3 Days in Hong Kong: Suggested Itineraries

By Viator, June 2015

4.5 1350 Reviews | Add your review

Reminiscent of urban landscapes from cyberpunk novels, Hong Kong is eclectic, fast paced and modern, with enough towering skyscrapers, electric streetscapes, commercial fervor and cultural idiosyncrasies to utterly swamp the senses of a visitor. There are also places to find peace and quiet in a city park, temple, or monastery.

Day 1: Victoria Peak & Admiralty

Explore the Botanical Gardens and ride the tram to the top of Victoria Peak for panoramic views, lunching at the Peak Lookout. Stroll through Hong Kong Park and visit the Flagstaff House Museum of Teaware before shopping at Pacific Place in Admiralty.

Travel along the Western shoreline to the spectacular Tsing Ma Bridge, or cruise aboard a traditional Chinese sightseeing junk to enjoy Symphony of Lights and glamorous night vistas of Victoria Harbour.

Day 2: Tsim Sha Tsui & Kowloon

Take the Star Ferry to Tsim Sha Tsui, visit the Hong Kong Museum of Art and Museum of History, and head over to the Kowloon Hotel for yum cha. Go shopping along Nathan Road, find bargains, flowers, goldfish, birds and jade at the numerous street markets, take afternoon tea at the Peninsula or enjoy dim sum and Cantonese opera at the vibrant Temple Street Night Market.

Day 3: Central, Wan Chai & Beyond

Wander along Hollywood Road to the Man Mo Temple in Central and continue up to historic Sheung Wan, past traditional shops and art galleries in Soho. Place a bet at the Happy Valley Race Track, see a show at the Hong Kong Arts Center, and go drinking in a hedonistic Wan Chai or stylish Lan Kwai Fong bar.
Take a day trip away from the bustling streets, neon lights and the skyscrapers to the rural beauty of 'The Land Between', explore pristine beaches, traditional fishing villages, lush valleys and soaring mountains on Lantau Island, with a guided visit to Po Lin Monastery and the Giant Buddha. Or sail across the sea on a day trip to Macau to see this fascinating former Portuguese colony and World Heritage site.
