Below, are just a few of the many incredible; sites, attractions and tours I enjoyed during my short period of time in the city. Certainly ones I would highly recommend you include in your visit as well. 😎

h3>Hong Kong In Three Days – Complete City Guide

Day 1

Big Bus Tours

Big Bus Tours Hong Kong

Without a doubt, for first time visitors to Hong Kong, taking 🚍 Big Bus Sightseeing Tours – 🚏 Hop On/Hop Off Double Decker Tour Bus, is the best way to see all the major attractions and sites in and around the city limits.

I began day one by riding most of the day with 🚍 Big Bus, getting 🚏 off and on at many of their major stops on their extensive routes on; Hong Kong Island.

Victoria Harbour Hong Kong

There are 3 different bus routes offered, so I highly recommend grabbing their; deluxe 2 day package, as there is so much ground to cover. Especially if you want to hop on and off the bus at the many attractions along the way, as I did.

The deluxe package also includes admission to various major attractions and ⛴ Star Ferry tickets as well. A great bargain and an equally great way to enjoy the city at your own pace!

The Peak Tram

The Peak Tram

On this tour package, I chose; 🚃 The Peak Tram Railcar Ride up the mountain, to experience a breathtaking view of the city. In existence now for over 120 years, this attraction is the most popular in the city, and the 360 degree views at the top are incredible!

Hong Kong In Three Days – Travel Guide 

SOHO District

After a long day enjoying my relaxing 🚌 bus rides and ⛰ The Peak, while still on Hong Kong Island, you simply must venture into the; SOHO District. This is your entertainment district filled with; 🍹 bars, restaurants, shopping and much more!

SOHO District Hong Kong

The name SOHO comes from (South of Hollywood Road). There’s lots of excellent open air bars, where you can relax and enjoy a 🍺 beverage. As well, you’ll find restaurants galore to enjoy a great meal.  

I had a fantastic dinner at a lovely and well decorated family operated restaurant, serving amazing; Moroccan Cuisine. What a great way to finish Day 1 in Hong Kong! 🙂



Take A Guided Walking Food Tour

Day 2

Courtyard Marriott Hong Kong Sha Tin

After enjoying a an amazing buffet breakfast at my beautiful hotel the …

🏨 Courtyard Marriott Sha Tin Hong Kong,

I made my way to the waterfront in the district of; Tsim Sha Tsui. This is where I hopped aboard my final ride on 🚍 Big Buses third route, which is on the mainland side of Hong Kong.

On this route, the bus tour will take in the sites of Kowloon and much more.

Kowloon Park Hong Kong

After my ride on the bus, I then took a peaceful 🚶 walk through downtown’s famous 🏞 Kowloon Park. This is a beautiful park where you can take a stroll, or just sit and escape the hustle and bustle of the city for awhile.

From here and for you shopper lovers, you simply must visit; 🏬 Langham Place Shopping Centre. This is multi-level upscale shopping mall, located in Hong Kong’s {Mon Kok} district nearby. You can shop till you drop and enjoy a number of cafes and restaurants in the mall as well.

Hong Kong Shopping Mall

In the early afternoon, I was excited to join my first 🏬 walking food tour in the city. Without having lunch, I was eager to start sampling some favorite local dishes!

Hello Hong Kong Food Tour Group

This has to be one of my most favorite things to do when traveling to new destinations around the world. I love sampling the local cuisine, in new countries that we visit.

I had the pleasure of taking two; Foodie 🚶 Walking Tours during my stay in the city. Taking a guided food tour is the best way to taste some excellent local dishes, at establishments that are highly regarded and frequented mostly by locals themselves. 

Your professional guides will explain in detail, each dish that you are sampling and the history of each establishment visited. As well, you’ll receive a complete guided tour, as you make your to each restaurant you will be visiting.

Hong Kong Open Market

If you love sampling local dishes, then you will absolutely love these two professional tours that I was fortunate enough to take part in.

Hong Kong Travel Review

Victoria Harbour

A great way to spend a few hours is to make your way back down to the {Tsim Sha Tsui} district waterfront, located down by the ⛴ Star Ferry Terminal.

There’s another excellent shopping mall next to it and a lovely promenade, where you can also watch the famous waterfront; “Symphony of Lights” display, held each evening.

Victoria Harbour Hong Kong

I’ve included the official🌺 Discover Hong Kong website link and direct page to the Symphony of Lights below for your convenience.  You can view much more information on this major attraction held in beautiful {Victoria Harbour} each evening at 8pm.

Sail On The Dukling – Chinese Junk Boat Tour

Day 3

Dukling Chinese Junk Cruise

On day three, I started my morning meeting my group to start my second Foodie Tour with {Eating Adventures}, located on Hong Kong Island. It was an early start to my day, no breakfast and catching the ⛴ Star Ferry to make the crossing over to the island.

My food tour and guide was absolutely outstanding! I can’t recommend enough for you to take a walking guided food tour, no matter where you may travel to.

It was then on to take a leisurely relaxing harbour cruise on an original {Chinese Junk} fishing vessel, named the; Dukling. What a nice relaxing way to experience a piece of history and enjoy a scenic harbour cruise at the same time.

You can board the vessel on either side of Victoria Harbour. It’s a fun ride and a great way to beat the heat and grab some of that fresh sea air breeze!



Smooth Ride Bike Tour

Smooth Ride Bike Tour

For those of you who enjoy eco-friendly tours as much as I do, then taking a late afternoon 🚲  bicycle city tour with; Smooth Ride, is a great way to experience parts of the city you might otherwise miss.

This fun and informative guided bike tour will take you to many historic parts of the city. Finishing up along the waterfront in time for great sunset pictures of the city and harbour.

Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car

Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car

If you have the time or want to juggle things around, then I highly recommend taking the 🚈 MTR rapid transit out to {Lantau} and catch the 🚡  Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car, up to the; World’s Largest Big Buddha Statue.  

The 5.7 km 🚡 cable car journey is worth the ticket alone!

The views are incredible, as you slowly make your way up the hillside riding the 🚡 tram to; Ngong Ping Village.

Tian Tan Buddha Hong Kong

At the top of the tram, you will enter the main village square. It’s a little touristy, but you enjoy a snack or meal and do some souvenir shopping as well.

From there, you make your way to world’s largest Buddha Statue – Tian Tan Buddha. What a remarkable site, set among the beautiful hills of Lantau Island.

This is a definite must see attraction!

Note:

Ngong Ping 360 as you can imagine, is an extremely popular and busy tourist attraction. I arrived just before the gates opened at 9 am, with no waits whatsoever. 

So go early, if you want to avoid the arriving tour 🚍 buses and crowds!

I went non-stop from morning to evening, trying to see as much as I could in the few days I had in the city. Hong Kong is definitely a “People Mover” city. I have never traveled to any other city in the world, where getting around was never so easy as in Hong Kong!

Hong Kong Rapid Transit

From their immaculate 🚉 rapid transit system, 🚍 city transit buses to the fun – 🚃 Ding Ding rail cars, getting around most anywhere is; simple, quick and very affordable.

When you arrive at the ✈  airport, get yourself a convenient 💳 Octopus Card, at one of the kiosks. They’ll load your card for you, and your on your way!

Hong Kong Octopus Card

Numerous shops and restaurants also accept this 💳 card for your convenience, so you don’t have to keep looking for money all the time!
