2 Days Self-guided Tour in Hong Kong

Day 1 The Peak - Madame Tussauds Hong Kong - Aberdeen Fishing Village - Repulse Bay - Stanley Market - Lan Kwai Fong
Night view from Victoria Peak
After breakfast, you may go to the Peak Tram Lower Terminus on Garden Road first and then take the Peak Tram uphill to the Victoria Peak. The lower Terminus can be reached by MTR (Central Station Exit J2) if you stay in the Central. If your hotel is in Kowloon, you may take the Star Ferry from Tsim Sha Tsui, across the Victoria Harbor to reach the Central Pier and then change to bus 15C to the Garden Road. The Star Ferry ticket is HK$2.5 in weekdays and HK$3.4 during weekends. The ticket fare of Peak Tram is HK$32 for one way and HK$45 for round trip.

Once arrival at the Peak Tower, you may have a bird's-eye view of the Victoria Harbor, Kowloon Peninsula and Hong Kong Island. The vantage point to enjoy the magnificent views is the Sky Terrace 428, on the top of the Peak Tower with an altitude of 428 meters above sea level. You have to pay the admission fee of HK$50 for the viewing deck. Otherwise, you may consider enjoying the views from The Peak Galleria where the admission is free. Inside the Peak Tower, you will find the Madame Tussauds Hong Kong, where you will see more than 100 wax figures of celebrities. Furthermore, you are able to find various dining options inside the Peak Tower.

After that, take the Peak Tram down and walk to the Exchange Square Bus Terminal in Central, where you could take bus 70, then alight at Aberdeen Pier. Walk along the harbor to trace the past fishing village. The rustic lifestyles of these people have remained more or less untouched by modernity, which serves up a sharp contrast to the luxury skyscrapers. You will then move on to the Repulse Bay by bus 973. It is one of the most beautiful beaches in Hong Kong. Stroll along this sun-drenched beach and get a feel of relaxed before heading to the Stanley Market. Bus 6, 73, or 973 can take you to the quaint Stanley village. This market is actually a picturesque warren of lanes, and famous with its enormous selection of goods selling at reasonable prices. After shopping, you may have dinner at the nearby eateries along the breezy seaside strip.

Afterwards, you may take bus 6X, 6 or 260 back to the Central. It may take more than one hour. If you are not tired from the whole day trip, you may consider going to Lan Kwai Fong to experience the night life in Hong Kong.
Day 2 Wong Tai Sin Temple - Victoria Harbor - Hong Kong Art Museum - Avenue of Stars - Harbor City Shopping Mall - A Symphony of Light
Stanley Market
This morning, you may take the MTR to Wong Tai Sin Station, Exit B2, and walk for about three minutes to Wong Tai Sin Temple. This traditional Chinese temple is also called Sik Sik Yuen. Over here you will see loads of local people come here for praying a good fortune. Its natural setting and beautifully ornamented buildings make it also a good scenic attraction. Two-hour is recommended for visiting this temple and its rear garden. Then you reserve the trip back to Tsim Sha Tsui to enjoy the beautiful Victoria Harbor in daytime. Along the waterside promenade, you will see the Hong Kong Museum of Art and Avenue of Stars. These two places are closed for renovation now and expected to reopen in 2018 or 2019.

The nearby Harbor City Shopping Mall could be a paradise for shopping lovers. It is Hong Kong's largest mall with mind-boggling selections of shops. There are also a huge food hall and many restaurants. Enjoy your shopping time and do not forget the time of "A Symphony of Light". The grand light show starts at 20:00 daily and lasts about 13 minutes. It offers you a gorgeous night view of Victoria Harbor.
