As a new destination, Hong Kong offers a myriad of attractions for tourists to have unforgettable experiences. Here is just a selection of the top destinations, which you should not miss when visiting Hong Kong:
Typically referred to as Victoria Peak, this 552-meter-high mountain is the highest point on Hong Kong island. Visiting Victoria Peak requires the use of a unique mode of transportation, the Peak Tram, which takes tourists to the Peak area.
The Peak is the most popular place to truly appreciate the stunning views of Hong Kong. This location gives you panoramic views of the Kowloon Peninsula and Hong Kong island, which combines the excellence of skyscrapers, crystal clear waters, and the greenery of nature. Bringing a camera is a must when coming here. The views of Hong Kong here are too beautiful not to be immortalized.
For vacationers who bring along their family, Disneyland is the obvious choice. This theme park from Disney has been around since September 2005. Within the 27.5-hectare ground, tourists can enjoy hundreds of different Disney-related activities, which have been divided into 7 themed areas.
There is a variety of exciting entertainment choices, such as the Lion King Festival, the Disney Parade, and the Mickey Mouse Projection Show; all ready to enliven every visitor’s time at the park. It’s not all about physical fun—there is the gastronomical pleasure to partake in, too, with a plethora of delicious foods and drinks offered throughout the numerous small shops and restaurants at the park.
Tsim Sha Tsui, or also known as TST, is a must-see destination for those who genuinely want to discover the wealth of Hong Kong. This urban area, on the southern side of Kowloon, is a metropolitan tourist center aimed at those who wish to shop-till-they-drop or just enjoy the splendor of Hong Kong.
High buildings line the TST area and contain a shopping center, culinary delights, museums, and an art gallery to spoil tourists, indeed. When visiting this area, you must see the Bruce Lee statue on The Avenue of Stars, explore the night-life on Knutsford Terrace, and traverse the Harbor City Shopping Centre.
