Hong Kong is the city for lovers. In 1997, the British returned to China but on the condition that it could be independent for the next 50 years. So Hong Kong is part of China but has its own currency. Its inhabitants use their own passport and they have always spoken Cantonese (not Mandarin). Therefore, a place to visit in Hong Kong does not need a visa from China (many nationalities can be 1 month in the city without a visa).
There Are 6 Ideal Places To Visit In Hong Kong
Climb To Victoria Peak
On the Hong Kong island, there is a beautiful tram of more than 120 years that will take you to the top of the highest mountain in Hong Kong, at 522 meters. From above there is a walk around the very nice mountain with spectacular views of the city.
Go To The Beach
Around Hong Kong, there are several beaches that you will reach after a short bus ride. I remember that I went to Stanley Beach, a medium-sized beach, quiet and beautiful enough. Recommended if you feel like escaping a little from the city. You will arrive there by taking buses 6, 6X, 6A, 66 or 260 from Queensway in front of the Admiralty MTR station. If you want better beaches you will have to look for them in other islands of the New Territories area.
Place To Visit In Hong Kong – Visit The Hong Kong History Museum
In the Kowloon area you will find the Hong Kong History Museum, the best museum I have seen in Asia. It is the best way to understand what it has been and is Hong Kong.
Go Out Partying In The Lan Kwai Fong Area
The bar area of Hong Kong Island is called Lan Kwai Fong. It is where the people of the city and the foreigners residing in it come out, so there is quite international atmosphere. It is not cheap but you can always make some bottles. The minisupers are next to the bars.
Enjoy Cantonese Food And Night Markets
Hong Kong cuisine is famous around the world. If you come with money you can spend what you want in food since there are even several restaurants with Michelin stars. But you will also enjoy the food in the street, in the small stalls. It is delicious and very cheap. If you go to one of the best night markets in the city, on Temple Street, you will find several restaurants at a good price.
Place To Visit In Hong Kong – Watch The Symphony Of Lights Show On Avenue Of Stars
The Avenue of Stars is the version in Hong Kong Street of Fame Hollywood. On the street floor, you will see the hands of actors like Jackie Chan and Bruce Lee, among others. The street is in the part of Kowloon, in front of the sea and overlooking the skyscrapers of Hong Kong Island. Every night at 8 you can enjoy the Symphony of Lights.
