What to do in Hong Kong

Go dolphin watching

Hong Kong’s pink dolphins are a fascinating but endangered species, and if you get a chance to see them grab it. Go with Hong Kong Dolphinwatch, the only tour operator recognised by the Hong Kong Tourism Board. They run three-hour boat tours three days a week.

Shop at Temple Street Night Market

To say shopping is popular in Hong Kong is a bit of an understatement. The most famous shopping area is Causeway Bay, which has everything from malls to boutiques. There’s also Temple Street Night Market, where you can haggle for pretty much anything.

See the Lam Tsuen Wishing Trees

Gaze up at the Lam Tsuen Wishing Trees and you’ll see hundreds of pieces of josh paper on the branches – thrown by festive-goers making wishes. It is an old tradition that continues to this day. You can also visit the nearby Tin Hau Temple, dedicated to the Goddess of the Sea, which was built in the 18th century.

See the city from Peak Tower

Peak Tower is one of the biggest tourist attractions in Hong Kong. Take the very steep tram up the mountain and you’ll be rewarded with panoramic views of the harbour and the city. Head to Sky Terrace 428 for incredible views; the best time to go is at dusk, when you can watch the skyline light up.

Daytrip to Lantau Island

This beautiful island is well worth the ferry ride. On Lantau Island, you can see the world’s largest outdoor seated bronze Buddha (34m high), the Tian Tan Buddha, and then visit the peaceful Po Lin Monastery. Be sure to take a boat tour around the stilt houses in the fishing village of Tai O.

Be a big kid at Ocean Park

This family-friendly theme park in Wong Chuk Hang is divided into two levels connected by a sky tram, and features a children’s playground, rides, and animal encounters. The best part? Visiting the panda pen on the lower level, which is, let’s face it, fun for adults too.

Australian Dairy Company (International)

Even on weekday mornings the tables are packed, and with good reason. The chefs at ADC have a knack for turning the simple into the exquisite – the scrambled eggs on toast is out of this world. If you have a sweet tooth, try the generous portions of French toast or the milk pudding.
