Hong Kong constitutes 263 islands which are divided into 3 major regions – Hong Kong Island, Kowloon Region, and New Territories. Since the islands and peninsulas are located at the mouth of the Pearl River Delta, it’s been known by the nickname Pearl of the Orient. A gem of a destination for tourists too, since it has to offer many interesting attractions for all age groups!
Ngong Ping 360, Lantau Island
Located on Lantau Island, Nong Ping offers a spectacular cable car experience. To begin with, tourists board the cable car from Tung Chung Cable Car Station in Lantau and enjoy the bird’s eye view of the Hong Kong International Airport, the Big Buddha of Tian Tan, the beautiful Lantau Island, and the Ngong Ping Plateau. Once they arrive at the Nong Ping, they will get to see the marketplace. Later they can visit the ancient Po Lin Monastery (founded in 1906), and then travelers can visit the large bronze Tian Tan Buddha (also known as Big Buddha) which is a sight to behold. For those who would like to explore local villager’s life, then you can recommend them to take a quick look at the steel houses of Tai O Fishing Village. Overall a worthy day trip from the main island of Hong Kong.
Victoria Harbour & Victoria Peak
Tsim Sha Tsui Waterfront on Victoria Harbour offers a stunning view of the city skyline and the Harbour. “Symphony of Lights” is a show that can be enjoyed in the late evening – the spectacle of lights played by the building facing the Harbour is a remarkable show to watch. People who wish to get excellent Instagrammable photos should be suggested to visit the Ocean Terminal Deck which offers 270 degrees of incredible views of superb sunsets and is located in the vicinity of many restaurants & shops. Hong Kong Observation Wheel is located on the Central Harbour Front and offers breathtaking views of the city through the day and the night. Victoria Peak is a 1350 meters high hillock that can be reached via funicular ride. The funicular ride began operations in the year 1888 making it one of the world’s oldest functional Public Trams. The tram ride spans just about 8 to 10 minutes and the bird’s eye view one gets from the tram and from the peak is absolutely magnificent.
The Hong Kong Disneyland
The Disneyland of Hong Kong is as outstanding as any other Disney. Now Hong Kong Disney has varied stay options. If your clients are traveling with their young children who would be interested in exploring more of Disney, then it is best to suggest they stay overnight at Disney for at least one or two nights. The multiple hotel choices which people can choose from at Disney are “Disney Explorers Lodge, Hong Kong Disney Hotel, and Disney’s Hollywood Hotel”. And if any of your clients are looking for the best destination wedding options, “Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings” is a wonderful choice. Besides the theme park, it has so many other recreation options like live entertainment, events, the characters’ parade, shopping, dining and so much more.
The Ocean Park
This iconic theme park in Hong Kong is not just for children, but for all ages, and the fun & frolic it has to offer is totally diverse from what Disney has to offer. Travel Agent Tip: It is totally ok to include Disneyland and Ocean Park for your clients as they have completely different experiences at both parks. It is heartening to know that the park also focuses on the conversation of nature and the wildlife species inside their park. That means you can add this particular option for your clients who are environment-friendly. They also have “Ocean Park Academy” which constitutes various educational programs for students and all age groups. Giant Panda Discovery, Red Panda Keeper, Penguin Encounter, Dolphin Encounter, Meet the Little Merkeet, Meet the Sea Lion, and Meet the Walrus are some of the experiences the park offers under the “Interact with Animals” theme.
