Places to Visit When In Hong Kong 2

So I had to cut the first blog because truly, there are just too many places to visit in Hong Kong! I was so lucky to have the best tourist guide for this travel. ๐Ÿ˜€

Well, before anything else I must say I also enjoyed the rest nights at Rambler Oasis Hotel after a whole day of looong walks!

We were up about the Hong Kong Big Bus Tour and where this bus could take you. First, this bus offers a sightseeing tour that reveals the cityโ€™s rich blend of Chinese and Colonial history. They will provide earphones where you would be able to hear the history of the place the busย is passing through.ย Itย offers the most extensive route that willย take you to more tourist attractions where you just have to hop-on and hop-off of it on certain spotsย where you could also be picked up by another Big Bus in around 30mins so you could continue your tour and get to another tourist destination. Isn’t that amazing? ๐Ÿ˜€

Hong Kong’s popular street food I really enjoyed!

First stop, the Peak Tram! This is operated on behalf of the Hong Kong Government. It is a 1.4 kilometre funicular railway connecting the Central district of Hong Kong with the Peak.

This Tram took us to the energetic Victoria Harbourย that could be one of HK’s lifeline.

Next stop, the Sky Terrace 428 which is theย highest viewing platform in Hong Kong that offers a stunning 360-degree panoramic view across the city.

They will provide an interactive touchscreen audio where you can listen to in 6 languages and give you a good exploration of Hong Kong’s architecture and culture.

You can feel theย refreshing breeze at the top of Hong Kong as you express your love on a wishing card and hang it on a giant heart.

Whether you visit The Peak in the morning, afternoon or nighttime, The Sky Terrace 428 is a scenic spot that you should not miss!

Ticket Price: (When not on Big Bus Tour) HK$83/PhP500

There were lots of places we still weren’t able to drop by to because we had other plans during the night. But visiting the Repulse Bay is a must especially for lovers.

It is a crescent-shaped stretch of sand in one of the most beautiful beaches in Hong Kong.

This sun-drenched Repulse Bay has a relaxed resort-like feel that makesย both locals and visitors find itย great for strolls in the early morning.

Other places we weren’t able to drop by with the Big Bus Tour were Man Mo Temple, Soho and Stanley Market.

Ticket Price: (Big Bus Deluxe Tour) US$56/Php2,600

But we did get the chance to go to Mong Kok where you can find cheap items to shop for pasalubong, like our very own Divisoria.

Same day we checked out Central still using our MTR tickets.

The streets smell like perfume and British were all over the place.

There are lots of bars here and I tried out some Chinese Beer. ๐Ÿ™‚

To end theย 7-day adventure with the love of my life, we took the Harbourย Bauhinia Cruise to see the romantic night of Hong Kong.

Food was great and the breeze was freezing cold! We visited HK at February and the temperature was 10 degrees.

Travel with your loved one when you have the time and opportunity. Spending quality time with each other away from the busy work is always great to keep the love alive.

Go travel!
