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.
