Things to do in  Hong Kong SAR

Welcome to Hong Kong SAR

Home to a show-stopping skyline and world-class shopping opportunities, the Chinese island of Hong Kong is modern, eclectic, and fast paced. At night, take a Hong Kong harbor cruise or ascend Victoria Peak to watch the Symphony of Lights laser show. By day, Stanley Market bustles with trade, ""Ding Ding"" trams ferry locals and visitors about the city, and the floating village of Aberdeen bobs in the bay. No trip to Hong Kong is complete without a day trip to Big Buddha on Lantau Island, a Star Ferry ride, or a taste of the city’s culinary scene, which comprises Michelin-starred restaurants, late-night dim sum spots, and street food.

Top 10 attractions in Hong Kong SAR

Big Buddha (Tian Tan Buddha)

Big Buddha (Tian Tan Buddha)

star-51,137
Lantau Island’s Big Buddha (Tian Tan Buddha) is a huge bronze seated Buddha at 112 feet (34 meters) tall. The statue is a popular pilgrimage site for travelers from Asia and around the globe who climb the 268 steps leading to its base for panoramic views of the South China Sea.More

Victoria Harbour

Victoria Harbour

star-5902
Dividing Hong Kong Island from Kowloon, Victoria Harbour has long been the lifeblood of the city. It is from these waters—often teeming with a motley mix of traditional and modern vessels—that the city’s twin skylines are best viewed. The harbor is historically responsible for the city that surrounds it as well; its deep and sheltered waters situated strategically on the South China Sea have directly contributed to Hong Kong’s rise as a major world trading center.More

Lantau Island

Lantau Island

star-51,364
The largest of Hong Kong’s outlying islands, Lantau is twice the size of Hong Kong Island, yet it has only a fraction of the population. Where Hong Kong is an urban jungle of sorts, Lantau is a mostly quiet escape famous for its long beaches, traditional fishing villages, Buddhist monuments, outlet shopping, and mountainous interior popular with hikers. The northern tip of the island is home to both Hong Kong International Airport and Hong Kong Disneyland.More

Ngong Ping 360

Ngong Ping 360

star-5222
The Ngong Ping 360 connects Tung Chung to Ngong Ping plateau, home to the iconic Big Buddha, Po Lin Monastery, and Ngong Ping Village. Opened in 2006, the cable car provides easy access to the hillside attractions, and its views of Lantau Island and beyond have made the gondola journey itself a tourist attraction in its own right.More
#5
Tai O

Tai O

star-5185
The fishing village of Tai O, located on the western coast of Lantau Island, is known for its traditional culture and seafaring way of life.

#10
Aberdeen Harbour

Aberdeen Harbour

star-52,042
The quaint Aberdeen fishing village is famous for its picturesque harbor, where local Tanka boat people live on houseboats, junks, and sampans lashed together in messy rows and bobbing in the water in the shadow of modern skyscrapers. Situated between Hong Kong Island and smaller Ap Lei Chau, Aberdeen Harbour is home to one of Hong Kong’s most famous seafood restaurants (and one of the largest floating restaurants in the world), Jumbo Kingdom.More
