    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.

    Took a trolly ride up, walked up a mall to see this beauty in real life. The trolly ride was beautiful.

    Always love the sea breeze when taking a ferry. Given that the fare is lower than traveling by MTR or 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.

    The HKJC Happy Valley Race course is one in town unlike Shatin Racecourse which is a bit far off from the central district. The happy valley race course is a very famous place for night races where a lot of people enjoy themselves at the public stand eating drinking and even dancing at times.. the restaurants for Owners as well as Members are quite a few however they i would advise anyone with a special food diet to try and contact the restaurant in advance to arrange for your own special dishes in advance as people whom are Vegan / Vegetarian / NON Beef & NON Pork eaters at times have load of problems to eat at the restaurants when there are races that day.

    The Dragon's Back Trail is one of the most popular urban hikes in all of Hong Kong. Located in the Shek O Country Park, this is an easy, well-surfaced and maintained trail with a few moderately difficult ascends. As such, you will find hikers and walkers of all fitness levels doing this hike, including families with little ones.

    Most begin at the southern end of the trail near Tei Wan Village and make the roughly 8km hike north to Big Wave Bay. Bus route 9 from Shau Kei Wan (MTR Exit A) to Shek O has a drop off at To Tei Wan at the Dragon's Back trailhead. At Big Wave Bay, you can take red minibus to 'Shau Kei Wan' or call in a taxi when ready to head back to the city.

    The Dragon's Back Trail is particularly impressive in the southern section where it winds a ridge and provides rewarding views the Shek O Peninsula and sea to the east. To the west, you will be able to see much of the southern side of Hong Kong Island. When sky conditions are favourable, the views are outstanding.

    The northern half of the trail is very flat and easy for walking, it winds through forested and some exposed parts. There are a few places with tables to rest and public toilets. You'll also find a couple of places to link up with other trails such as the Pottinger Road and Gap north of the final descend into Big Wave Bay.

    Overall, Dragon's Back is a good trail. It is accessible, easy to hike, views can be outstanding on clear days. Unfortunately, this means heavy foot traffic as well, particularly on weekends and public holidays. Keep that in mind if planning on including this hike during your time in Hong Kong.

    I went two times. The first time I spend 7h inside the museum and I didn’t read all the the documents! We’re entering on the down of earth and leave in the after recession of Hong Kong. You must take your all day for appreciate this museum. So much to learn! Every room is a new experience. Every times I have friends or family coming in HK, this is a must go!

    The slow but cheap Ding Ding is one of the must-ride for tourists. If you are not in a hurry, take a Ding Ding and enjoy the street view of the Hong Kong side!

    So much to enjoy. Yes, gorgeous garden with wandering paths and picture-perfect settings at every turn. Calm and serene. What sets it apart from similar parks is the addition of wood and rocks. Wood in a beautiful display of structures like the nunnery made from special joinery; no nails. The wood smell and cooler temp in this delightful gallery was quite special. Rocks of all sorts for the garden in a lovely way, and feature with philosophical quotes in the nunnery. Beautiful.

    Oddly enough, situated directly opposite Plaza Hollywood.

    Well, I thought it was an interesting juxtaposition.

    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.

    The Tsim Sha Tsui promenade is where the Kowloon Peninsula meets Victoria Harbour in Hong Kong. Here you find a fine stretch of waterfront that starts at the Star Ferry Pier and runs east along what is known as the Avenue of Stars and stretching past the newly opened Victoria Dockside.

    Here you will find heritage attractions such as the Star Ferry and historic Clock Tower. Along the Avenue of Stars you will be able to learn a bit about Hong Kong film history while checking out the neat installations, seating benches and art space created outside and within the new K11 Musea.

    There are monuments including the Hong Kong Films Award statue and the famous Bruce Lee statue that are popular for visitors. This is also where you find the Hong Kong Museum of Art (HKMOA), Space Museum (currently under restorations) and the Culture Centre, where performances are held throughout the year.

    Lastly, you will be rewarded with lovely views of the harbour and the world famous Hong Kong Skyline which is remarkable to see on clear sunny days as well as most nights when the skyline is lit up brightly for all to enjoy. There is a nightly laser light show called the Symphony of lights begins at 8pm. Most impressive are annual fireworks shows over the harbour that can be viewed well from the Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade. A Particularly impressive show is held with the annual Chinese New Year holiday.

    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.
