Central District Tours

24 Reviews
Central District
Central District, as the names suggests, is the main business and commercial district of Hong Kong Island. One of the earliest areas to be developed, today Central is a heady mix of new and old, packed with skyscrapers next to historical landmarks, swanky malls near traditional shops, and a constantly evolving retail, dining, and nightlife scene.
 
The Basics
Central features some of Hong Kong’s top attractions. Don’t miss riding the Peak Tram up to Victoria Peak for some of the best views in town. Shoppers will find many opportunities to indulge in retail therapy, from the boutiques of Hollywood Road to numerous designer shops in high-end malls. Those looking to eat, drink, and be merry can find plenty to sate their appetites in trendy SoHo or Lan Kwai Fong, ever popular with expatriates and visitors.

City tours, whether aboard a historical tram or a hop-on hop-off bus, make a number of stops in the district. Walking tours can feature both well-known highlights and hidden gems off the beaten path and are a great way to get a more in-depth perspective. Foodies will delight in the multiple food-tour options. 
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • Central is a must-visit for first-time visitors to Hong Kong.
  • Wear comfortable shoes and prepare to walk. Some of the terrain in Central is hilly and steep.
  • It’s a good idea to carry an umbrella, as weather can be unpredictable.
 
How to Get There
Central is a major transport hub, where the MTR, buses, trams, and ferries all stop and connect to different parts of the city. The Airport Express links the airport to Central in less than 30 minutes, and taxis are easy and plentiful. Taking the Star Ferry across Victoria Harbour between Kowloon and Central is an iconic experience for visitors.
 
When to Get There
The best times to visit Central are between February and May and between October and December, when the temperatures are at their most pleasant. Summer tends to be hot and humid, and winter, while not extremely cold, is damp and can be uncomfortable.
 
Walkways and Escalators
Walking is a great way to experience Central. Given the hilly terrain and often-wet weather, visitors should take advantage of the Central–Mid-Level Escalator and the numerous elevated walkways connecting key buildings in the district. The Central–Mid-Level Escalator is the world’s longest covered escalator and a great option when going uphill in Central. Using the elevated walkways (and going through buildings), it is possible to go all the way from Statue Square to the Macau Ferry Terminal without having to be exposed to the elements.
