 Hong Kong Island

HK Island, the heart of the city, is the center of economy, politics, entertainment and shopping. Two days is usually enough for visitors who want to see the main attractions on the island. From the Central District to Causeway Bay in northern part of the island is the main commercial, shopping and entertainment area; the residential area is from Tin Hau to Chai Wan on the eastern part of the island; and southern part of the island is the recreational area, where visitors can enjoy the natural beauty of the sea shore and bays.

 Kowloon Peninsula

Kowloon Peninsula, which links HK Island to Chinese mainland, offers yet another view of this exciting part of China. It’s encircled by the Victoria Harbour on the east, south and west sides. As the same as the HK Island, Kowloon is an indispensable part to form the prosperous downtown area. Allow at least one full day to experience its sparkling delights, including Tsim Sha Tsui, Yau Ma Tei and Mong Kok. The Star Ferry can be both inexpensive and romantic. For shutterbugs, a ride on the ferry provides the optimum angle from which to snap fantastic views of the harbor.      

 The New Territories and Outlying Islands

The New Territories covers the most area of Hong Kong. It's made up of two parts, including the land connecting with the Kowloon Peninsula and the 223 outlying islands. In the past, the New Territories was once fairly rural, undeveloped parts of the city, and there are still many areas where visitors can see villages that have remained unchanged for centuries. Today, Shatin and Tuen Mun in the New Territories and Tung Chung on the Lantau Island are well-developed.

Where can I see the dragon boat race in Hong Kong? Is it easy for wheelchair users to go?

Answered by Molly from CANADA | Jun. 02, 2019 20:26

It is not a all-year round race. Recently, it will be held during June.14 to June.16 and you can see the performance in central waterfront. There will be large crowds at that time so I think it might be not suitable for wheelchair users.
