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.
