    Visit during the day if you prefer a quieter visit - While night offers the best views, it does get very busy so you may need to queue. The views are spectacular though! Worth the wait! Those in wheelchairs get priority access.

    We visited Lantau island in October.
    Our main destinations were,
    Tian Tan buddha
    Ngong Ping Village
    Wisdom path
    Tai O fishery village
    Fu Shan View Point
    Cheung sha beach

    We started our journey as early as possible. We arrived to Tung Chung around 10.30am. From MTR we walked pass through the bus terminal to the other side to take bus 23 to go to Ngong Ping Village. Wisdom path is also located in Ngong ping village. We covered all these areas within like 2hrs and took the bus No 21 to Tai O. Gets down at the last stop and keep walking through the village to and the trail path to Fu shan view point. It was a very sunny day there is no cover on top. We didnt spend much time there and we came to Cheung sha beach. You can take anybus that comes to Tung Chung from Tai O but you have to ask the bus driver to stop the bus to get off and the bech.

    There are many promotion deals for Sky 100 during Covid-19 lockdowns, and with a much reduced tourist presence it is actually an excellent chance to enjoy the great view offered. We went during a week day afternoon, enjoy the sunset sipping tea and then caught the splendor of the city with all its lights before leaving. There were very few people there and so we got to roam around and soak in the views to our hearts' desire. Note however it is not easy to get good photos due to all the reflection from the glass. Also pick a day with good visibility if at all possible.

    A friend of mine recommended to go and visit this place. I am not a practicing buddhist but I am surprised that there is a certain calmness of mind during meditation inside the nunnery. There are also some rock artifacts and plants showcased upon entering where there are philosophy/quotation on it. There is also a nearby park. It is easy to find this place. Must try!

    What a find. The 10.000 Buddha Monastery is a true and wonderful experience. One has to climb steps to reach the main temple but is rewarded by the view of the lined up monks on the way. There are seats provided along the climb. Once you reach the main temple, you look at 10.000 Buddhas all lined up. There are larger size monks, other buddha sculptures as well a pagoda which no closed to climb up because of the coronavirus. You shall be at inner peace and enjoy the splendid surroundings of Shatin. There is a gift shop that sells refreshments too. One can climb up further to see more of stone carved generals and other female sculptures. To sum it up, sensational. If you are in Hong Kong for a longer time, go there. It is free and one has to strike it off one's bucket list.

    The Tsim Sha Tsui promenade is where the Kowloon Peninsula meets Victoria Harbour in Hong Kong. Here you find a fine stretch of waterfront that starts at the Star Ferry Pier and runs east along what is known as the Avenue of Stars and stretching past the newly opened Victoria Dockside.

    Here you will find heritage attractions such as the Star Ferry and historic Clock Tower. Along the Avenue of Stars you will be able to learn a bit about Hong Kong film history while checking out the neat installations, seating benches and art space created outside and within the new K11 Musea.

    There are monuments including the Hong Kong Films Award statue and the famous Bruce Lee statue that are popular for visitors. This is also where you find the Hong Kong Museum of Art (HKMOA), Space Museum (currently under restorations) and the Culture Centre, where performances are held throughout the year.

    Lastly, you will be rewarded with lovely views of the harbour and the world famous Hong Kong Skyline which is remarkable to see on clear sunny days as well as most nights when the skyline is lit up brightly for all to enjoy. There is a nightly laser light show called the Symphony of lights begins at 8pm. Most impressive are annual fireworks shows over the harbour that can be viewed well from the Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade. A Particularly impressive show is held with the annual Chinese New Year holiday.

    An interesting choice. I think if you're from Hong Kong, it's definitely worth a trip, but if you're visiting on a holiday and you have limited time, not sure it's worth the trip.

    A lot of the value of coming here is to contextualize how far/different Hong Kong is now compared to its roots. There are a couple of nice things to buy here, including some traditional ingredients like seafood and shrimp paste. It is also connected to several hiking paths.

    My suggestion would be to come in the winter.

