A Great 3-4 Day Stop Over, With Travel Insurance of Course!
Hong Kong is fascinating and if travelling abroad – you must consider stopping over for a while. Here are some reasons why. Just remember to purchase travel insurance for the ‘just in case’ moment.
Public transportation rules
Hong Kong is no place for motorists, with about 380,000 private vehicles for a population of over seven million.
The Peak – See it all
A must see attraction. The highest point on Hong Kong Island with views of one of the world’s most spectacular cityscapes.
Ladies Market – busy
Mongkok’s Ladies Market is one of Hong Kong’s most popular street markets. Don’t let the name fool you – it caters to women, men and children of all ages. About 1km long, the market is open in the afternoon but really comes alive in the evening, and doesn’t close until after 11:00pm
Temple Street Night Market – must see
One of Hong Kong’s biggest and arguably best markets. The market doesn’t get busy until after dark, and it’s worth a visit to see the crowds and colors and enjoy some food.
Lantau Island is well known for its unspoilt countryside, lush green valleys, awesome gondola ride up to the giant outdoor Buddha statue. Another recommendation is a visit to the historical fishing village at Tai O where locals still live in stilt houses. You can take a dolphin cruise and/or just walk the streets of this marvellous village.
Lamma Island – Great Scenery
Lamma is situated only 3km off the south west coast of Hong Kong Island. You can walk from one side of the island to the other in about 2 hours and finish at a row of excellent Chinese seafood restaurants that serve cold beer and great food.
Stanley – Great Shopping & Lunch
Probably the most popular day out for Hong Kongers…Stanley Village is just a forty minute bus ride from Central. This seaside town is popular and hosts a string of markets, restaurants and bars along its waterfront promenade.
Plus there is so much more to see and do!
