Weekend in Hong Kong: Attractions & Activities You Can't Miss

by thesquare re Travelling Community

Hong Kong was recently voted the most visited city in the world. It continues to attract tourists from around the world. With beautiful naturally forming landscapes and equally stunning man-made skyscrapers, Hong Kong blends the best of both worlds. If you are planning to visit Hong Kong, why not book your self-catering apartment in Hong Kong before setting out to explore your surroundings. The following attractions prove just why this city continues to bring over tourists in droves.

The Peak

 

This is the highest point in Hong Kong and is one of the best neighbourhoods to live in Hong Kong. Head to the peak tower and up to the viewing platform called Sky Terrace 428. There is also a lot more to do other than gaze at the scenery. You can dine at the nearby dining areas and the peak galleria offers another observation desk that is free to enter. For those looking to stretch their legs, the peak circle walk is a 3.5 kilometers trail across the peak, which offers stunning views. The peak is also accessible via the peak tram which also offers beautiful views of Hong Kong’s skyscrapers as you ascend to the Peak.

The Clock Tower


Built in 1915, the Clock Tower was originally built as part of the Kowloon-Canton railway terminus and today the tower stands as a declared monument, standing as a reminder of the Age of Steam. It also represents an important landmark for millions of Chinese immigrants who passed through the terminus before beginning their new lives in Hong Kong and other parts of the world. 

Temple Street Night Market


The area is a bazaar which is full of sellers offering beautiful items and local souvenirs, perfect for tourists to take home. In this market you can find tea products, trinkets, watches, menswear, antiques and jade products, to name just a few. It is named after a Tin Hau temple and is a great way to experience the local atmosphere. The market extends from Man Ming Lane to Nanking St and is divided into two halves by Tin Hau Temple complex. You can also find inexpensive clothing, watches, fake labels, cookware, footwear and other everyday items.

Hong Kong Disneyland


Whether you are a die-hard Disney fan or simply have kids who loved Frozen and Toys, or maybe you are just curious about the world of Disney, the Hong Kong Disneyland will not disappoint. The Marvel themed rides are thrilling for people of all ages and fans of Iron man must check out the Stark Expo that even has the latest creations from Stark industries. You can try seeing through a pair of StarkVision glasses and can go on an aerial tour of the city. You can also see the Iron Man Tech showcase which is also your chance to meet Tony Stark (Ironman) himself. There are of course, plenty of other non-Ironman related rides and activities that all Disney fans can enjoy.