    BTW the most common way to get here is to go to the Tung Chung MTR station, then take the giant bus that everyone is lining up for.

    Sai Kung has long been a popular place for residents and tourists enjoying the laid back seaside atmosphere, promenade, boat trips and alfresco dining scene. However, it has become something of a street art scene in recent years as well.

    The HKWalls annual art event was held in Sai Kung in May 2021, as part of this event, quite a few of the building walls were brought to life with interesting artworks. You can find many of them around Man Yee Square and the buildings nearby. If you are into street art, walk around this square and take some back alleys to see what unfolds upon the walls you pass by.

    Stanley is a seaside community on the southern side of Hong Kong Island. When the British took possession of Hong Kong in 1841, there was a community of over 2,000 people living here. The Chinese name for this seaside village area is Chek Chue. However, the British gave it the English name after Lord Stanley.

    Today what you find at Stanley is a relaxing place to spend time near the sea. There are a couple of good beaches, St. Stephen's Beach and the larger Main Stanley Beach which also has a water sports centre. You'll find one of HK's most popular street markets, the Stanley Markets, which has a covered walking lane, nice for rainy days. There is a nice promenade area lined with restaurants and good views of the sea. Additional shopping and eateries can be found at the Stanley Plaza complex just past the promenade.

    Those interested in historical attractions in the area will find the old Tin Hau Temple just past the Stanley Plaza. There is a tiny Tai Wong Temple sandwiched between the Plaza and waterfront restaurants. The colonial period Murray House and Blake Pier, both of which were originally in the Central district have been relocated here to Stanley, providing a bit more to see while you are here. The Murray House is used for yet more restaurants and retail shopping.

    Looking for a bit more, there is a large public park and garden area called Ma Hang Park just west of the Murray House. Nearer to St. Stephen's Beach, you will also find the Stanley Military Cemetery and Hong Kong Museum of Correctional Services.

    To visit Stanley from the main areas of Hong Kong, best to take a bus (6, 6A, 6X or 260) from Exchange Square in Central or a taxi to save time.

    Starter with Italian Creamy Burrata with heirloom Tomato which is quite appetizing And the display is attractive.

    Grilled Spanish Duroc pork cutlet portion is big. And the taste of the pork cutlet was on average.

    Grilled U.S Beef Sirloin only have three pieces. It is definitely not enough for a man portion. But the taste was delicious.

    It was surprised on their Phenomenon Tiramisu. I love that utensil using for Tiramisu . The taste a bit too sweet.

    Over all, lunch in here with very reasonable price and nice interior design. You can see a cyber design of their corridor to the washroom.

    We were fortunate to visit this temple during the Lunar New Year because there was so much activity to comprehend. Worshipers ask for guidance with their issues and problems and make offerings. Also, many seek vision from the fortune tellers in the area. The music, chanting, incense and lanterns all add to the scene. The grounds are also stunning. This temple deserves a visit any time of the year.

    Mongkok is a bustling district where Hong Kong's youthfulness, energy and creativity collides with old school culture, buildings and markets. It is a thriving district that is packed with crowds of all ages going about their respective lives and leisure interests.

    There are numerous street markets scattered around Mongkok, one that I like is the Nelson Street Wet Market found on the west side of Nathan Road and Langham Place shopping mall and situated between Tong Mi Road (west) and Reclamation Street (east).

    Nelson Street is lined with vegetable, fruit, meat, seafood, sundries dealers. You'll find loads of delicious fresh food as well as peculiar finds including fresh tofu blocks, thousand year eggs, Chinese medicine packs, frogs and other things you will rarely if ever see in western wet (food) markets.

    The market is under large red umbrellas offering shade during midday when the sun is out. Still better to go from mid to late morning (9.30am) when stalls are stocked up and at their best for pictures. The trade-off is that the street can be packed with shoppers at this time of day as well.

    In the end, you can actually traditional wet markets all around Hong Kong. If you are in Mongkok and interested in seeing one, this is a convenient and fun one to visit. Otherwise, it is rather easy to find good options elsewhere around the city as well.
