Flights to Hong Kong

When booking flights to Hong Kong, think of it as two distinct areas – Hong Kong Island, which lots of people compare with Manhattan, and Kowloon. Hong Kong Island is generally the more popular destination with tourists, so that’s where you’ll find the movers and shakers of the city’s dining and nightlife scene, as well as its most luxurious hotels.

Having said that, Kowloon is a cool, up-and-coming destination with lounges and restaurants, vibrant shopping areas and, best of all, cheaper luxury hotels. Whichever you decide to make your base, it’s quite easy to travel between Hong Kong Island and Kowloon across the iconic Hong Kong Harbour, either by hopping on the Star Ferry or via the underground metro system.

Hong Kong makes for a wonderfully family-friendly holiday too. Children of all ages will be thrilled by the panda pens at Ocean Park theme park (as will their parents), and everyone will enjoy trying to spot Hong Kong’s indigenous pink dolphins during a ferry ride to Lantau Island.

Wherever you go in Hong Kong, go with an appetite – this is a city that’s all about consumption, whether you’re talking about dining, culture or shopping. There are over 11,000 restaurants in the city – from Michelin-starred destinations and celebrity chef-helmed spots to street food cafes. When it comes to retail therapy, Causeway Bay and Temple Street Night Market will entice you to spend your Hong Kong dollars.

Of course, it’s not just skyscrapers and shopping malls – boat trips across the harbour, island hopping, and hiking up Victoria Peak will remind you that Hong Kong’s natural beauty more than matches its man-made charms.

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.

Jumbo Kingdom Floating Restaurant (International)

Sometimes you want to avoid the usual tourist spots, and other times you just have to follow the crowds to the most awe-inspiring places. That’s the case with Jumbo Kingdom, a massive floating restaurant on Shing Mun River that looks like an imperial palace. It's hugely popular and seats more than 2,000 diners.

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.

The Upper House

This stylish hotel was designed by the legendary Andre Fu. All the rooms are huge, but it’s worth splashing out for a grander suite with views over the harbour.
