1 Star Ferry

The crossing from Tsim Sha Tsui to Hong Kong Island is the cheapest harbour tour on earth – and one of the most spectacular.

2 Harbour view from the Peak

At dusk, watch the city’s dazzling lights brighten across Hong Kong, the harbour and Kowloon.

3 Sai Kung Peninsula

Get away from the crowds and concrete, amid beautiful seascapes, beaches and wild countryside in this often overlooked corner of Hong Kong.

4 Ngong Ping 360

Amazing vistas of Lantau’s coast, mountains and Big Buddha on this cable-car ride from Tung Chung to Po Lin Monastery.

5 Dim sum

Tuck in to an authentic dim sum lunch alongside enthusiastic families – try the har gau (prawn dumplings) and barbecue pork buns.

6 Old Macau

Seek out forts, beautiful Portuguese churches and former Chinese mansions among Macau’s narrow alleyways and cobbled civic squares.

7 Coffee, tarts and port

Thanks to Macau’s Portuguese heritage, most cafés and restaurants serve ink-black coffee, delicious custard tarts and port wine – almost unknown elsewhere in China.
