My trip to Hong Kong: Top things to do

This was my first time in Hong Kong and it is such an amazing city, I cannot wait to plan another trip back. We had about three and half days to explore and we crammed in as much as we could into those days. We took the high speed train from Shenzhen China to Hong Kong and stayed on the island side of Hong Kong.

I am sharing some of the fun and exciting thing I did on my trip to Hong Kong over three days:

Big Buddha and Po Lin Monastery

The Big Buddha is located on Lantau Island and it is hidden away in lush mountains. The easiest was to get up to the Big Buddha is to take the Ngong Ping Cable car. We took the crystal cabin which has a clear floor so we could see the scenery below. We were there on a rainy and windy day and being on top of the mountain during these conditions was not a pleasant experience. Underneath the Buddha statue is a museum so we took shelter from the rain there. The Big Buddha was built in 1993 and it is made of bronze.

 Tai O Fishing Village

Tai O Fishing Village is on the West coast of Lantau Island and we explored it in the same day as seeing the Big Buddha since it was only a 15 minute bus ride away.  The village has a traditional seafood market and stilt houses on the water. We took a small boat around the harbor and got a close up view of some of the stilt homes.  The market has live seafood tanks as well as a lot of dried seafood (not the best smelling place).

Hong Kong Disneyland

Being a big Disney lover I had to save one full day for Hong Kong Disneyland. It is much smaller than the Disney parks back home, but I found this easier to go on all the rides I wanted to in one day. Find my full Hong Kong Disneyland experience Here

Victoria Peak

Victoria Peak is on the best places to get an amazing view of the entire city of Hong Kong Island. We got to the top by taking the Peak Tram. Once the tram reached the top, it dropped us off at the Peak Galleria, which has restaurants, stores and an observation deck to get a breath taking view of the Hong Kong skyline.

Dim Sum

Hong Kong has many great restaurants to get dim sum, but cutest and most delicious place to get dim sum is at Yum Cha. They have animal shaped dumplings that are almost too cute to eat. They have multiple locations around Hong Kong.

A Symphony of Lights

Victoria Harbour is evening more dazzling at night with the Symphony of Lights that happens every single night at 8pm. The show combines music with lights, LED screens, lasers and fireworks that happen on Hong Kong Island. The best place to watch this show is on the mainland on Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade outside the Hong Kong Cultural Centre. We took the Star Ferry from Hong Kong Island to get to the mainland to view the light show.

Explore the street art

When we arrived in Hong Kong we were exhausted after the journey there and just spent the first day walking around without a plan. We walked past some beautiful street art and murals in the city. These unplanned moments are always my favorite part of a trip.

Street markets

Hong Kong is known for its shopping and has many street markets throughout the city selling a variety of things from clothing, jewelry, electrons, souvenirs, food and toys. It is also a great place to bargain and find great deal. Some of the most popular markets are the Cat Street Market, Ladies Market, Jade Market, Temple Street Market and Stanley Market.

Hong Kong Park

Hong Kong Park is a 20 acre public park located in Central Hong Kong. The park has many ponds and fountains throughout as well as an aviary in the middle. There are also a few colonial style buildings through out the park and small kiosks to get food.

Tea Time

I always enjoy having afternoon tea and it's something I like to try in cities that I travel to.
We were staying at the Grand Hyatt Hong Kong and they had a special afternoon tea during the holidays where their food was holiday themed!

Hello Kitty Cafe

Growing up I was a huge Hello Kitty Fan. I was sad to hear that the Hello Kitty Restaurant had closed but I found out that Hong Kong has a Hello Kitty cafe. The cafe is not very big, only has a total of four tables. Everything they make is Hello Kitty themed and super cute and delicious!
