An awesome place : Hong Kong and how to get in

What can you see in Hong Kong and methods to get out? Hong Kong is an amazing travel destination. Lan Kwai Fong – or LKF for short– is party central. Basically, it’s where you need to be on a Friday and Saturday night if you’re in search of fun. You’ll find over 90 restaurants and bars packed into the district – from upscale spots like Dragon-i (for the ‘global glitterati’) to pubs like Hong Kong Brewery that are a bit more rough-and-ready. Get ready to party hard with tourists, expats and locals alike in the city’s hedonism HQ.

You haven’t seen the best of Hong Kong until you’ve taken in the skyline from Victoria Peak, more commonly known as The Peak. Ride the tram to the top of this scenic viewpoint to see the skyscrapers, bustling city, harbor, and surrounding islands. The tram station is located near the entrance to Hong Kong Park by the Murray building. At the top of the tram are the Peak Tower and Peak Galleria, with shops, restaurants, and an observation deck. Most of The Peak is covered by a large park with lush greenery, nature trails, and more beautiful lookouts with views over the thriving metropolis below. A trail also leads down from The Peak to the city below, following a mix of trails through the forest and sections of road here and there. It can be a bit confusing finding your way. See our article on Hong Kong hiking trails for more details. Evening is a great time to visit The Peak, when you can see the spectacular skyline lit against the night sky. This is one of the best views in Hong Kong at night. If the tram line is long, or you want to go directly from your hotel, you can also take a taxi to the top.

Preserving the natural ecological environment and features of the Ngong Ping area and converging the custom and culture of Lantau Island. Ngong Ping 360 is sure to refresh your body and enlighten your mind, as soon as you step on the Cable Car. Ngong Ping Village is set on a 1.5-hectare site on Lantau Island, adjacent to Ngong Ping Cable Car Terminal and the Tian Tan Buddha Statue. Looking up to the southwest from Tei Tan square in the middle of the Po Lin Monastery plaza, you will see a flight of 268 steps leading to the world’s largest outdoor bronze statue – the Giant Buddha. While Ladies Market is by far the bigger and brasher of the two, Fa Yuen Street is also a brilliant introduction to consumerism, Hong Kong style. There is so much to see and buy here that the path that runs down the centre is no wider than one person at some points while the stock is stacked so high that vendors need to use poles to retrieve many items.

How to get in or out of Hong Kong? We recommend flying, here is a reason : The first and foremost advantage is time saving. Secondly flight journey provides comfort by cosy relaxation. Thirdly cabin çrews are supportive and providing various beverages and foods. Moreover we can ask blankets and back cushions to support the back to relax. On the other hand ,some may argue that there are certain problems in travelling by flight which includes expensive flight ticket, not able to sleep by lying like train journey. In my opinion advantages outweigh the disadvantages. Last time i arrived from Toronto to Hong Kong i saved a lot of time compared to a sea voyage.

Located on the 100th floor of the International Commerce Centre, the views from Sky100 are simply divine; you can see all of Hong Kong and Victoria Harbor laid out below you. The 360-degree observation deck has a cafe where you can grab a bite to eat or drink while taking in the views, as well as a virtual reality attraction and photo booth. The panoramas on offer are just as stunning at night, when the city’s myriad of lights twinkle below you, glittering off the water around them. This lovely, laidback seaside town is the perfect place to head from Hong Kong if you want to escape the city for a bit. Its serene settings will replenish you after all the sightseeing. Located on the Sai Kung Peninsula, the town of the same name has lots of restaurants and bars for visitors to choose from; many opt to take a boat trip aboard an old junk. With lots of activities on offer such as sailing, scuba diving and sunbathing – as well as partying in the evening – Sai Kung is an excellent choice for a day trip.
