Top 7 Impressive Hong Kong Travel Destinations

Hong Kong provides an endless source of experiences. Some of its most intriguing destinations can fly under the radar of travellers, leaving room for your own sense of discovery and adventure!

Take the Peak Tram for an iconic Hong Kong experience and marvel at its amazing skyline, or hike Dragon’s Back and take in breathtaking views over beaches, bays and rolling hills. Manila to Hong Kong flights are available through Cathay Pacific. 

Ocean Park

Situated in the southern district, its two main areas include The Waterfront and The Summit.

The Waterfront area, nearer to the entrance, features many popular attractions like Amazing Asian Animals, Ocean Express and Aqua City. Meanwhile, The Summit area connects via cable cars from Waterfront area with notable sights like Chinese Sturgeon Aquarium and Thrill Mountain.

Avoid long lines by purchasing Ocean Park tickets online. They’re also available at local 7-Eleven stores and travel agencies; concierges at many high-end hotels may pre-order them and add them directly onto your bill. If visiting during summer months, ensure everyone in your group has sunscreen protection as well as bringing an umbrella. Also bring snacks and water bottles specifically for children!

Disneyland

Spread across seven separate lands, its shows and rides will take you around the world as it brings back fond childhood memories.

If traveling with children, consider staying at one of Disneyland Resort Hong Kong Hotel’s luxurious hotel resorts like Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel for easy access and extra perks exclusive only to guests. In addition, rooms provide ample room for all your belongings! Plus, staying in Disneyland resort allows guests to skip ticket lines – and purchase two-day passes that grant priority access and early entry to its latest offering, World of Frozen land!

The Peak Tram

For visitors seeking an urban escape and admiring Hong Kong’s contrasted landscape of rolling mountains meeting metropolitan architecture, these tram rides are an essential experience.

Views of Hong Kong at night are breathtaking and being here during the Symphony of Lights show is only enhanced. To avoid long lines during peak season, purchasing tickets directly through Klook or The Peak Tram may be best to skip them altogether. Tickets purchased directly can also be combined with Sky Terrace 428 and Madame Tussauds tickets directly. Unfortunately Klook does not support bundling tickets with these attractions at this time.

Tsim Sha Tsui

Tsim Sha Tsui is an elegant area of high-rise hotels and malls featuring numerous attractions and entertainment opportunities. A shoppers’ haven, it offers brand-name stores alongside market stalls for easy shopping sprees; and features various museums to add cultural enrichment.

This district boasts an intricate history and boasts an eclectic blend of cultures. First documented during Ming Dynasty documents as a collection of small villages and seafront piers, it has evolved into what is now a world bazaar on the waterfront, filled with shops, restaurants and attractions.

Arriving in Tsim Sha Tsui is simple with the Metro, an economical and budget-friendly transportation option for visitors on a tight budget. Most areas within walking distance from Tsim Sha Tsui station – which connects directly with Harbour City and many shopping centers. Or alternatively take bus or taxi as scenic alternatives. There are even several ferry routes from Central and Wan Chai offering spectacular views over Victoria Harbour!

Nan Lian Garden

Hong Kong’s skyscrapers may provide a serene respite, and this peaceful garden in Kowloon’s Diamond Hill provides the ideal place to escape and unwind. Conceived in 2006 and designed after Tang Dynasty architecture, its winding pathways are lined with Chinese-style landscaping including ponds, lotus flowers, cypress trees and fragrant pines – as well as galleries featuring Tang-dynasty art as well as a tea house featuring vegetarian cuisine!

Attractions here include a golden pavillion and red Zi Wu bridge; however, you should allow for several hours to explore all areas of this park. Each pond and rock displays an appreciation for nature.

Hong Kong’s tranquil gardens, like Diamond Hill Park, can easily be seen to have earned themselves the reputation for serenity they possess. Open daily to the public and featuring lush surroundings full of beauty and harmony amidst hectic city streets – Diamond Hill MTR station makes visiting this park easily accessible, providing visitors with a chance to take it all in and soak up some culture.

Lyric Theatre Complex

Hong Kong’s arts scene is vibrant. Visitors can take advantage of world-class museums, galleries, theatres and two kilometre harbourfront promenade along Victoria Harbor – not to mention an abundance of green open space – along with M+, designed by Herzog & de Meuron’s concrete-clad museum of visual culture in West Kowloon Cultural District featuring cocktail bars next to 1950s cha chaan teng diners while bamboo scaffolding scales the glossy high rises – for an unforgettable cultural experience.

UNStudio recently unveiled Lyric Theatre Complex, a 41,000 m2 dance and theatrical arts theater commissioned by UNStudio that will bring performing arts to a broader public audience. This project includes three theaters (Lyric, Medium, Studio) as well as a Resident Company Centre that offers rehearsal facilities.

Location was one of the complex’s primary challenges; situated within a 40-hectare waterfront cultural district where public spaces co-mingle with venues of varying types, its design required unique solutions. Acoustic considerations necessitated positioning the smallest theater below ground level while simultaneously accommodating its alignment with an underground loading bay of the building.

The Mandarin Oriental

As one of the oldest hotels in Mandarin Oriental’s portfolio, this Hong Kong icon has long been revered. Although its glossy black marble facade may give off an air of old-school glamour, modern amenities have been added through an extensive renovation which includes new Club member lounge and an impressive Krug room housing one of Asia’s largest collections of this expensive champagne.

Rooms at Victoria Harbour Hotel are sumptuous retreats offering ample space for lounging and working. Bathrooms are particularly large, some featuring standalone bathtubs that overlook Victoria Harbour. Balcony-equipped rooms are highly regarded for their superb views.

Lan Kwai Fong, Hong Kong’s popular party district with numerous bars and clubs, can be reached within walking distance from this hotel. Furthermore, some of Hong Kong’s premier dining experiences can also be reached easily within walking distance from this hotel. Travel from Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) is made simple via The Airport Express; with one trip costing only approximately HK$110 one way!
