About This Collection

I have put this collection together to share some of my favourite things about Hong Kong.

I have lived in Hong Kong for 3 years now, and visited many times before moving here. Hong Kong is one of my favourite cities in the world, and is a great place to visit. It is a fun, vibrant city with so much going on, a sensational skyline and amazing food! I hope to share some of my best tips for visiting Hong Kong here.

If you would like to learn more about my travels, please check out my Family Travel Blog below, where I feature adventurous family adventures around Asia and beyond.

Riding the Star Ferry in Hong Kong

The iconic Star Ferry has been ploughing across Victoria harbour between Kowloon and Hong Kong Island for over a hundred years, and continues to carry tens of millions of passengers every year.

It is one of the best ways to take in the Hong Kong skyline, so be sure to enjoy the trip during both the day and night – and for just $2.50 HKD ($3.40 at weekends) per ride, you can afford to.

Hiking the Dragon's Back in Hong Kong
Hong Kong is renowned for its skyscrapers and urban sprawl, but around 38% of the land surrounding Hong Kong has been designated as country park, and within these country parks and hundreds of kilometres of well signposted hiking trails.

The Dragon’s Back is one of the best introductions to hiking in Hong Kong. This 2-hour hike is a relatively easy hike (children aged 5 and up should be able to manage it), offering spectacular views of Hong Kong’s southside and ends on Big Wave Bay beach, where you can rehydrate to the sound of the crashing waves.

Ocean Park Hong Kong

Is it an Aquarium? Is it a zoo? Is it a theme park? No, it’s Ocean Park!

This fun family amusement park has a Grand Aquarium, home to sharks, stringrays and turtles, a Polar exhibit with walruses, sea lions, seals and penguins, plus everyone’s favourite – the Pandas! When you've had enough of ogling the animals, there are plenty of adrenalin-inducing rollercoasters and thrill rides, while the cable car offers some of the best views of Hong Kong's Southside.

Visiting the Big Buddha in Hong Kong

The Tian Tan Buddha, aka the Big Buddha, is one of the largest seated Buddhas in the world at 34 metres high, and is made entirely of bronze. You have to climb 268 steps to reach the Buddha – but the feeling of being so close to this enormous Buddha once you get to the top is worth it.

Half the fun in visiting the Big Buddha is getting there – a 25-minute cable car journey aboard the Ngong Ping 360, offering spectacular views out over the South China Sea.

Hong Kong by Tram

The Hong Kong trams offer a great opportunity to take a voyeuristic journey through Hong Kong’s suburbs, and watch the layers of daily life unfold. It may not be the quickest or most efficient form of transport, but it is certainly the most atmospheric. And at just HK$2.30 per ride (around .30c USD), it is the best value sightseeing tour you are likely to find.

With only six tram routes, and the destination clearly displayed on the front of every tramcar, you can’t go too far wrong. Tram stops are spaced nearly every 250 metres, so you can hop-on and hop-off whenever you fancy.

One of the highlights of visiting Hong Kong with kids is taking them to Hong Kong Disneyland. With a whole host of Disney characters to meet, rides to enjoy, a Lion King show, the Fantasy Parade and fireworks, you are guaranteed a day of fun and much excitement from the kids.

However, Hong Kong Disneyland is one of Hong Kong’s most popular visitor attractions, and it can get very busy. We have put together our top tips for visiting Hong Kong Disneyland and how to avoid the crowds.

Eat Dim Sum at City Hall

You can’t visit Hong Kong without enjoying at least one dim sum blowout, and the most famous place to do this is Maxim’s Palace at City Hall. Set in an enormous banqueting hall, Maxim’s Palace is big, bright and brash and crammed to the rafters with noisy dim sum goers.

It is one of only a few restaurants left in Hong Kong where dim sum is still served the traditional way - from steaming carts, piled high with bamboo baskets. If you don’t know the names of the dim sum dishes, just point and smile and hope for the best!

Take a Harbour Cruise of Hong Kong

There are few cities that can rival Hong Kong's skyline at night. One of the best ways to appreciate it is to take a harbour cruise. There are two traditional junks that do this - the Aqua Luna and the Duk Ling. Definitely a 'must-do' if you're visiting Hong Kong.

Taking a junk cruise features in my article 10 Uniquely Hong Kong experiences. You can read the others below:

Visiting the Peak in Hong Kong

The Peak is Hong Kong’s most popular attraction – with visitors flocking here to enjoy the best views over the city from its viewing platform at 428m above sea level. There are also visitor attractions, nature walks and plenty of dining options at the top.

The most fun way to reach the Peak is to take the Peak Tram, but you want to go early to avoid the queues.

I have included riding the Peak Tram in my roundup of 10 Uniquely Hong Kong experiences.
