One Day Hong Kong City Tour

One Day Tour Star Ferry - Victoria Harbor - Victoria Peak - Peak Tower - Avenue of Stars - Shopping on Harbor City - A Symphony of Light - Temple Night Street Market
Victoria Harbor
A perfect day tour in Hong Kong should be with a nice start - Dim Sum, a traditional Cantonese breakfast. No matter where you stay, Hong Kong Island, Kowloon side or New Territories, you can easily find a Dim Sum restaurant nearby your hotel. A good idea is to ask your hotel staff for suggestion.

After breakfast, you can leave for the Victoria Peak, one of the highlights of this one day Hong Kong city tour. If you stay in Kowloon, just take the Star Ferry from Tsim Sha Tsui to cross Victoria Harbor. This is a Hong Kong icon and a must-do experience for travelers. The fare is HK$2.5 in weekdays and HK$3.4 during weekends. Traveling time to Hong Kong Island is roughly 8 to 10 minutes. In order to enjoy the best view of the harbor and the impressive skylines, you would better stay in the upper deck.

Upon arrival at the Central Pier, you can take bus 15C to the Peak Tram Lower Terminus on Garden Road, where you board the Peak Tram up to the Victoria Peak. Ticket charge: HK$32 for one way and HK$45 for round trip to the Victoria Peak. The tram ride takes around 7 minutes. Please take the seats on the right side when you going uphill to make sure that you enjoy the beautiful view and take photo at the best angle. Once on the top, you will see the Peak Tower, one of the most stylish architectural icons in Hong Kong. Inside the Tower, there are many restaurants, shops and entertainment areas. On the top floor, it is the Sky Terrace 428. With its outdoor 360 degree viewing deck, it is the best place to enjoy the magnificent views and skylines of Hong Kong. The combo ticket of the Peak tram and Sky Terrace 428 is HK$77 for the single way and HK$90 for the roundtrip.
Peak Tram
After that, you might want to take a break and have lunch in the Peak Tower. Please be aware that the food price in the restaurants on the top is much higher than in the rest of Hong Kong. You may take the tram down and take bus 15C to the Star Ferry Terminal. Just opposite the Terminal, it is the IFC shopping mall, where you could have lunch.

Afterwards, take the Star Ferry back to Kowloon and visit the Avenue of Stars nearby the pier. In the Avenue, you will not only see more than 100 different handprint plaques of local movie stars, including Bruce Lee and Jacky Chen, but also enjoy Hong Kong's skylines by walking along the Victoria Harbor. (Note: The Avenue of Stars has been closed for repair and it is expected to be completed around the end of 2018.)

Continue your independent tour to the largest shopping mall in Hong Kong - the Harbor City, which is just several minutes walking from the Star Ferry Terminal. If you are not interested in shopping, you may turn to the nearby Hong Kong Art Museum or Hong Kong Space Museum. Do not miss the starting time of A Symphony of Light at 20:00 daily. This spectacular multimedia show of light and sound lasts for about 13 minutes, which involves more than 40 buildings on both sides of the harbor. The show is free for public enjoyment and no admission ticket is required.

Hong Kong is one of the most famous sleepless cities in the world. You should not miss the unique and delightful nightlife there. If you are not too exhausted from the trip, you may consider visiting the Temple Night Street Market. It is a popular street bazaar, packed with shopping stands, restaurants, fortune tellers and opera singers. The market opens everyday at about 18:00 till the midnight.

Actually, I would suggest you arrange the sightseeing in HK on your own as the cost in this city is quite high. It is very easy for you to explore by yourself with convenient transportation there. You can make use of the time to visit Victoria Harbour or Victoria Peak, but it may take a while to queue up for the cable car to the peak. Alternatively, you may also visit Ngong Ping 360, which is not far away from the airport.

Hi, the octopus card can be used in all the transporation in Hong Kong. You can take airport bus to the hotels, which is the cheapest way. For other questions, I'm sorry that I can not give you the details, but I found a good page. There is many information about Hong Kong.

You can stay at hotels in Kowloon. Find one is near the MTR, which is very convenient for you go sightseeing in Hong Kong. How about the night cruise on the Victoria Harbour? Or visit pubs, bars, nightclubs at Lan Kwai Fong, or eating local snacks at night markets?
