Hong Kong offers more than just outstanding luxury and breathtaking scenery; there is no shortage of things to do during your visit.
We have picked a selection of our favorites, including, but not limited to, the traditional atmosphere of local street markets, the best viewpoints and activities and adventures to both relax and thrill.
The venerable Peak Tram, in operation since 1888, the is a truly authentic way to experience the full beauty of Hong Kong’s natural pinnacle and take in a uniquely spectacular perspective of the city.
Pulled by steel cables, the ascent is so steep that the high-rise buildings appear to stick out at an angle into the sky. Arriving 400 meters above the city and only 150 meters below the summit of Victoria Peak, The Peak and its 360-degree Sky Terrace view is the ultimate Hong Kong experience and an unmissable fixture in your schedule.
