What to do in Hong Kong

What to do in Hong Kong? We've some ideas for you!

Okay, so you have finally landed in Hong Kong, for leisure, for business or for both. You are now sitting in your hotel room wondering what to do in Hong Kong? Perhaps you have limited time, perhaps you don't know where to start. 


Great news, our blog is setup to offer free travel advice. Feel free to use us as a starting point, use us as a alternative source to the main stream media or your hotel concierge. Why are we doing this? We too are frequent travellers. We know how it feels to sit in a hotel room, look at a tourist map and wondering which places are worth while to visit! What's important is that we want you to put on your shoes and start to explore Hong Kong as soon as possible!


Here are some quick tips if you only have five minutes:
  1. Find out where you are. If you are in Kowloon, go visit Mong Kok and Tsim Sha Tsui. If you are on the Hong Kong Island, go visit Wan Chai and Central. If you are at neither, just pick one from the four. These are the most exciting districts in Hong Kong.
  2. Find the nearest MTR station (local subway / underground railway / metro) and purchase an Octopus Card. You can use this card to pay for transportation and food.
  3. There are plenty of food choices in town. For your reference: if a person pays $30 to $50 for an average meal, s/he's a local; $100 to $150, s/he a local who knows how to enjoy life; $250 or above, s/he is a tourist.
  4. If you wish to meet the opposite sex, go to a street called Lan Kwai Fong at night. If you wish to pay to meet the opposite sex, go to Lockhart Road in Wan Chai or Portland Street in Mong Kok.
  5. Beware of anyone who approach you in the streets, including: beggers, "volunteers" from "familiar NGOs", someone who offer tailor services.
  6. Come back and search our site for more tips.
