TOP 15 THINGS TO DO IN HONG KONG – Travel Guide | 4K

Published by Darron Toy on

If you thought Hong Kong was just skyscrapers
and bright lights, guess again. It’s a mix of both dazzling cityscapes and
the jaw dropping landscapes that surround it. Here are my top favorite things we did in
Hong Kong. 1. Buy an Octopus Card before you do any exploring. This handy little card got us around the city
by bus, train, tram, and ferry. We are navigating the streets of Hong Kong. We're doing good. I'm proud of us. And when you leave Hong Kong, you can return
the card and get any money back that’s left on the card. 2. Hop on the Star Ferry. Star Ferry boats are a pleasant way to see
Victoria Harbour. Ferry rides in Hong Kong are also a popular
way to get around, but I’d consider avoiding the high speed ferries—apparently the increase
in fast ferry traffic has been gravely endangering Hong Kong’s pink dolphin population. 3. Take in the view from Victoria Peak. While this is the more touristy way to see
the Hong Kong skyline, it’s one you can’t leave without experiencing. We rode up by bus, which is the cheaper route,
and rode back down by Peak Tram. At Victoria Peak, you can enjoy the skyline
for free or you can pay to go up further to the Sky Terrace 428 for the highest panoramic
view. It feels like it took forever to get up here
to the Sky Deck but it is so worth it especially at night to see Hong Kong all lit up. Show them, let them see for themselves. It's so beautiful. 4. My personal favorite. Hike Lion Rock! To me, the view is even better than Victoria
Peak, and it’s free. It’s not very popular amongst tourists,
which is why it was so great. I only ran into a few locals and they were
all very friendly, so even though I tackled this hike alone, I never felt unsafe. Wow, oh my gosh. Yeah very good. So he said Hong Kong island is over there
and then this is the Kowloon Peninsula. Right? Yes. Hello. Hello! What's your name? Look Look. He's so nice, I ran into him right before
I got to the peak and he offered to come up with me and show me a little bit of what I
was actually looking at over the viewpoint. Thank you so much. You're welcome. 5. A more posh way to experience a good view,
is to sip a cocktail at a rooftop bar. We went to OZONE, the rooftop sky bar at the
Ritz Carlton. Beware though; they strictly enforce their
dress code after 9pm. 6. Don’t just have a cocktail with a good view. Wake up to one! There are plenty of hotels in Hong Kong with
good views, but we chose Hotel Icon. They’ll even pick you up in a Tesla, my
favorite car company, if you book one of their clubs or suites for 2 or more nights. 7. See a Symphony of Lights. Every night at 8pm, you’ll see colorful
lights and laser beams bursting from the skyline on both sides of Victoria Harbour. 8. Stroll along the Promenade. For more amazing views, walk along the Tsim
Sha Tsui Promenade where you can enjoy gazing at the architecture right along the water. We're walking back to our hotel and one thing
that we've noticed is that almost everywhere you stop, there's just a really pretty view
to take in. Yep. 9. Shop for electronics! Although it’s not as cheap as it was several
years ago, if you go to the right places, you might be able to find some good bargains. You can probably go to Amazon and get this
for cheaper. But I haven't begun the negotiation process
so I'm pretty sure it can go down lower if you attempt to negotiate with them. This place is huge! I've never seen so many electronics in my
life. That was just one level. There's still more to go. 10. Experience the Street Markets. We went to Temple Street Night Market where
Karl got to practice his negotiation skills. He wants to buy a karaoke microphone just
so that he can annoy me when we get back home. Say something I'm giving up on you. I never go anywhere without this bag, it always
come in handy for something. So we started out at HK $380 and this guy
was a firm negotiator like he wouldn't budge for nothing. I had to walk around and act like I saw it
cheaper somewhere else. 11. If you’re feeling adventurous, try some
street food, especially dim sum if you come across it. Fried sweet potato? Mmm, this is really good, you should try it. 12. For a cultural experience, visit Tai O, a
fishing village on stilts located on Lantau Island. Here you can walk around the village, eat
traditional Cantonese food, and take a boat tour. The boat tours often advertise pink dolphin
sightings, but sadly these beautiful creatures are in danger of becoming extinct due to pollution
and large scale construction. You can help them by following some of the
advice in my Eco-Friendly Travel Tips video, like avoiding plastic and other things that
end up in the ocean like skin products that contain microbeads. You can also contact Hong Kong’s ferry companies
to ask them to slow down or sign the petition to reroute ferry traffic. 13. See the Big Buddha. You can do this during the same excursion
you make to Tai O village since it’s nearby. I didn't even realize the Big Buddha was right
behind us as we were walking away from it but look how big that thing is. 14. While visiting the Big Buddha, you can also
explore Ngong Ping village. But, heads up, don’t expect a traditional
cultural experience. This is a more commercialized area, complete
with Western familiarities like Starbucks and Subway. 15. And finally, ride on the Ngong Ping Cable
Car for some beautiful scenery. It’s best to do this while it’s still
light out though. Unfortunately, we didn’t quite make it before
sunset. Also when you leave Hong Kong, don’t forget
to turn that Octopus Card in to get refunded for the remaining balance on the card! Want to see more of our adventures in Asia? Check out our entire honeymoon playlist and

Miguel Wang · July 29, 2019 at 3:01 pm

I recommend to also hike Tai Tam and Dragon’s Back.

Tomos Jenkyn-Jones · July 29, 2019 at 3:01 pm

This is only a quarter of what Hong Kong has to offer…in Saikung you can do alot of water sports (try out a yacht club called hebe haven [yacht club] it is a bit pricey, but it is pretty good)
Ocean park and Disney land are pretty good tourist attractions (I recommend ocean park for those who seek thrilling rides because most of the rides are really high and near or literally built from the ground up from a deep drop)
I could list more, but that would bore you out–care to explore for yourself?

6:07 that’s what she said

Miguel Wang · July 29, 2019 at 3:01 pm

To pronounce Tsim Sha Tsui it’s not shim-sha-shu-wi it’s chim-sha-choi

Thank you so much for this amazing overview. We have seen a lot of astonishing spots in your video that we want to visit now.

Irina · July 29, 2019 at 3:01 pm

Your video is exactly I was looking for ❤️

LordArioh · July 29, 2019 at 3:01 pm

views of the cities from the top of anything are overrated, I've seen Tokyo from several spots, Osaka, Nagasaki from Inasayama, Hiroshima, Kyoto, Seoul, Busan, Bergen, not to mention the ones you see from airplanes.. they all look the same, the only difference is they are either surrounded by mountains or not. Relatively small towns like Innsbruck or Odda on the other hand are making a quite more interesting composition.

Rockhem Jade Raclip · July 29, 2019 at 3:01 pm

Omg Im going to Hongkong and hey you look like Miss Universe USA 2019

Plan to go in Hongkong next year. This video help me.

wang leung chow · July 29, 2019 at 3:01 pm

Everybody! Besides shopping, don't miss the precious countryside of Hong Kong, over 80% of HK are still green (under 20% contents in promotion). I suggest (Tai O in Lantau island, Bo Tau O at Sai Kung, Tai Tam Reservoir at HK island and Lamma island), also all the Hong Kong walking trails are especially good for you. And… nobody knew that HK has the most precious toys collectors in the world.
