Travel Guide to Hong Kong

When in Hong Kong, don’t forget to…

Scale The Peak. Travel via tram 396m above sea level to the tower on Victoria Peak. The Sky Terrace, a viewing platform at 428m high, is spectacular for taking in city vistas, but the steep ride up is half the fun.

Shop till you drop – especially if you’re a lady. Tung Choi Street’s Ladies Market offers a whole kilometre of clothes, cosmetics and accessories.

Eat, eat, eat! Savour Hong Kong’s glorious array of food – from street eats to Michelin-star menus. Begin with Hau Fook Street’s traditional dai pai dongs (food stalls) selling Cantonese specialities such as diced pork with cashew nuts.

Set your watch to the Clock Tower. Dating back to 1915, the 44m-tall tower was built for the long gone Kowloon-Canton Railway terminus. It’s now a poignant reminder of all the Chinese immigrants who passed it on their way to new lives in Hong Kong and the rest of the world.

Watch the Symphony of Lights by the harbour. At 8pm every night you’ll see a show of lights dancing from skyscraper to skyscraper in time to a soundtrack.

Hit the clubs. Hong-Kong’s luxurious night scene is world-renowned.  Champagne Saturday, a party at glitzy club Magnum every Saturday where the bubbly flows freely, is a pretty flash place to start.
