A Weekend in Hong Kong

A Weekend in Hong Kong

Traveling to another country is one of the most culturally jarring yet personally pleasing experiences one can have. The important thing is to get the most you can out of every opportunity. A weekend in Hong Kong affords plenty of opportunity to try something new, so make sure not to miss some of the best attractions!

Food, Food, Everywhere
For a combination of lunch and attraction, head to Victoria Peak for a gorgeous view of the skyline and harbor and then get some grub at The Peak Lookout only a few minutes away, which boasts of delicious seafood. For a 60’s style dining restaurant, take a stop at Mido Cafe for a tasty bite and an old-fashioned interior. But if you want to get a true taste of Hong Kong, spend some time in the Lin Heung Tea House for some authentic Chinese relaxation untouched by modernization or tourism.

Shop ‘Til You Drop
Spending an evening shopping at the Temple Street Night Market, settled in the center of Kowloon for 5 blocks, you can enjoy the very “Chinatown-esque” atmosphere with barters and hawkers and all of their merchandise. But if you prefer shopping that’s a little more contemporary, how about a stop at the IFC Mall? Make your rounds on its waterfront location, picking up the souvenirs you like, and then finish with a meal on the rooftop so you can enjoy the gorgeous view.

Art and Adventure
You can enjoy a gorgeous Heli-Tour of Hong Kong when you visit the Peninsula Hotel and take a ride on one of their China Clippers. And of course it’s typical to take in a cultural afternoon, so make sure to stop by the Museum of Art to admire the gorgeous pottery, or perhaps plan a trek to the domed Space Museum for a more techy experience.

From trying a taste of authentic Hong Kong food and beverages, to enjoying some of their landmarks that they display most proudly, let your weekend experience be one to remember forever.
