    I can’t find any fault at all with this park. It’s very well done, clean, green, good for families, couples, joggers, singles. Even good during a lunch break. Very conveniently located in Admiralty - walking distance from the train stop, shopping complex and hotels. You can spend a good hour there and not feel bored. It has an impressive aviary. No charges for entry. Lots of turtles in a very nice pond, a man made waterfall, a look-out post, a tea museum, nice jogging grounds, toilets - all in one place. Highly recommend to visit.

    For those who want to see a different side to Hong Kong, visiting one of the outlying islands is a great thing to do. Cheung Chau Island is one of the easiest and best to visit. It has all the old-world charm of a fishing village, with a colourful harbour, traditional temples, small roadside shrines and a string of local seafood restaurants along the waterfront.
    The highlights of our most recent trip were swimming, a coastal walk along part of the Looped Family Trail and lunch at Pirate Bay, where the French owner does a whole roast chicken.
    Rather than swim at the main Tung Wan Beach, we prefer to continue a little further around the headland instead to Kwan Yum Beach. It’s smaller but it’s also prettier, quieter and has the charming Hing See beach-shack bar.
    GETTING TO CHEUNG CHAU: Public ferries run all day, roughly every 30 min from #5 Central Pier. It is only a short walk from HK MTR station and the piers are numbered in order, from 1-10 so it is easy to find the #5. If you don’t already have an Octopus travel card then you can buy tickets at the gate. There are 2 choices of ferries – the big, slow ferry or the smaller, fast ferry. Both leave from #5. The slow ferry takes just under an hour and is $14 HKD one way. The fast ferry takes half that and is $25 HKD. If you tend to get queasy on boats, the fast ferry is a much smoother ride and is a/c throughout. The advantage of the slow ferry is that you can sit outside. If you have the time, the slow ferry is a very cruisy and scenic trip.

    If you're travelling to Hong Kong, the Victoria Harbour undoubtedly is a must-visit spot. You can witness the prosperous of the city built on both sides of the harbour.

    Here, you can enjoy the sun rising on one side of the harbour and sun setting in another side. When the night comes, the stunning view of Hong Kong cityview will appear along the Victoria Harbour.

    Locate just beside the Central Ferry Pier, the observation wheel of Hong Kong, will only cost you 20HKD for a 10-minute ride (was over 100HKD/ride before the acquisition).

    This is our third time here and the family is still enjoying the view much. I must say, this 20HKD is one of the best well spent 20HKD in Hong Kong.

    Tai Kwun has probably been Hong Kong's very best revitalisation projects to date, making superb use of the historic Central Police Station, Victoria Prison and Central Magistracy situated along Hollywood Road for the purpose of heritage preservation and fostering of local arts and culture. It is mostly free to the public to enjoy throughout the year and a place well worth visiting from time to time.

    First and foremost, this is a collection of declared monument buildings which have been restored and repurposed with several permanent exhibitions (Story-telling spaces) related to the former Police Station, Prison and Magistracy. The old Parade grounds are regularly used for large scale events and new buildings such as the JC contemporary art museum have been added to provide more performance space. There is some retail shopping available and a surprisingly good collection of restaurants, bars and coffee shops within.

    You can pick up brochures, map and other general information from the Visitor Centre as well as by visiting the Tai Kwun website. Many events require reservations but the museum and permanent exhibitions can be viewed at any time. Easy to pass by for a quick 30 minute walk around while spending time in the Central District or allow for 2-3 hours to walk through the various historical buildings, see whatever art exhibitions are being held and to grab a light bite to eat at one of the food and drink venues at Tai Kwun. This can make for a rewarding experience for those who enjoy history, architecture, heritage, arts and culture.

    I have visited the Peak Tram twice now and it offers the most beautiful scenic views of HK. It's best to visit when it's quiet, otherwise there can be long queues.

    Made my first visit of this year yesterday. Sure had tons of fun meeting my favorite celebrities! Had little trouble with the rotating pinkish blue overhead lighting above most of the displayed figures. Other than that it was worth the visit. Staff were very friendly as usual.

    Two wishes I've at the moment is if the displays could be used with just one type of overhead lighting and inclusion of refreshments outlet within the visiting area even if it's limited with bottles of plain water. I spent nearly 5 hours inside starting from the opening hours and desperately wished for a drop of water to drink....

    Will definitely visit again, awaiting the arrival of Manny Pacquiao!

    IFC is a luxury and high-end shopping mall in Central District that has an interesting Orient Express themed Christmas decoration programme for the 2021 holiday season. There are a few smaller displays scattered around the mall. However, the main display area is found in the oval atrium area.

    What you find here is a make-shift train station with ticket collection booth, platform as well as a train engine and carriage car. Some history of the Orient Express exhibited at the back of the station for the history buffs.

    Overall, this is a pretty good change of pace from the traditional Christmas themes and decorations they've done in past years. It is worth a look-see if you plan to be at IFC between now and the end of the holiday season.

    When arriving at the ferry terminal take your time and dont be rushed through by people selling you tickets as we did. We were sold tickets to Macau Taipa instead of Macau outer harbour ferry terminal. Luckily enough if you do arrive in Taipa it is possible to get a free shuttle bus to Macau. We chose one of the casino buses and walked to our hotel from the casino without too much trouble. The trip over to Macau lasts just an hour and was pretty smooth.

    Lan Kwai Fong (known as LKF) used to be a bustling area full of locals and tourists alike. It’s known for music playing in the streets, amazing restaurants, people drinking and dancing while roaming establishments and some of the best bands in the world but it has taken a major hit. Compared to last year, a shop owner told us sales are down more than. 60% and I believe it...the streets were bare and most places empty at 10pm on a Saturday night. It’s worth checking out in any trip to HK but it’s not what it used to be and I hope it comes back.

    A MUST visit when coming to Hong Kong! The unsuspecting name does not reveal the true importance and value of this museum. It describes vividly the more than 300 years of trade between the West and China - especially the European trade with China via Hong Kong. We can learn that there is nothing new to this world - todays trade and relationship issues and mutual benefits for both worlds have not much changed in principle - all that changed is technology and media. We can learn from this museum that trade between the western world and China is mutually beneficial since hundreds of years - so we can truly relax a little bit in our overexcited times and refrain from getting carried away with the different political systems in place. It's does not matter on either side - Let's learn a bit from history and how we are in the end all just humans who want to have a decent good life ! this museum is very educational and teaches is us daily life in the "old times" and you will be surprised how close it is to the "new times" that we live in. Spend 2 hours there BUT GO ON WEEKENDS when volunteers are there to explain you details - otherwise you will not capture the essence of the trade history and how it relates to today's world. THE guides are very knowledgeable and competent and extremely friendly and helpful. A privately run Museum - my respect.
    Absolutely worth a visit.

    Even the garden was small, there were different kinds of animals, birds, pretty flowers and plants there. The condition was comfortable and not crowded. Resting place was provided. A good place for relaxation. Such landscaped garden was suitable for the family also. There was about 15-20 minutes walking from Central MTR station. It was real attraction although Green House was closed due to COVID-19.
