Place to Visit Hong Kong
Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade
Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade has one of the finest views in the world. During the day, watch the boats streaming in and out of Victoria Harbour and at night, enjoy the spectacular light display on 44 buildings that form the heart of the skyline. There are numerous restaurants and bars around this area where you can enjoy local or international cuisine making it an enchanting place to enjoy at any time of day.
The area of Mongkok consists of shopping streets including a bird market, “sneaker street”, the ladies market, goldfish market, flower market, and many more. With all these markets centered in one bustling area, shoppers should be able to find just about anything they’re looking for.
Temple Street Night Market
Temple Street Night market opens at 4:00 pm and runs until late. This is the place to visit if you are looking for affordable items. People shop here for inexpensive clothes, watches, imitation labels, footwear, and cookware amongst other things. While shopping, you can also enjoy the dai pai dong (open-air street stall) food.
This crescent-shaped stretch of sand is one of the most beautiful beaches in Hong Kong. This wide, wave-lapped beach is popular with both locals and visitors and is great for strolls in the early morning, daytime sun-soaking, or lingering at sunset when all has turned mellow. There are also colonial-style buildings situated around the bay and twin statues of the deities Kwun Yam and Tin Hau dominate the picturesque gardens which lead down to the beach.
Tian Tan Buddha
Tian Tan Buddha is famed as Lantau island’s most iconic attraction. Sitting outdoors next to the Po Lin Monastery, this bronze seated Buddha is 34 meters tall and weighs over 250 tonnes earning it the name of Big Buddha. The area is just a 10-minute walk away from the open-air shopping village, Ngong Ping, which also has restaurants and cultural performances.
