If this is your first visit, invest in room with a harbour view.
Check to see if there is a horse race meeting scheduled . There are two tracks , one at Happy Valley (near Causeway Bay) usually for night racing , the other at Sha Tin in the New Territories . A real experience , even if you do not gamble . Season is usually September to July .
Hong Kong is a work hard/play hard city that never seems to sleep, it just pauses for a few hours to catch its breath!
Take time to explore on foot . Just walking the streets can be fascinating , but take a headed note paper from your hotel to assist with return directions . Or take a tram ride and just enjoy the sights . Visit Aberdeen for the floating junks , Stanley or Ladies Market for bargain shopping – very little is the genuine article but the prices are very negotiable . Head up to Lan Kwai Fong area for numerous bars and restaurants .
The subway transport system is one of the most efficient and well organised and links all of the main points , both on HK Island and Kowloon . Enquire about a tourist pass for your convenience . And of course you simply must experience the Star Ferry .
Check to see if your hotel has a roof top bar – if not plan to visit one that does . The night time neon light show is amazing .
Our featured hotels would be our suggestions, however through our local agents we have contract rates at many more.
