3 day hip urban adventure for the young and energetic



Description:

Around 95% of Hong Kongers live in the city and its not hard to see why - Hong Kong is a big city. One of the most metropolitan and pearl of the orient with buckets of culture. The living culture of unrivalled shopping at causeway bay, Mong Kok and Tsim Sha Tsui just to name a few. Superb dining and a choice of unique blend of Eastern and Western, matched by the spectacular harbour postcade skyscrapers and the splendour of repulse bay and Stanley market. Transportation is ever so efficient and second to Tokyo's on its timeliness and in this tour you'll find that most sights are linked whether by bus, minibus, MTR or trams.

Day 1 - Hong Kong, Jordan


The first day is going to be one of the most intense and eye-opening days. Start off with an authentic Hong Kong style breakfast at Australia Dairy Co. and then proceed to Yau Ma Tei. If you are early enough you will see the elderly practicing Tai Chi. When shopping at Mong Kok take note that some shops do not open until 2-3pm so it may be worthwhile revisiting at night. When shopping down Nathan Road you can hop on any bus that heads towards Star Ferry and you will be able to window shop on the bus. Sit on the top deck of Star Ferry instead of the bottom for better views. When you get off at Hong Kong Island, before you sit down and order infamous BBQ goose at Yung Kee, stroll around Soho if Chinese lunch does not sound too appealing. After lunch, it will be time to visit the Peak and be sure to have your camera ready in hand. Views will be breathtaking when the Symphony of lights starts at 8pm on the dot. The symphony of lights can be better viewed at the Star Ferry port too. Start your night off at Lan Kwai Fong.

Day 2 - Hong Kong


Just when you thought that Hong Kong was completely urban and commercial, until you come across the beaches at Repulse Bay and at Stanley Market. The 3000 steps up to see the Big Buddha is tiresome but Lantau Island is an unspoiled natural beauty that you must see. Experience the difference of Lan Kwai Fong, Soho with Wanchai tonight instead, only if you are not exhausted by now.

Day 3 - Hong Kong


The last day to do fervent shopping in where else, but Causeway Bay. If you like Chinese antiques then Hollywood road is where you will find them. The last day to do some tourist shopping in Tsim Sha Tsui, Ocean Centre is a grand megaplex mall which stocks some of the world's high end luxuries. Have lunch/ dinner at Knutsford Terrace and have Spanish Tapas. Take pictures along Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade and Avenue of Stars for the beauty of the harbour.
