Things to do in Hong Kong
Hong Kong is perfect example of how east meets west. It became Britain’s colony in 1842, and became an international trade, finance, and culture centre under its rule.
Now, Hong Kong combines Chinese traditions with British culture. So no worries because that also means the locals can speak Cantonese, Mandarin, and English.
From colonial to cosmopolitan, the city is a gateway for exploring the rest of Asia. Besides shopping in Hong Kong, the city has plenty to offer you with tourist attractions, mouth-watering meals, spectacular views, numerous festivals and more.
See all of Hong Kong and its iconic skyscrapers at Victoria Peak, where you’ll find the best views of the city, day or night. If you want a bit of whimsy, buy your tickets to Hong Kong Disneyland to relive your childhood. For Hong Kong’s other best theme park, try Ocean Park and hang out with the animals.
Want to feel more of the east? Take the MTR to see Tsim Sha Tsui Clock Tower in Kowloon or hop on the Ngong Ping 360 cable car for a breathtaking ride to the Giant Buddha on Lantau Island!
If you’re looking to spend your Hong Kong Dollars, Causeway Bay is your shopping haven. Other shopping centres you can go to are The Landmark, Harbour City, and Pacific Place. Bargain hunt and test your haggling skills in Mongkok, Tsim Sha Tsui, and Tung Chung.
Is your night just starting? Then check out the Temple Street Night Market, or wine and dine in SoHo and Lan Kwai Fong.
Feeling festive? Join in on Hong Kong’s festivals throughout the year. Celebrate the Chinese New Year in February, Dragon Boat Festival in June, Hong Kong National Day in October, Christmas Winterfest in December among others!

When to visit Hong Kong
Used to our climate? Then the best time to visit Hong Kong is by the end of April when it’s drier and warmer. Temperatures drop during the last quarter of the year for pleasant weather during the holiday season. Between late May and mid-September, you might experience high temperatures and severe weather.
You can also book flights and fly to Hong Kong anytime since Australians can stay in the city within 90 days without a visa. Just make sure your passport is valid for at least six months, and you’re ready to go.
Travelling to and around Hong Kong
Direct flights and all other flights land at Hong Kong International Airport HKG on the island of Chek Lap Kok. Read this and know your way around HKIA. Travel from the Hong Kong airport to the city centre by:

There are many ways to wander Hong Kong including taxi, bus, train, car hire and booked tours from holiday packages. But we recommend the Mass Transit Railway (MTR), which has signs in English and connects you to most Hong Kong destinations.
