Top 10 Tourist Locations in Hong Kong

Victoria Harbour

The Victoria Harbour boasts of one of the most beautiful skyline in the world. A cool fact about the harbor is that because of some reasons, either land reclamation or demolition or reconstruction, the cityscape keeps changing.

Victoria Peak

A photographer's delight, Victoria Peak can provide the best views of the city, if you're lucky enough. There are two major obstacles to your enjoyment: the crowd during weekends or in the peak season, and the smog that can block your view.
It's a rare chance for tourists to get an unobstructed view from the peak on a cloudless and clear day. Many tourists vouch for the funicular tram ride to top of the peak for and consider it to be the best 7 minutes of their trip to Hong Kong.

Avenue of Stars

If you believe Hong Kong to be 'the Hollywood of the Orient', then you cannot miss out on this. The place has everything, a movie buff can appreciate - a walk of fame dedicated to all the top Japanese movie artists, including a huge bronze statue of Bruce Lee.

Wong Tai Sin Temple

The Wong Tai Sin Temple is dedicated to Wong Chuping, one of the greatest Taoist fabled to achieve enlightenment. The temple holds the aura of the most accurate fortune telling you will ever find. The Wong Tai Sin Temple is a real visual treat and a must-visit.

Ocean Park

If you're visiting Hong Kong with family, then you cannot miss out on this little spot of merriment at the Ocean park..
The Shark Aquarium and the Ocean Theater are a real treat for the young and old. If, in any case, you missed the timing of one show and need to wait for the other, you can just take a ride on the Abyss Turbo drop, a 185-feet vertical ride that gives you the view of the entire park.

Golden Bauhinia Square

A piece of Japanese history reveals itself when you visit the Golden Bauhinia Square. Try to catch the flag raising ceremony on the second Sunday of each month. The view of the place at night is one of the most memorable ones the city can share.

Repulse Bay

You'd be surprised at the number of beaches in Hong Kong.
The best one out here is the Repulse Bay, a beautiful crescent-shaped beach that stretches on for miles, with clean and clear water that you will enjoy swimming in. The best time to have fun in the sand is during summers, the downside being quite a bit of crowding and the pollution levels.

The Hong Kong Wetland Park

If you're someone who has spend a really long time in the city, surrounded by concrete, steel and glass, staggering past the hustle and bustle of the city traffic, then a walk down the Hong Kong Wetland Park is the perfect getaway for you.
The place is also known for its great bird-watching along with the lush green, soothing power of nature. The park stays open from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm with special arrangements during bad weather.

Madame Tussauds Wax Musuem

The Madame Tussauds Wax Museum is great for anyone who likes wax statue exhibits and clicking selfies standing next to life-like wax models of Hong Kong superstars, along with other global personalities, including Mahatma Gandhi, Marilyn Monroe and Sir Alfred Hitchcock.

Po Lin Monastery

A tram or cable car ride and a little hike gets you to the Po Lin Monastery, where sits the Tian Tan Buddha.
The place is magical, in all its splendor and magnificence. And just wait till you get to 'the Largest sitting Buddha' statue made of bronze! A word of advice - avoid the weekends, the place will get too crowded to enjoy.

Shopping in Hong Kong

Tsim Sha Tsui

Commonly known as TST, this is the biggest shopping area in all of Hong Kong. It stretches for 2 and a half miles and has possibly everything inside, at rates cheaper than anywhere else.

Mongkok

A bustling place, regardless of the hour in the day. You'll find it crowded at all times, mostly due to it being a great place for many activities. It's also a great place for buying electronics.

Ladies' Market

Yeah you heard me, there's a place in Hong Kong dedicated solely to all the things a woman wants, at a price way cheaper than any branded goods.
