- I went two times. The first time I spend 7h inside the museum and I didn’t read all the the documents! We’re entering on the down of earth and leave in the after recession of Hong Kong. You must take your all day for appreciate this museum. So much to learn! Every room is a new experience. Every times I have friends or family coming in HK, this is a must go!Written December 6, 2020This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- When I have the time to take it slowly I take the tram. They rattle, don't appear to have much in the way of suspension and can get crowded. If possible I go up stairs and sit in the front. During summer with the windows open there is a nice breeze.Written June 9, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- Watching a live horse race has long been an indispensable part of any Hong Kong trip. Even for non-gamblers, the racecourse itself is very enjoyable. Penfold Park, a lush open space with pleasant greenery and lakes, is a perfect weekend respite. The peaceful environment and panorama are unparalleled in the city. It is also one of the few pet-friendly locations. When fed up with the urban bust and crowd, this will be a lovely option.Written November 8, 2021This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- The Hong Kong Science Museum is one of best family attractions in Kowloon. It is located along Science Museum Road just across from the Hong Kong Museum of History in TST East. Opening hours are 10am to 7pm (weekdays) and 10am to 9pm (weekends), closed on Thursdays. Entry fee is HK$20 per person (free for children under 4).
The museum is spread out over 4 floors and includes 5-6 themed areas around Natural Science, Earth Science, Climate, Motion, Magnetism, Sound and Light. There is a Palaeontology themed gallery under preparation presently that will open later in 2022.
Within the various galleries there are over 750 exhibitions, over 500 being interactive and children friendly, providing several hours of interesting activities, hands-on activities and learning experiences for the little ones. There is also a 4-storey, 22 metre tall Energy Machine as well which can be viewed and enjoyed from all levels when it has been activated.
The Science Museum has a gift shop on the ground floor and a small seating area with a handful of tables and drink machines. Otherwise, there are no eateries inside. The good news, you are just a few minutes away from quite a few casual and fast-food restaurants and coffee shops at the Science Museum Path at New Mandarin Plaza just south of the museum.
In short, the Hong Kong Science Museum is a fun place for families, especially during the hot summer months when trying to avoid the heat and rain. It is a good venue for anyone looking for air-conditioned place to spend a few hours, entertaining children as well as adults with a general interest in science.Written June 24, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- HK Buddy LINE chat is my best companion in HK. They are amazing. I am really excited to talk about their support during my tough times in Hongkong. They were acted like a friend, a guide and a reliable source. They supported me from my arrival to this day. Love you guys!!!
When i arrived at the airport the tourism desk gave me a pouch full of interesting items including a tourist SIM card.Written January 26, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- Harbour City is a huge collective shopping space occupying the lower level floors of several large buildings along Canton Road between the China Hong Kong City building and the Star Ferry Pier. It includes 2 million sq. feet of shop space sprawling through the Ocean Terminal, Ocean Center and Gateway Arcade. Opening hours are around 10am to 10pm daily.
This mall is massive and takes hours simply to walk the full floor space. There are around 450 retail shops, 70+ restaurants and eateries, an art gallery, observation deck and two hotels. It is also directly connected to the cruise terminal.
In recent years, Harbour City has become a favourite venue for mainland Chinese shoppers. At times walking the halls of the mall has felt daunting due very crowded conditions often found here. However, at present as the city deals with the Coronavirus outbreak and the lack of tourists in the city, Harbour City is rather quiet, making for much more relaxed visits and shopping for local Hong Kongers.
Worth note that Harbour City regularly decorates the mall front facing the Star Ferry Pier with interesting seasonal and holiday decorations. More decor is usually found within the mall interior but out in front of the Star Ferry Pier is where you find the best. Related, presently, there are several works by the French urban artist Invader scattered around the Harbour City properties. Just keep your eyes peeled for his signature pixelated video game characters (ie Pacman and Space Invader) found inside and outside the mall.
Note: You'll find a list of the businesses with shops and restaurants at Harbour City on their website.Written March 17, 2020This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- Tai Kwun has probably been Hong Kong's very best revitalisation projects to date, making superb use of the historic Central Police Station, Victoria Prison and Central Magistracy situated along Hollywood Road for the purpose of heritage preservation and fostering of local arts and culture. It is mostly free to the public to enjoy throughout the year and a place well worth visiting from time to time.
First and foremost, this is a collection of declared monument buildings which have been restored and repurposed with several permanent exhibitions (Story-telling spaces) related to the former Police Station, Prison and Magistracy. The old Parade grounds are regularly used for large scale events and new buildings such as the JC contemporary art museum have been added to provide more performance space. There is some retail shopping available and a surprisingly good collection of restaurants, bars and coffee shops within.
