of being somewhat... confined,...

  • Hong Kong Park (Admiralty)

    Hong Kong Things to Do

    Hong Kong Park is tucked away behind the Bank of China Tower, Pacific Place Shopping Centre and the High Court Building. Until you are actually inside the eight hectare park you dont realise how much there is to it and you certainly could spend longer than a few minutes strolling around if you decide to explore further away from the central...

  • Victoria Harbour

    Hong Kong Things to Do

    The bay is the gem of Hong Kong, and with total justice: no matter in which side you are, either at low or high level, the views of the bay are always gorgeous. Crossing the bay in a ferry is a mandatory experience, and no one misses the light show at night. We felt sorry, because we saw it under several weather conditions, but never under a...

    Hong Kong Things to Do

    Too discreet in the outside, this temple is an explosion of colours as soon as you enter the door. Small spaces to lots of details, compose a dense atmosphere, where people jostles, moving around for prayer or photo. Originally built in 1848 and dedicated to Man Cheong, the God of Literature and Kwan Yu (Mo), the god of war, this temple was use...

  • Markets

    Hong Kong Things to Do

    I hate markets! (As a matter of fact I hate shopping). However, I was not alone, and it forced me to walk twice to and across this market. Well, it was not so bad, and I ended buying a DVD colection and... and... carrying Fernanda's bags.

  • Star Ferry

    Hong Kong Things to Do

    May I make a confession? I don't understand why my guide book mentioned Star Ferry as a great attraction I understand that in an extremely well organized city, with hi-tech solutions in mass transport, the “old” ferries may be considered a piece of museum, kept in action for cultural reasons. I know that, this line, created in 1888 has a very rich...

  • Shopping

    Hong Kong Things to Do

    Here is some information about how to go to Shenzhen. I personally dont think it is worth it for shopping alone as I found the prices to be only slightly less but often more than in Hong Kong. Take the East Rail Line from Hung Hom to Lo Wu station (the last stop before the border). The trip will take around 35 minutes. After you get off the train,...

  • Doubledecker Tram

    Hong Kong Things to Do

    Doubledecker trams have been trundling along the tracks on Hong Kong Island since 1904. Riding the tram is a relaxing way to take in the sights and sounds and despite the trams being the slowest way to get to your destination, locals use them as much as tourists so they are often quite crowded. Its a pleasant way to travel on a hot day unless you...

  • Tiger Balm Gardens

    Hong Kong Things to Do

    I decided to visit Tiger Balm Garden because it was a famous site in Hong Kong when I visited the first time (however its popularity might have gone down as a tourist spot in recent years due to several other new spots- according to my good VT friend, SL Liew) It opened to the public in the 1950’s. Also, Tiger Balm itself is a famous product which...

  • Space Museum

    Hong Kong Things to Do

    I've never really been a fan of space museums but a particularly wet day in Hong Kong with the kids forced us to look for indoor attractions.

  • Doubledecker beauties

    The street cars of Hong Kong are the cutest form of transport ever. They are also a very useful sightseeing tool on par with “hop-on-hop-off” buses except here one can and is tempted to stay on without hopping off at all. They are real old beauties plying the busy central streets of the skyscraper area providing lofty look at things big and small,...

  • Cyber Port

    There is Hong Kong downtown, proud and “skyscrapy”, there is Kowloon, busy and” chinesy” but there are also corners that are new and undetected by the mass tourism. Cyber Port is a case in point. It is located halfway between Hong Kong city on the north side and Aberdeen on the south side of the island. It has a sleek new architecture to match its...

  • Travelator

    The so-called “travelator” is a cute and genuine “attraction”. It is part of the escalator family akin to the airport speed paths but on an angle so it can climb the steep hill behind the skyscraper cluster. Apparently, it connects a well-to-do area to the business core which makes perfect sense. Nevertheless one problem should be considered – it...

  • European New Year

    Hong Kong populace pours out into the streets to meet the European New year. They are so determined to reach the best spots that some start their “vigil” as early as 8 o’clock. The less uptight ones arrive much later within an hour before the big bang and this is when it becomes excitingly dangerous. There are streams of human bodies moving in...
