    This place is a great way to see the beauty of the nature and architecture. It has a long way to go up, but the view is wonderful. You can get there by bus.

    We visited Lantau island in October.
    Our main destinations were,
    Tian Tan buddha
    Ngong Ping Village
    Wisdom path
    Tai O fishery village
    Fu Shan View Point
    Cheung sha beach

    We started our journey as early as possible. We arrived to Tung Chung around 10.30am. From MTR we walked pass through the bus terminal to the other side to take bus 23 to go to Ngong Ping Village. Wisdom path is also located in Ngong ping village. We covered all these areas within like 2hrs and took the bus No 21 to Tai O. Gets down at the last stop and keep walking through the village to and the trail path to Fu shan view point. It was a very sunny day there is no cover on top. We didnt spend much time there and we came to Cheung sha beach. You can take anybus that comes to Tung Chung from Tai O but you have to ask the bus driver to stop the bus to get off and the bech.

    What a find. The 10.000 Buddha Monastery is a true and wonderful experience. One has to climb steps to reach the main temple but is rewarded by the view of the lined up monks on the way. There are seats provided along the climb. Once you reach the main temple, you look at 10.000 Buddhas all lined up. There are larger size monks, other buddha sculptures as well a pagoda which no closed to climb up because of the coronavirus. You shall be at inner peace and enjoy the splendid surroundings of Shatin. There is a gift shop that sells refreshments too. One can climb up further to see more of stone carved generals and other female sculptures. To sum it up, sensational. If you are in Hong Kong for a longer time, go there. It is free and one has to strike it off one's bucket list.

    There're some offshore islands good for day trip and I picked Lamma Island for my nephew last Sunday. We took ferry from Central pier and the ride was very cozy with excellent air con (very important these days) and less than 30 mins.

    Our route was from Yung Shue Wan (some western restaurants) to Sok Kwu Wan (some Chinese seafood restaurants) via the Hung Shing Yeh Beach.

    The path was flat with a bit uphill, we walked awhile, ate awhile (eg the famous Ah Po Tofu) and took a rest in the kiosks on the way. We had lunch in the Concerto Inn which is next to the Hung Shing Yeh beach.

    It's a sunny hot day. Felt so good to sweat 💦 We spent nearly 7 hours in the island. This place is less crowded than Cheung Chau, another popular island.

    An interesting choice. I think if you're from Hong Kong, it's definitely worth a trip, but if you're visiting on a holiday and you have limited time, not sure it's worth the trip.

    A lot of the value of coming here is to contextualize how far/different Hong Kong is now compared to its roots. There are a couple of nice things to buy here, including some traditional ingredients like seafood and shrimp paste. It is also connected to several hiking paths.

    My suggestion would be to come in the winter.

    BTW the most common way to get here is to go to the Tung Chung MTR station, then take the giant bus that everyone is lining up for.

    Sai Kung has long been a popular place for residents and tourists enjoying the laid back seaside atmosphere, promenade, boat trips and alfresco dining scene. However, it has become something of a street art scene in recent years as well.

    The HKWalls annual art event was held in Sai Kung in May 2021, as part of this event, quite a few of the building walls were brought to life with interesting artworks. You can find many of them around Man Yee Square and the buildings nearby. If you are into street art, walk around this square and take some back alleys to see what unfolds upon the walls you pass by.

    Watching a live horse race has long been an indispensable part of any Hong Kong trip. Even for non-gamblers, the racecourse itself is very enjoyable. Penfold Park, a lush open space with pleasant greenery and lakes, is a perfect weekend respite. The peaceful environment and panorama are unparalleled in the city. It is also one of the few pet-friendly locations. When fed up with the urban bust and crowd, this will be a lovely option.

    Mongkok is a bustling district where Hong Kong's youthfulness, energy and creativity collides with old school culture, buildings and markets. It is a thriving district that is packed with crowds of all ages going about their respective lives and leisure interests.

