Hong Kong has recently opened itself back up to quarantine-free tourism, and so there has never been a better time to visit this rich and luxurious city in East Asia. With so much business flowing through the city, in addition to its rich and interesting history, it has become one of the major tourist destinations in the region.
Hong Kong is considered to be a special administrative region of China, and so it enjoys a higher level of economic freedom than other parts of the country. For this reason, the city has a very different feel and experience than other cities throughout China.
Many international businesses have based their headquarters in the city state for decades now. Also, many billionaires, such as the one featured here, call Hong Kong home.
In this article, we’ll look at six of the best attractions to see while you’re in Hong Kong.
1. Victoria Peak
Victoria Peak is considered to be one of the best tourist destinations throughout the entire Hong Kong special administrative region. Many tourists hike to the top of this peak or take a tram up to the peak. At the top, you can enjoy stunning views of Hong Kong including their central business district, Victoria Harbor, and Lamma Island, and other surrounding islands in the area.
If you’re interested in booking a day trip to Victoria Peak, you should check out this tour listed on TripAdvisor that offers everything you need to get to the peak and see the views.
2. Tian Tan Buddha
Also known as Big Buddha, this 34-meter-high statue is a spectacular tourist attraction on Lantau Island, Hong Kong. Completed in 1993, it is a major center for Buddhism in Hong Kong in addition to being a major destination for tourists visiting Hong Kong.
The statue is open to the public from 10:00 to 17:30 local time, and access to the interior of the Buddha statue will require an admittance fee. If you’d like to access more information about the park and statue, you can view information on this webpage.
