Hong Kong Island
For a spectacular view over Hong Kong
visit Victoria Peak, the highest mountain
on the island. From the summit, look down
on the skyscrapers of the business district
and across Victoria Harbour to Kowloon.
This is one of the most famous cityscapes
in the world.
Visit Aberdeen on the opposite side
of the island where you can ride on a
sampan and explore the busy harbour.
Also stop off at the famous Stanley Market
to hunt for a bargain.
The New Territories lie between the
populous district of Kowloon and the
border with mainland China. There is a
surprising amount of natural beauty in this part of Hong Kong with rolling green hills and woodlands dominating
the landscape. Learn about Confucian, Taoist and Buddhist
beliefs at the Yuen Yuen Institute, one of
Hong Kong’s most impressive monasteries,
and visit Fanling Walled Village which is the
ancestral home of a family clan. Also visit a
bird sanctuary known for its pond herons
and explore a traditional fishing village.