    There are numerous street markets scattered around Mongkok, one that I like is the Nelson Street Wet Market found on the west side of Nathan Road and Langham Place shopping mall and situated between Tong Mi Road (west) and Reclamation Street (east).

    Nelson Street is lined with vegetable, fruit, meat, seafood, sundries dealers. You'll find loads of delicious fresh food as well as peculiar finds including fresh tofu blocks, thousand year eggs, Chinese medicine packs, frogs and other things you will rarely if ever see in western wet (food) markets.

    The market is under large red umbrellas offering shade during midday when the sun is out. Still better to go from mid to late morning (9.30am) when stalls are stocked up and at their best for pictures. The trade-off is that the street can be packed with shoppers at this time of day as well.

    In the end, you can actually traditional wet markets all around Hong Kong. If you are in Mongkok and interested in seeing one, this is a convenient and fun one to visit. Otherwise, it is rather easy to find good options elsewhere around the city as well.

    Po Lin Monastery is the most popular Buddhist temple in Hong Kong for sure. It certainly does not offer the serene, peaceful experience like any other religious institutions. The building itself is pretty grand, though. Unfortunately signboard or illustration is lacking. A good place to meander and spend a couple hours.

    Great quiet place to go for religious and non religious reasons. A bit far out but totally worth it. Will go back

    There is presently a very good special exhibition - Tsar of All Russia - Holiness and Splendour of Power that is being held at the Hong Kong Heritage Museum in Sha Tin until 29 Aug 2021. The exhibition features 170 sets of exquisite treasures from the Moscow Kremlin Museums that are well organised and displayed in 6 gallery rooms. Museum opening hours are 10am to 6pm (daily) but closed on Tuesdays.

    The exhibition requires special ticket (HK$10 per person). Note the permanent exhibitions and other special exhibitions are free to the public to visit. Items include relics, ornamental pieces, original maps of the Kremlin and paintings of the Royal Tsars. They are unique and attractive and well described by English and Cantonese signage and information. There is also free wifi at the museum so you can access a mobile audio guide describing a handful of the exhibition highlights. Allow 30-45 minutes to browse this exhibition.

    You can visit the Hong Kong Heritage Museum website to learn about the various permanent and temporary exhibitions before making your way. Note they also have a small eatery called The Alchemist on the ground floor for those who want a drink and/or snack and chance to take a rest in between exhibition visits at the museum.

    Lived here in Discovery Bay for over 4 years having previously lived in Kennedy Town. Work in Central on HK Island. Very convenient to get to Central - the boats are frequent and throughout the day. Only about 1 hour door to door for me to get to work. Feels very relaxing here after a day in Central. Easy to get to airport with convenient bus services all day as well. Buses also take you around the area easily. Few good bars and restaurants. Basic shopping needs. And a nice beach. If you are visiting DB is not a bad place to base yourself but it's not really the HK you would be looking for I suspect.

    This is one of Hong Kong's famous long-distance trails, stretching 70 kilometers across and around Lantau Island, starting and stopping at Mui Wo. The trail is partitioned into 12 sections with a range of distance and degree of challenge. It skirts coastline, mountain ridges and crosses several of HK's tallest peaks.

    There are distance markers throughout the trail around every 500 metres. The trail is well marked and easy to follow. Probably the most famous sections are #2 (Nam Shan to Pak Kung Au) taking in the strenuous hike up to Sunset Peak and #3 (Pak Kung Au to Ngong Ping 360 village) similarly taking in Lantau Peak which is also referred to as Sunrise Peak. These are some of the highest peaks in Hong Kong, affording hikers outstanding views.

    Note: You will find public toilets at the start/finish of the trail sections as well and bus stops - transportation to/from Mui Wo or Tung Chung, depending on where you are accessing various trail sections. The trails that scale Lantau's peaks are exposed to the weather elements so do come prepared with adequate hiking wear, sunscreen, hats as well as sufficient food and water for your hike.
