    Hong Kong Things to Do

    If I had to choose between Disneyland & Ocean Park...I'd go for Ocean Park! it's more value for the money and has something for everyone not just kids.

    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...

  • Central District

    Hong Kong Things to Do

    In a so dense forest of concrete, it's nice to find a place with a traditional look and small proportions. This square is not a big one, the statue is not impressive, but upon arriving we almost feel, at last, free to breath. A break in the massive soil occupation.

  • Hong Kong Park (Admiralty)

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    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...

  • Nathan Road

    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? One Indian tout in each square meter, large and small shops side by side, scams menacing all around, and Fernanda still angry because I only gave her time to enter 489 of the .... stores* * Sorry, I had no time...

  • Markets

    Hong Kong Things to Do

    One of the most interesting details in Temple Street Night Market is the long line of stalls with fortune tellers. I thought that they were just a couple of them, being surprised by their big number. Quietly standing side by side (without any remarkable demand), they are a good example of "Chinese patience". No hassle, no shout, just waiting by...

  • Victoria Harbour

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    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...

  • Repulse Bay

    Hong Kong Things to Do

    Repulse Bay was in my agenda - not to swim (the time was too short for that), but to have a look. Unfortunately, the weather didn't help us, and with all those stores calling for Fernanda I didn't even stop. The general look from the wet window was interesting, and, if I go back to Hong Kong under a sunny day, it will be included in the new...

    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...

  • 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...

    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...

    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. I must have walked past the egg shaped building a hundred times over the years with barely a curious glance but we bought our tickets, joined the queue, went in and enjoyed a couple of entertaining and...
