Hong Kong is blessed with popular attractions and sightseeing opportunities, and you will find endless things to see and do. China Highlights has listed for you the following top things to do in Hong Kong. Choose any of the listed programs and you won't be disappointed. 

For a selection of Hong Kong’s best things to do around Victoria Harbour that can be seen in one day, see our Budget Travel, Mid-Price Travel, and Luxury Travel suggestions.

Victoria Peak Tram

Take a ride up and get a panoramic view of Hong Kong from the top of the 554m/1818ft-high Victoria Peak. Its steepest point has an angle of 27 degrees which definitely can give you an unforgettable experience.

Aberdeen Harbour Sampan Ride

Aberdeen Bay retains the characteristic of a traditional fishing village in the 1800s. The village still inhabits hundreds of fishing men. Here, you can tour around the bay by a sampan, and taste the fresh and delicious seafood.

Happy Valley Race Course

It is one of the few in-city race tracks in the world. This is the best place to watch the horse racing and place a bet. The exciting screaming of the punters is as much of a spectacle as the races.

Lantau Island

The tranquil and green environment makes it a popular spot. See the Giant Buddha, the tallest outdoor bronze Buddha in the world, and visit Buddhist temples on the island.

Night Cruise

Hong Kong is fascinating everywhere at night. It would be absolutely a great experience for taking a night cruise at the Victoria Harbor, enjoying the breeze and the Symphony of Lights.

Dynamic Street Markets

Hong Kong's street markets, usually nestled among the towering skyscrapers, are full of fun and excitement. Shoppers will find unparalleled selection of bargains and hidden treasures in each market.

Try Dim Sum

A trip in Hong Kong will not be complete without trying Dim Sum. Morning or lunch time Dim Sum is a local tradition. The wide range of snacks are delightfully served in bamboo baskets and accompanied by tea.

Day Trip to Macau

In Macau you can have a leisurely stroll among the many historical properties, feel the mixing culture of Chinese and Portuguese, and try your luck in gambling. The frequent ferries take only about one hour to go from Hong Kong to Macau.

Hi. We will be arriving at Macau Airport on January 18 at 9.30pm. What mode of transport are we going to take from the airport to the ferry terminal bound for hongkong? How much would the fare be? Thank you.
Dear Ching, Thank you for your inquiry. The Macau Maritime Ferry Terminal is just beside the Macau airport so you can walk to the ferry terminal from the airport. The last boat to Hong Kong departs at 23:59, and the price is HK$184/USD24/CNY144 per adult.

Hi Mr Desai, from HKIA to your hotel, taking a taxi would be the most convenient way. From your hotel to Macau, the best way to take ferry is China Ferry Terminal (中国客运码头).
Service time: 07:00–22:30 (daily)
It is located in Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon (九龙尖沙咀).
