    Hong Kong Things to Do

    I'm not absolutely certain but I would assume that Victoria Peak and the iconic Peak Tram ride are the number one tourist attraction in Hong Kong. I have visited the Peak a number of times, both day and night and during different weather conditions. Based on my observations I would suggest the following to ensure you enjoy the Peak at its...

    Hong Kong Things to Do

    Described as the longest escalator in the world, with its 800 meters of total length, this may be useful for locals, but not much for tourists: if you go up to the top, as they are one way only, and mid-levels a residential area, you will end facing the problem of how to get out of there. We used it only for a couple of sections and left, allowing...

    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 collection and... and... carrying Fernanda's bags.

    Hong Kong Things to Do

    In the heart of Tsim Sha Tsui district of Kowloon, west of Nathan Road, this park is a deserved green island to escape the hustle-and-bustle and the overwhelming pace of its surroundings where walking isn't much relaxing - at least for me. Lots of people at ease and Tai Chi performers especially on Sundays. Kids enjoy the Avenue of Comics Stars...

    The fastly growing city means the replacement of the old, colonial buildings by the new skyscrapers and modern buildings.
