Hong Kong Island Half-Day Tour

Hong Kong, Hong Kong

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

An excellent introduction to Hong Kong, although we took the tour on our last day due to the Peak tram being out of service before this date. Loved the stop at Aberdeen and the sampan ride, at least we got to see the floating restaurant and a hint of what it's like living on the water. Stanley area was very scenic and the markets were great, very different from Temple Street and the Ladies Market and had different items on offer. Less time could have been spent at the jewellery factory. Overall a well run and enjoyable tour.

My Review

This tour could have been the highlight of our Hong Kong holiday, but unfortunately the weather was against us and the cable car was out of service. The ferry ride and bus trip along the coastline was very interesting and showed a quieter and less populated side of Hong Kong life. However, when we reached the top of the mountain a thick fog had set in. We were taken to the base of the Buddha and could see it towering in the mist above us but when we went down to the Monastery for our lunch we could see nothing of it, I couldn't even tell in which direction I should be looking or where the massive staircase started. Lunch at the Monastery was tasty and plentiful and I think everyone at our table enjoyed it. Our tour guide Ben was very informative and all said and done it was a good day out.
