1. The Victoria Peak

 

Take the Peak Tram to go up to the Victoria Peak - the number one tourist destination here. The Victoria Peak provides a stunning bird-eye view of the world-famous Victoria Harbour, Hong Kong skyline as well as Kowloon.

The Peak Tram costs HK$25 for one way and HK$36 for a return trip.

3. Star Ferry

 

Ride the Star Ferry from Central to Tsimshatsui after 7pm. This is the best time in a day to have a close encounter with the Victoria Harbour as well as going to the best location to take a good look at the Hong Kong night view which is certainly one of the most beautiful city night views in the world.

5. Open-top Bus

 

Go on an open-top bus tour. You might be familiar with the hop on, hop off open-top buses in London. This new sightseeing vehicle has become more and more popular in Hong Kong. Operates daily from 10am to 6pm, there are three routes to choose from ?Red Tour (Hong Kong island), Blue Tour (Kowloon) and Night Tour.

7. Lan Kwai Fong / Wanchai

 

Lan Kwai Fong is a must-go place for you in Hong Kong ?if you enjoy night life. If you are here around July, youl be able to participate in the Lan Kwai Fong Beerfest - one of the annual biggest ever street parties in Hong Kong featuring food and beer from around the globe, live music and dance shows and more.

 

Wanchai at around Lockhard Road and Jaffe Road is another district for bar hoppers. You can even find girly bars here.

 

8. Horse Racing

 

Go for a horse racing if you come between September and June. Racing course is the only place where you are licensed to yell as loud as you can without receiving any complaints. Enjoy the fun and excitement here.

 

Races are usually held on Wednesday nights, Saturday or Sunday afternoon, in either Shatin or Happy Valley racecourse. Visitors with valid passport can enter the Members Stand at a fee of HK$100. You need to be at least 18 years old. Minimum bet is only HK$10. Beginner guides are available at the entrance. Test your luck.

 

9. Tailor Made Shirts

Ranging from backstreet to fine boutiques in five-star hotels, you can find high quality bespoke service tailors with value for money. Some tailor shops around Tsimshatusi area operated by locals or Indian can even produce your suits in 24 hours.

 

10. Seafood / Dim Sum

 

Go do a dim sum or seafood meal or both. As a visitor, make sure to get a sense of the local Hong Kong life style as to enjoy the gems of Cantonese cuisine here ?dim sum or live seafood. Dim sum restaurants are everywhere in town. Make sure to try the shrimp dumplings, pork dumplings and cha xiao bao (BBQ bun) which are the essence of Cantonese dim sum.

 

Picking your favourite live seafood from the tanks and have the chef cook for you immediately is another highlight of Cantonese cuisine in Hong Kong. You can find this experience elsewhere in the world.

 

There are several dedicated seafood areas. To combine a nice eating environment with easy access, I would suggest Lamma Island and Sai Kung.
