Why visit Hong Kong and ways to move out? Hong Kong is an incredible travel destination. A less-than-five-minute journey from shore to shore, the Star Ferry is the swiftest and cheapest way to travel between Tsim Sha Tsui and Central or Wan Chai. Despite its short length, the journey still feels leisurely, helped in no small part by the cooling breeze. And you’ll also get some truly spectacular views of Hong Kong’s skyline – essentially front-row seats to Victoria Harbour. Cameras at the ready people – city vistas don’t get much better than this.
Located in Central Hong Kong, this beautiful park is a true oasis in the jungle of high-rises and one of the most peaceful places to visit in the city. Stretching out along a hillside, this huge, lush park contains a small forest of mature trees, water features, and a number of important attractions. One of the main highlights is the aviary. This large, outdoor area covered in netting is home to more than 80 species of birds, and wandering through this space, you would hardly believe you are not in a forest. High walkways take you up to canopy level, where you can see birds nesting and resting in the trees. Also in the park is a green house, the Hong Kong Visual Art Center, the Flagstaff House Museum of Tea Ware, and plenty of space to simply relax and soak up nature. MTR Admiralty Station, Exit C1.
Preserving the natural ecological environment and features of the Ngong Ping area and converging the custom and culture of Lantau Island. Ngong Ping 360 is sure to refresh your body and enlighten your mind, as soon as you step on the Cable Car. Ngong Ping Village is set on a 1.5-hectare site on Lantau Island, adjacent to Ngong Ping Cable Car Terminal and the Tian Tan Buddha Statue. Looking up to the southwest from Tei Tan square in the middle of the Po Lin Monastery plaza, you will see a flight of 268 steps leading to the world’s largest outdoor bronze statue – the Giant Buddha. While Ladies Market is by far the bigger and brasher of the two, Fa Yuen Street is also a brilliant introduction to consumerism, Hong Kong style. There is so much to see and buy here that the path that runs down the centre is no wider than one person at some points while the stock is stacked so high that vendors need to use poles to retrieve many items.
How to get in or out of Hong Kong? Last time i used Cathay Pacific. We recommend flying, here is a reason : Comfort! Although many airline seats are cramped and crowded, airlines are often more comfortable than some of the alternatives. They offer a controlled climate at a comfortable temperature and reclining seats, both of which are absent from many buses. Airplanes also generally give passengers the chance to stretch their legs during the trip and often provide free beverages. First-class and business-class accommodations include large, premium seating, high-quality complimentary meals and other amenities.
Happy Valley Racecourse is loads of fun to visit and is definitely worth checking out when in Hong Kong; there is an infectious party atmosphere about the place. While many people come to gamble, just as many come to take in the ambiance; themed nights such as Oktoberfest and Carnival only add to the sense of fun as people dress up for the occasion. First opened in 1846, Wednesday night is the main night on which to visit. A good mix of locals and tourists make up the lively crowd. Put a bet down and who knows, maybe you’ll come away with some winnings in addition to memories of a fun night out.
