Hong Kong is a busy vibrant city with so much to do outside of the usual shopping nightlife stopovers.There is something for everyone from the city to the quiet outlying islands. from the theme parks to the history and from the waterside to the mountains.It is easy to get around on the ferries MTR buses and trams. There is so much to see and enjoy with the many festivals which are so colorful and timeless .No matter the weather from beaches to Museums and so many restaurants to suit all tastes. An city not to be missed.

  • Get an Octopus card good for over 60's big savings on public transport.Makes travel easier than looking for small coins. accepted on most transport and some shops
  • Try Disneyland it is smaller than the ones in USA so easier to get around not as busy.If you feel a full day is to much go for the 3p.m. parade and stay to see the fireworks.
  • Go to the outlying islands to enjoy more local life. Enjoy the festivals and local food
  • Do some research on places you like to visit . Check out trip adviser for locations Get a map from the Hotel with MRt stations marked

    Charming island where you can see Local life. Good ferry service, Lots of restaurants set along harbor. Lots of narrow streets where you can pick up a bargain in the local shops. Check with the tourist website for festivals. The bun festival is the most famous and has various days of entertainment .The island can be busy on these days but the atmosphere is electric.

    • Go the day before the actual date of the festival to get the atmosphere and watch rehearsals for dance and opera. Lots of incense burning
    • Try a "Bun" not to everyones taste but the locals love them.
    • Watch the fishing boats come in
    • Have lunch at one of the many restaurants set both sides of the ferry jetty. .The ones nearer the market are less crowded and used mostly by locals.

Easy to get to on a ferry to Mui Wo and a No. 2 bus to the terminus.Check times but usually about every 45 minutes. For a different view take the cable car down to Tung Chung, which is right near the MRT.

    Makes you feel happy whatever your age. Easy to get around. Some rides are also in English. Food outlets get busy at lunchtimes. Chinese food available as well as western. Not as busy or as big as parks in USA. Easy to get to on MTR. The Disneyland express shuttle from Sunny Hill MTR has Mickey Mouse windows which adds to the quirkiness of the journey The rides usually do not have long waiting times although there are fast passes. New areas are being built but do not affect visitors. There are two shows to see and both excellent. The lion King theater is in the round so every can see and enjoy the performances.There is an afternoon parade about 3p.m. as well as one in the evening and a firework display.Do look around for the character greeting spots to see your favorite.

It is the best way to see the harbor and an easy way to visit both sides of the city.They run every few minutes during peak times and it is easy to get tokens or use an octopus card.Used by the commuters as well as tourists. Great views of the skyline as well.Star ferries run a harbor cruises during the day and at night.

    Great day out with amazing rides Lots to see and do. The animal section is amazing and a good place to see Pandas up close.The most adventurous rides are on the top section reached by a cable car or railway.There are amazing views from the cable car There is something for everyone here with many food outlets.Some rides may be more popular so expect to wait but all really worth the wait.East to reach from Central bus station which takes you right to the car park. The New MRT when completed will be even easier

    The village is the home of the Ngong Ping cable car . Take the ride bothways or just oneway. A good way to see the scenery. It takes about 1 hour but very smooth and enjoyable.A few small specialty shops , restaurants and fast food outlets. in the village itself but the cable car is the main attraction.

    A very interesting place with probably more than a thousand Buddas. It is little known but is mentioned in some guide books The steps are quite steep and it can be a climb .The statues are all different and set out all the way up. A different place if you like something a little quirky. It is signposted from the bus station but the entrance is actually behind the shopping mall. You may have to ask directions.

    A lovely hidden bay set about 45 minutes from Shau Kei. Lovely clean beach with umbrellas and deckchairs to hire. Very picturesque. They are a few restaurants which vary in price to the position. Those nearest the beach more expensive, depending on a lunch, dinner or just a snack. There are plenty of shady places to sit and watch the waves. The sea seems to get deeper quickly. Take a local bus or a first bus from Shau Kei which drops you off at the beach. You have to go to the bus station to get the return one.There are a couple of walks one to the rocky outlet which would make a good place to take a picnic with great views.

    Once a typhoon shelter Aberdeen harbor is a busy fishing port with many high end apartments.Take a local sampan ride or a big bus one around the boats, It is fascinating to see how basic the living conditions are on the boats.Take the ferry across the bay and walk along the pathway to see another side of the harbor.It is a pleasant and quiet place to sit and watch the boats come and go.The feryy from Lamma goes into the harbor which is great to see the harbor from the sea. There are plenty of shops and a bus station to other parts of the island. A few other ferries go to the outlying islands but check times. The famous Floating restaurant has its home here as well as some smaller ones.
