For such a compact island, Hong Kong carries plenty of punch as a commercial hub and holiday destination. The many shopping options, restaurants and bars around the Central district are complemented by such exciting experiences as taking the on a journey to the Peak for a bird’s eye view of the island - and beyond. Venture to Stanley Markets, watch the horseracing at famous Happy Valley, marvel over the temples at Aberdeen or dine on seafood at Repulse Bay.
A tourist hot spot, Kowloon and the neon lights of famous Nathan Road are a magnet for bargain hunting shoppers and diners, Tsim Sha Tsui popular both during the day and after dark. It is in Kowloon that you can visit the Hong Kong Museum of Art and the Hong Kong Space Museum before venturing to the Peninsula for its world renowned High Tea. Getting around Kowloon is swift on the MTR underground rail network.
Very much a weekend retreat for locals, the New Territories showcases a quieter side of Hong Kong, a leafy area that stretches north of Kowloon towards the mainland China border. Among its appealing spots is Tsuen Wan or Shallow Bay, easy to reach and popular for its museum and colourful temples. It is in the New Territories that Hong Kong’s tallest peak is found . . . Tai Mo Shan, 1t 957 metres almost twice the height of Victoria Peak on Hong Kong Island.
With more than 260 outlying islands sprinkled around the coast, Hong Kong Island has plenty of holidaying options, although only a few are inhabited. Lantau Island, which is twice the size of Hong Kong Island, is a must for hikers and lovers of the great outdoors. Charming and tiny Cheung Chau and Peng Chau still cling to their traditional fishing village lifestyles, while Lamma Island is famed for its seafood restaurants.
