    Due to land scarcity in the city, the only option is to build up. Thus the high rise buildings for residential and commercial uses came about. During the day, it is nice to walk along the promenade and watch the skyline; much better after sun set when it gets cooler and buildings got lighted.

    Spectacular Chinese garden next to Chi Lin Nunnery. The garden here is beautiful and meticulously maintained which examples of various plants, ponds, bonsai, rocks, traditional wood craft and joinery, etc. It is large enough to be worth the trip, but not so large that it would require an entire day to see. It is easily paired with the nunnery right across the street for a day or half day outing. Also a great place for some unique gifts and souvenirs.

    I was here for the night view and light show, the view are nice but not worth to wait for the light show at all.
    Anyway, walking along the harbor was great but a bit crowded if you want to take a good photo.

    The Chi Lin Nunnery was a very surprising highlight to our trip. I thought it was be interesting to go, but it was absolutely stunning and probably somewhere I would go back to over and over. It was incredibly peaceful and tranquil. The buildings and grounds were immaculate and beautiful.

    Was a lovely hike with some really amazing views. 3h and finishing at Big Wave Beach which is well equipped for a nice swim: Changing rooms and showers all there. Toilets available at start, middle and finish of walk. At Big Wave beach take the bus to Shek O. Is 1 stop and terminus. Either get out for a walk in Shek O or hop on again to go back to MTR

    spent an afternoon on TST via metro. first stop was K11 mall MTR J2 exit. it's a very artsy mall, can take nice pics. medium to high end shops. has an outdoor terrace area with views of the harbor. right outside the mall is avenue of the stars. lots of people there as well even at peak afternoon hours. other places to visit in TST is Harbour City/Ocean Terminal (there's a Cheesecake Factory in there), a really huge mall compared to K11 which is on the small side. There's also Elements Mall which i did not visit.

    We came here on a drizzly Monday morning, so it was very quiet. There are Buddhas lining the whole pathway up to the lookout point, where you can pray or just relax in the calmness. At the top, there is a statue of a Buddha dedicated to your year of birth. Free to enter and only a short walk from Sha Tin MTR station.

    In all the years I've been going to Mongkok I only visit the Tung Choi St area because that's where the night markets are. But those markets have long been dead and you can't get the same deals as you could have 25-30 yrs ago. Fa Yuen Street was a new discovery. Went there for Mee&Gee but was pleasantly surprised to find many stores beside it that sold the same cheap branded overruns. There was also a busy market - like the night market except at day time. Full disclosure I have no idea if that street market is there daily. We went on a Sunday and it was mass chaos. So many Indonesian maids on their day off, it was both fun and hectic. Maybe better to go on any other day than Sunday. Fa Yuen Street is a must for cheap shopping. It's waaaay better than Granville.

    Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade is where the Avenue of Stars sits on, and it is along the Victoria Harbor. Most people come here for the Symphony of Lights show at 8pm.

    We came during the Christmas season and loved that almost all shops facing the promenade put up their own little Christmas lightings. Felt like a street of Christmas light-ups, and something more to see other than the skyline + laser show + handprints.

    During 2023 Christmas, Dior's Christmas tree and carousel definitely stole the limelight!

    The Monastery is next to Big Budha and is worth visiting. Absolutely fantastic decor, with several courtyards and temples. When we visit it is practically empty, which made the visit very pleasant. The interior of the temples is beautiful. Of particular note is the Grand Hall of Ten Thousand Buddhas absolutely fabulous

    we took bus 21 from Ngong Ping village to the Tai Po. Tried the 20mins dolphin sightseeing boat ride at HKD 40 and managed to catch a quick sight of the white dolphin.
    We walked around the street near the canal and tried the many local snacks.
    Going back to Hong Kong central was another long ride on the public bus and transfer onto MTR.

    Our family of two adults, a 9 year old and a 6 year old visited here during the busy Chinese New Year holidays.

    It's a fun park in the heart of Kowloon accessible along Nathan Road. We entered at Park Lane and exited by the mosque en route to the Star Ferry terminal.

    We enjoyed the exhibits along the way and it's great to let young children run around (inside the park) in such a busy city. Enjoy!

    Made the ferry trip to walk around the fabulous island with excellent views of HK Island. Restaurants are a little pricey but the quality of stunning. The beaches are fine but views are marred by the power station. Enjoyed seeing the water homes where families live in the harbour. Can get rather hot so be warned!

    The place is quite nice and there's free entrance. The place is a bit too turistic though. Remember to see the garden since it's quite nice.
