Sai Kung is that fun side of Hong Kong that not many people know about if they don't spend enough time with it. As a country park with the most stunning scenes of sweeping mountains, steep cliffs, lush vegetation, pristine beaches and small waterfalls - you wouldn't be able to see it without doing some boat trips around Sai Kung.
There are so many fun things to do on Lamma Island, its a half hour ferry ride away from Central and lots of expat choose to make it home to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Its earned quite a reputation as a fun hippie island with beaches and hikes but its the fun bunch of people that you might mingle with that makes things exciting.
Yuen Po Street Bird Garden is quite a fun thing to do in Hong Kong because no where will you find such an concentrated bird market that is so welcoming to tourists. There is more to bird market that just thinking that its an aviary, the macaws, talking rare parrots and song birds will surely make you happy.
The Hong Kong Space Museum looks fun to start off with, its half of a globe on the outside and on the inside you'll find a 270 degree screen for you to watch different exhibitions, and the fun part is that you don't have to be a space lover or galaxy fanatic to enjoy yourself.
Theme parks like Ocean Park are bound to be a local recommended fun thing to do in Hong Kong, not just because it is home to pandas and because of its newly opened aquarium Aqua City but also because it is a huge amusement park with fun rides and games.
When its time to party it up, the best fun thing to do at night with your friends is to get your body moving at Lan Kwai Fong. Its where all the bars and clubs are in Hong Kong and most bars do ladies free entry on Thursday ladies night.
What do Shatin Racecourse, Che Kung Temple and Jade Market all have in common? Its all about the money and fortune and these attractions in Hong Kong are the best places to have some fun whilst trying to make some. In order to have maximse your chance with winning the 3T horse bets, you better make way to the Che Kung Temple and pray for some blessings.
The fun thing to do at Jade market is the bargaining at the night market. People bargain for their souvenirs and all sorts of small trinkets but if you are looking for a truly fun experience with buying souvenirs other than the usual memorabilia then you have to visit the GOD store. It is a Hong Kong local owned lifestyle shop that plays on traditional Hong Kong culture and some of the humour is directly exhibited in the shop.
