Must do's in Hong Kong
The Peak: literally the top-attraction. From atop the highest hill in Hong Kong (552 m high) you are treated to stunning views of the city skyline. Shopaholics can indulge themselves in their favourite activity in the giant mall.
Clock Tower: the red brick and granite tower is the only part which remains of what originally constituted a terminal and the most romantic witness of the steam era of yesteryear.
Temple Street Market: the busiest night market in Hong Kong: here you can find souvenirs, clothing, paintings and a variety of eateries.
Hong Kong: Insider tips
Do not leave Hong Kong without a harbour cruise and the captivating views of the city from the bay. The cheapest way to do this is from the deck of the Star Ferry which has linked Kowloon to Hong Kong for over 100 years.
Taste the true Hong Kong dim-sum with splendid views of the harbour...at Maxim's Palace, a budget-friendly restaurant housed in the refurbished town hall in Central.
Taking the kids on a citytrip to Hong Kong? Go to the quiet green lung of the city, Hong Kong Park and walk through the giant aviary spotting birds up close. Who dares to cross the suspension bridge? The kids can enjoy themselves in the yard while you catch your breath near one of the many lakes or ponds.
