Hong Kong Skyline at Night
Ride up Victoria Peak
Victoria Peak is one of the most popular attractions in Hong Kong. From the top there are breathtaking views of the Hong Kong skyline with towering skyscrapers. You will also see the famous Victoria Harbour, and lush green hillsides.
Travel up to the top on the Peak Tram which is pulled by steel cables. The steep 45 degree climb is 1,200 feet and enjoyable every foot.
Tsim Sha Tsui
Hong Kong is a shopper’s paradise. Tsim Sha Tsui is one of the most popular ones. Although crowed at every turn, everything is orderly.
The Park Lane Shopper’s Boulevard is popular with the younger crowd for fashionable clothing. To shop for cosmetics you can go to the stores in Granville Road and Harbor City.
If you like movie starts consider visiting the Avenue of the Stars. It is similar to the one in Hollywood and has some of the stars of Hong Kong inlaid into the avenue surface.
Other sites worth considering are the Hong Kong Space Museum and the Tsim Sha Tsui Beach (best at night with neon lights making it a colorful spectacle).
Madame Tussauds Hong Kong
Madame Tussauds has more than 100 amazing wax likenesses of stars, world leader and sports heroes. There are five themed settings that are spread over three floors with appropriate background sounds. Shoot hoops with Yao Ming, putt with Tiger Woods and dance with Aaron Kwok.
