I am visting Hk from 2 oct to 5 Oct. I am flying from singapore to Hk by Jet star reaching Hk at 10.30 in the morning and leaving at 10 PM on 5 OCT. Can anyone suggest me things to explore or Itinerary?
I plan on giving one full day to Disney Land ( My 2 Day) and I also wannna watch Ocean park however one my first day please suggest me things to explore on my own?
Any help will be appreciated.
Depends on what your interests are, typical tourists spots are golden bauhinia square, take the tram up to victoria peak, visit madame tussaud wax museum and compare your hand span to those of hk actors at avenue of the stars
then maybe visit ladies market for some souvenirs
i like strolling along hollywood road, see some antique shops, visit man mo temple and colonial style central police station
lunch in soho area or some chinese food along wellington street ( i like dah li for their noodles)
i also like to walk around the traditional market before feasting my eyes around the landmark. then head over to lan kwai fong for dinner and a couple of drinks
oh and i also find it worthwhile to explore the southern area,
repulse bay and stanley for lunch
back to the city and catch a ferry to lamma island for seafood dinner!
Thanks V much Divya you have given nice and detailed ideas to me...I am booked myself in eaton hotel at kawloon District.Plan on giving disney and Ocean park 1 day each...First day i plan on exploring HK and will go to places you have suggested.Last day still dont know wht to do
The Hong Kong museum was great, may be worth a look if you like that sort of thing, tells the whole history of Hong Kong.
To be fair though you wont ggo far wrong just wondering around, theres a great night market up in Mongkok. As Diva said, Soho is great for food, expensive but great. While youre there you can travel along the longest escalator system in the world which is fascinating to see that an entire community of shops and restaurants grew around it.
keep in mind that the mid-levels escalator only goes one way
down during morning rush hours and up on afternoons
another idea juz popped for your last day, hop on the tram which covers hk island for hkd 2 and get off any place that looks interesting, i love it!
Thanks Divya and Gartt ..I feel prepared for my trip one more thing does anyoone know where to buy macbook? As honk kong is far cheaper then singapore!!
Theres a few computer fairs/shops around theres a large one on Hong Kong Island, Wan Chai if I remember right and another in Mong Kok somewhere but I forget. Bear in mind Hong Kong isnt as cheap as it once was though, bring your bartering skills.
I've seen lots of computer shops in hk. Like Gartt mentioned there are computer centres in Mongkok and Wanchai.
You might also want to explore the side streets off Nathan Road and the area around Mongkok MTR. I think the stores there tend to be cheaper.
Anyhow, I think you should visit one of the large chain stores first like Fortress or Broadway for a price check on the model you want before going to the smaller shops or centres.
Thanks to both of you for valuable inputs.I am very excited abot my trip!!!
