The best travel experiences are not always planned, but preparing an itinerary when visiting Hong Kong helps you make the most of your time while there. With so many attractions and activities to choose from, picking which ones to put on your list first can be overwhelming. But if you want a list of some of the things you need to see and do when in Hong Kong, here are a few that should set you off to a good start.
1. Don’t miss the iconic view from Victoria Peak. And for a spectacular experience, try taking in the views of Hong Kong and its nature scenery from inside the Peak Tram. See the stunning sights that include Victoria Harbour among many others that the panoramic views provide.
2. Explore the city’s famous food scene. Experience a dim sum buffet and enjoy the wide selection of dumplings, buns, and other dishes served in traditional bamboo steamer baskets. The street foods are likewise worth checking out. Some of the must-try dishes, snacks, and sweets you need to try are the Cheung fun, curry fish balls, egg tarts, egg waffles, fried or roasted chestnuts, pineapple buns, siu mai, and stinky tofu. The city is also home to several Michelin restaurants and other dining options to suit your tastes.
3. Take a boat ride onboard the Star Ferry that has been around for over a century. The scenic ride offers great views of the city. This visual treat you get to enjoy as the ferry glides across Victoria Harbour is definitely worth the affordable ticket for the ride.
