Day 2 : A glance of Hong Kong in a full-day city tour
Start your morning right with a tram-ride to arguably the best city view in the world, Victoria Peak. Take in the views overlooking the Hong Kong Island, Victoria Harbor and Kowloon and walk around the peak to enjoy Hong Kong’s natural scenery before enjoying lunch with a panoramic view.
Once lunch is finished, take a 30-minute ride to Hong Kong’s jungle terrain in the New Territories. Upon arrival in Sha Tin, visit the Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery. Climb the 431 steps to the top and be greeted by a 9-storey red and gold pagoda containing 13,000 gold and black Buddhas.
Return to Hong Kong in the early afternoon to visit the Hong Kong Cultural Museum to see the evolution of Hong Kong from small fishing villages to the modern, economic powerhouse it is today. Once the visit is finished, hop on the Ding Ding Tram, grabbing a seat on the second level, and have a look around at the never-ending skyscrapers and pedestrians in Causeway Bay.
The rest of the evening is free for your leisure to explore Hong Kong’s Time Square and multitude of shopping centers, and of course, the Avenue of the Stars.
Grab a bite to eat and sip a cocktail in the ubiquitous nightlife areas of Lan Kwai Fong and Soho. The city is very safe and has an abundance of public and private transportation options to help you get back to your hotel safely.
