If you have a tight schedule, this will be a big help for you. We divided the tourists spots by location for your planning convenience.

We also use a star rating system (1-5) to show their importance. The more stars, the more significant for you to check out that place.

Do remember that places or attractions on this page are not the only places for you to travel in Hong Kong. There are many more. It is just for your condensed tour only.


Hong Kong Island


1) The Hong Kong Victoria Peak ***** - one of the highest points on the island to overlook the Victoria Harbour

2) The Jumbo (Floating Restaurant) ***** (coming soon link to the Jumbo Floating Restaurant page)

3) Horse Racing Court in Happy Valley *** - Horse racing season is during the winter months.

4) Junk Boat Ride ***** It's available either in the Hong Kong Island or the Kowloon Peninsula.

5) Hong Kong Western Market ** - An Edwardian building used to be a wet market and preserved to be a historical building with some mom-and-pop stores selling cloths, restaurant and so forth.

6) Shun Tak Centre ***** This is the place where you will board the hydro jet to go to Macau. (coming soon link to Shun Tak Centre - Traveling to Macau page)


Hong Kong Tour of Chi Lin Nunnery

Chi Lin Nunnery



Kowloon Peninsula


1) Chi Lin Nunnery ***** - Was built without using a single nail.

2) Nan Lian Garden ***** - A Showcase of Traditional Chinese Landscaping in the 7th Century.

The above 2 Hong Kong attractions are right across the street from each other. They were built with the Tang dynasty's (618-917 A.D.) construction methods. The buildings are built of wood without a using any nails. There are no buildings like this in the world, except China. (These 2 are the MUSTS for any Hong Kong attractions tour, in my opinion.)


Hong Kong Tour of the Giant Buddh

Hong Kong Giant Buddha



The New Territories


1) Lam Tsuen Wishing Tree * - This tree has been visited by many people. It has had tons of wish-making paper and oranges hanging on the tree. But it literally doesn't exist anymore.



Outlying Islands


1) The Buddha***** - Any Hong Kong attractions tour must include this beautiful spot.

2) Ngong Ping 360***** - While you are visiting the Giant Buddha, may as well to take the opportunity to check this out.  These 2 Hong Kong attractions are next to each other.

3) Hong Kong Lantau Island Tour**** - If time is allowed after the tour of the Giant Buddha and Ngong Ping 360, check out the Tai O Fishing Village; see if you have any luck to say hi to a Chinese pink dolphin and look at the Tsing Ma Bridge, the longest suspension bridge in the world.

4) Lamma Island (and Lamma Wind)**** - One of the most popular Outlying Islands.

5) Cheung Chau**** (coming soon link to Cheung Chau page)

You have to come here to feel that Hong Kong elements in Halloween.  It is definitely very different from the Halloween in other countries.
