Your travel itinerary could look like...
Arrive in Hong Kong
Upon arrival in Hong Kong, you will be met by your tour manager and transfer to your hotel.
In the evening you will have dinner in the hotel restaurant.
AM – Wing Chun, Yau Ma Tei Theatre and the Temple
The day will begin with a practical demonstration of Wing Chun, a style of close-combat Kung Fu developed by Shaolin Monks in the 18th Century. After trying out the martial art made famous by the legendary Bruce Lee, enjoy a visit to one of the oldest eateries in Hong Kong, Mido Café.
Pay a visit to the fascinating Yau Ma Tei Theatre. With its Art Deco exterior, attractive pitched roof and gable walls you’ll get a taste of the history, architecture and atmosphere of this performance venue dedicated to Cantonese opera.
Take a look at the fascinating and historic Red Brick Building before visiting a temple dedicated to Tin Hau, the Goddess of the Sea. Temples that honour her can be found in abundance in Chinese coastal communities and Hong Kong is no exception.
PM – Yau Ma Tei Market and Temple street
In the afternoon, we recommended visiting the Yau Ma Tei Wholesale Fruit Market. Afterwards, stop by a Chinese embroidery shop to witness the gorgeous and intricately detailed red Qun Gua, which is a traditional two-piece wedding dress, being made.
Next, take a coach to the Hong Kong Museum of History. The museum was established in July 1975 when the City Museum and Art Gallery was split into the Hong Kong Museum of History and Hong Kong Museum of Art.
For dinner, try a local restaurant and take a stroll along Temple Street, which is a bustling night market filled with vendors selling all sorts of items.
Finally, end the evening with a boat ride on Victoria Harbour. Climb aboard a junk boat and enjoy the spectacular view of the city skyline from the water.
AM – Tram to the top of the world
Breakfast at the hotel.
Take the Peak Tram to the top of the world – or at the very least, Hong Kong Island. Look out over the world-famous viewpoint at Hong Kong stretching out upwards in all directions, framed by the harbour, the South China Sea, and the mountains of Kowloon beyond.
Continue to Aberdeen Fishing Village, which ties the past with the present. Wooden sampans and junks float nestled amidst skyscrapers and yachts, and women dress in traditional clothes as families pull in the day’s catch. Lunch at a local restaurant.
PM – Repulse bay, Stanley Market and the world-renowned Bubba Gump Shrimp
Lunch at a nearby restaurant.
Afterwards, head over to the beautiful Repulse Bay, named after a British warship that helped defend the settlement from pirates.
The next stop will be Stanley Market, browse through various shops selling both branded and imitation clothes, souvenirs, and handmade crafts like lacquerware and embroidery. This market is a must-visit for both locals and tourists alike, so don’t forget to bargain for a better deal!
Head over to the world-renowned Bubba Gump Shrimp Restaurant to start off the evening on the right note.
AM/PM – Day trip to Lantau Island
You will be travelling by coach for a full-day tour of Lantau Island. Located at the mouth of the Pearl River, Lantau is Hong Kong’s largest island, offering breathtaking natural beauty, beaches, and charming fishing villages just an hour away from the city.
The tour starts at Tai O, where the Tanka people, a local fishing community, have built houses on stilts above the tidal flats. These connected houses have earned the nickname “Venice of the Orient” due to their close relationship with the water.
Afterwards, enjoy lunch at a local restaurant before visiting Po Lin Monastery, one of the most significant sites in Hong Kong.
Enjoy the fragrant flowers and birds fluttering through the manicured garden, then hike up to the top of the 34-meter tall, bronze Tian Tan Buddha statue.
Hike back down from the Big Buddha to Ngong Ping village. Catch a 360-cable car from here back to the main island, watching the picturesque mountainside soar by below. Return to your hotel at the end of the day.
Dinner is of your own arrangement.
Overnight at your hotel.
PM – THE OCEAN PARK TOUR – CAUSEWAY BAY and FAREWELL DINNER
Lunch at a local restaurant.
After visiting The Vine Church, in the afternoon you will spend a day at the famous theme park in Hong Kong, The Ocean Park! This marine animal and amusement park is one of the world’s most beautiful theme parks and the second largest in Hong Kong.
One of the park’s newest attractions, a Polar Adventure, awaits discovery. Hop on a bobsled to careen through the North and South Poles, passing an extraordinary range of exotic polar wildlife on the way.
Climb from the ocean into the sky on the Ocean Park Tower. Rise a breathtaking 72 metres above the ground, then enjoy a panoramic view as the platform rotates 360 degrees around. Keep an eye out for Aberdeen Harbour and Repulse Bay in the distance.
Explore extraordinary aquatic worlds and head to the Grand Aquarium to see more than 400 different marine species, including hammerhead sharks, stingrays and manta rays, and turtles. This is a captivating underwater universe full of surprises!
Late PM – Causeway Bay and Farewell Dinner
In the late afternoon, you will enjoy leisure time at Causeway Bay. Causeway Bay is Hong Kong’s energetic retail heart. Luxury malls, department stores and boutiques pack its western end, while bargain hunters roam the Jardine’s Crescent street market. Numerous dining options, from upscale restaurants to street-food stalls, dot the area. Local meeting points include Hong Kong Central Library, with its historic collections, and tranquil Victoria Park, popular for Tai chi sessions.