You can pick up brochures, map and other general information from the Visitor Centre as well as by visiting the Tai Kwun website. Many events require reservations but the museum and permanent exhibitions can be viewed at any time. Easy to pass by for a quick 30 minute walk around while spending time in the Central District or allow for 2-3 hours to walk through the various historical buildings, see whatever art exhibitions are being held and to grab a light bite to eat at one of the food and drink venues at Tai Kwun. This can make for a rewarding experience for those who enjoy history, architecture, heritage, arts and culture.Written April 24, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.

- There is presently a very good special exhibition - Tsar of All Russia - Holiness and Splendour of Power that is being held at the Hong Kong Heritage Museum in Sha Tin until 29 Aug 2021. The exhibition features 170 sets of exquisite treasures from the Moscow Kremlin Museums that are well organised and displayed in 6 gallery rooms. Museum opening hours are 10am to 6pm (daily) but closed on Tuesdays.
The exhibition requires special ticket (HK$10 per person). Note the permanent exhibitions and other special exhibitions are free to the public to visit. Items include relics, ornamental pieces, original maps of the Kremlin and paintings of the Royal Tsars. They are unique and attractive and well described by English and Cantonese signage and information. There is also free wifi at the museum so you can access a mobile audio guide describing a handful of the exhibition highlights. Allow 30-45 minutes to browse this exhibition.
You can visit the Hong Kong Heritage Museum website to learn about the various permanent and temporary exhibitions before making your way. Note they also have a small eatery called The Alchemist on the ground floor for those who want a drink and/or snack and chance to take a rest in between exhibition visits at the museum.Written August 15, 2021This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- Made my first visit of this year yesterday. Sure had tons of fun meeting my favorite celebrities! Had little trouble with the rotating pinkish blue overhead lighting above most of the displayed figures. Other than that it was worth the visit. Staff were very friendly as usual.
Two wishes I've at the moment is if the displays could be used with just one type of overhead lighting and inclusion of refreshments outlet within the visiting area even if it's limited with bottles of plain water. I spent nearly 5 hours inside starting from the opening hours and desperately wished for a drop of water to drink....
Will definitely visit again, awaiting the arrival of Manny Pacquiao!Written October 2, 2020This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- IFC is a luxury and high-end shopping mall in Central District that has an interesting Orient Express themed Christmas decoration programme for the 2021 holiday season. There are a few smaller displays scattered around the mall. However, the main display area is found in the oval atrium area.
What you find here is a make-shift train station with ticket collection booth, platform as well as a train engine and carriage car. Some history of the Orient Express exhibited at the back of the station for the history buffs.
Overall, this is a pretty good change of pace from the traditional Christmas themes and decorations they've done in past years. It is worth a look-see if you plan to be at IFC between now and the end of the holiday season.Written December 16, 2021This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- This high-end luxury mall features many designer stores & great restaurants. It is conveniently accessible by many of the luxury hotels, like Upper House & JW Marriott. For Goyard lovers, this one of 2 locations of Goyard Stores in Hong Kong.
There are lots of food options at this mall, but our favorite was Dim Sum Library, located on the ground level.Written November 5, 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- Michael is great! He goes above and beyond with what works best for your physique and his input his spot on as always.
Also, very polite and makes sure you are fitted with what will work best on you.
Went it with a thought of buying a single suit ended up with two suits and three formal shirts:)

- A MUST visit when coming to Hong Kong! The unsuspecting name does not reveal the true importance and value of this museum. It describes vividly the more than 300 years of trade between the West and China - especially the European trade with China via Hong Kong. We can learn that there is nothing new to this world - todays trade and relationship issues and mutual benefits for both worlds have not much changed in principle - all that changed is technology and media. We can learn from this museum that trade between the western world and China is mutually beneficial since hundreds of years - so we can truly relax a little bit in our overexcited times and refrain from getting carried away with the different political systems in place. It's does not matter on either side - Let's learn a bit from history and how we are in the end all just humans who want to have a decent good life ! this museum is very educational and teaches is us daily life in the "old times" and you will be surprised how close it is to the "new times" that we live in. Spend 2 hours there BUT GO ON WEEKENDS when volunteers are there to explain you details - otherwise you will not capture the essence of the trade history and how it relates to today's world. THE guides are very knowledgeable and competent and extremely friendly and helpful. A privately run Museum - my respect.
Absolutely worth a visit.Written December 12, 2021This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- Quite small but worth a stop. On Hollywood road, this tiny temple built in the 1800s has hundreds of beautiful coil incense burning over your head. It’s quite different from the other temples in Hong Kong. There are often a lot of Chinese tourists but if you go earlier in the day, it will be less busy.Written January 11, 2020This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
