Top 5 Attractions in Hong Kong

Hong Kong, also known as the Oriental Pearl, has the right blend of man-made wonders and natural beauty, making it the perfect place to visit in Asia. (For some quick travel info on Hong Kong, here’s our Quick Travel Guide on Hong Kong as well)

If you’re planning to visit Hong Kong in the coming days, make sure you visit these 5 attractions! (Editor – we know that there are a lot more sights and attractions in Hong Kong. We’ll be posting these as a follow-up in a series)

HK-5 Avenue of Stars and Tsim Sha Tsui

Visit the Hollywood of East at the Avenue of Stars. There are commemorative plaques, movie memorabilia, and celebrity handprints. Get your share of glitz and glamour here. Close to the Avenue of Stars, take a stroll along this famous Tsim Sha Tsui promenade and feel the presence of the Hong Kong culture. The walkway covers many museums, and gives a romantic moment during the evening with a spectacular skyline.

HK-4---Mong-Kok

Mong Kok is one of Hong Kong’s most congested shopping areas! It includes the popular Ladies Market as well as a host of other shopping streets where you can buy everything from clothes and electronics to goldfish and wedding dresses. (We don’t recommend you buy goldfish. The airline won’t be pleased. Neither would the fish.)

The MTR station is conveniently named: Mong Kok.

 Get ready to experience the Hong Kong nightlife with fortune tellers, opera singers, and traders with all kinds of different wares. There are watches, trinkets, electronics, seafood, and antiques that make the market extremely charming.

2-Disneyland

A trip with kids can never be complete without a visit to Disneyland. There are many magical attractions like the Toy Story Land, Grizzly Gulch, Flights of Fantasy Parade, and The Golden Mickeys. The Hong Kong Disneyland is smaller than other Disneylands (such as Florida or Anaheim) but if you have small kids who might otherwise get tired with a full day of walking and queuing, the size is perfect.

1-Ocean-Park

It’s a marine theme park with thrill rides, shows, and animal exhibits. If you sign up for Polar Adventure, you can visit the penguins, walruses, seals, snowy owls, and arctic foxes. You can also relive Old Hong Kong as well as see some rare animals at the Amazing Asian Animals exhibit such as Giant Pandas and Red Pandas (thus saving you a trip to the River Safari.)

 

If you’re going to visit one city in China, visit Hong Kong. If you’re going to visit many cities, still visit Hong Kong. It has a fresh and lively atmosphere, which is why it attracts many young travelers and honeymooners.

  • A city that never sleeps on the eastern side of the globe is what I describe Hong Kong. A place where east meets west for having multitude of races interacting and sharing a single society. Having stayed here for 2 weeks almost, uttering the word “satisfied” is an understatement. The comfort and convenience, gastronomic pleasures, and cultures and traditions say it all.
