Hong Kong is a glamourous city filled with fun and exciting things. It is also known as the largest shopping hub in Asia. However, there’s a great deal more to Hong Kong than just shopping and street food. Here are some unique things you can try in Hong Kong.
There are over 50 beaches in Hong Kong and the surrounding islands. Usually, crowds are drawn to the shopping centres and buzzing city life, so these are often missed. You can catch great waves for a surf, have a relaxing campfire or even lounge in the sun on the beautiful beaches here.
The Symphony of Lights
One of the best things to do here is attending the symphony of lights. It is the world’s largest permanent light and sound show. This synchronised display of colourful lights can be seen touching skyscrapers and portrays the diversity of Hong Kong through colours and music.
Junk Boat Ride
Chinese junk boats are motorized vessels that provide a unique way of admiring the city’s impressive skyline. A tour of one of these should not be missed when you’re here. Junk boats often offer dining facilities and even bars and theme nights for a truly unique experience.
This is where all the locals go on Wednesday nights. The Happy Valley Racecourse has a lively and energetic atmosphere that surely recharges even the dullest of weeks. It’s only a 12min drive from a budget hotel in Hong Kong such as the popular hotel Dorsett Mongkok, so if you’re in the area be sure to pay a visit.
