Don’t miss out on Hong Kong’s wealth of attractions, adventures and experiences
Known as the Big Buddha, sitting above Ngong Ping on Lantau Island, the Tian Tan Buddha and Po Lin Monastery symbolize the harmonious relationship between people, nature and religion.
Marvel at the mountain scenery from the luxury of the Ngong Ping 360 Crystal Cabin, then take a tour of the plateau to appreciate the compelling presence of the Buddha and the ornate detail of the Po Lin Monastery. Finish your tour with a stroll around the Wisdom Path, lined with wooden pillars that display the revered ‘Heart Sutra’ prayer.
Towering over the city, Victoria Peak offers unparalleled and breathtaking panoramas across the fusion of greenery, water and the vertical city that is Hong Kong.
Most dramatically accessed by the Peak Tram, The Peak is a natural attraction that cannot be missed and an experience that will not be forgotten. Plan your visit carefully: go at dusk to see the sunset behind the soaring skyscrapers and the city lights slowly bloom far beneath you. The Peak Lookout’s terrace is the place to enjoy a drink before taking the tram back down to earth.
Based on the lunar calendar, celebrations of traditional Chinese holidays are colorful and vibrant affairs to wow locals and visitors alike.
The longest and largest is the Chinese New Year, lasting until the Lantern Festival some 14 days later, but all Chinese festivals tempt thousands of people out onto the streets and squares of Hong Kong to celebrate. The atmosphere at festival time is a unique and exhilarating way to experience the culture of modern and traditional Hong Kong.
Happy Valley has been the home of horse racing in Hong Kong since 1846 and the buzz of Wednesday night racing at the ultra-sophisticated track is a thrill and experience for locals and visitors alike.
Champagne flows in the private boxes, which are perfect viewpoints for elite guests to enjoy the entertainment and exemplary hospitality.
