Tour itinerary

Day 1

Hong Kong, Chungking Mansion, Victoria Harbor, Night life on Temple Street

We arrive in Hong Kong and check into the famous Chungking Mansion in the city center. This iconic place resembles a beehive, and The Economist magazine compared it to the Star Wars spaceport cafeteria. Many famous films were shot here, for example, Wang Kar-wai’s Chungking Express. Intrigued? Mansion consists of many small family-run hotels with tiny rooms, restaurants of all cuisines of the world, workshops and currency exchanges. 

After some rest we walk to the Victoria Harbor. The financial heart of the world is just across the strait - on the neighboring island of Hong Kong. We observe how the forest of skyscrapers is glittering with neon lights and enjoy the famous light & fireworks display. Another attraction is right under our feet - the Avenue of Stars of Hong Kong cinema. Can you find the starts of Jackie Chan and John Woo? 

Next - Temple Street, one of the most bustling night areas of the city. Shops, bars, fruits, all kinds of restaurants. Let`s choose one for our first dinner!

Day 2

Tai O fishing village, Big Buddha, Ngong Ping 360 cable car, The famous dim sum restaurant

In the morning we take a ferry to Lantau Island and get into a completely different Hong Kong - we are in the Tai O fishing village. Everything was changing, getting crashed and rebuilt around this village, but life in this part of the city seems to have stoped. There is not a single building above two floors, and the village is surrounded by jungles and deserted beaches. 

Many people here still live in wooden houses on stilts on the water and move around in motorboats. We will ride boats and walk the streets of the village to see the life of local residents. Walk in small shops, enjoy the lunch of fresh seafood on the grill. Be sure to try the snails in soy sauce and the original cold drink from hibiscus flowers. 

We take a bus to another part of Lantau Island and arrive to the Big Buddha, the symbol of Hong Kong. 268 steps - and we stand at the feet of a statue 34 meters high, behind which there is a monastery. We descend down by the Ngong Ping 360 cable car. From the booth we observe planes landing and taking off, spiers of skyscrapers, ships heading to the largest port in Hong Kong, and right under our feet we see the jungles and rocks. 

In the evening we visit the famous dim sum restaurant. It boasts the prestigious international quality mark - a Michelin star and is known as the most affordable restaurant with a Michelin star in the world. We'll have to stand in line for a bit, but it's worth it!

Day 3

Business districts of Hong Kong, Funicular to the Victoria Peak, Wong Tai Sin temple, Nan Lian garden and monastery

In the morning we take a ferry to Hong Kong Island - the very business district, the financial heart of the world. We immediately find ourselves among the endless glass skyscrapers. We walk to the funicular, which has been working here for more than 120 years. It takes us to the Victoria Peak - the famous peak, which offers an amazing view of the whole city. We get down by bus, passing through the richest districts of the city. Red Ferraries and Lamborghinies will drive next to our double-decker bus, and huge villas with swimming pools will flash by the windows.

We go to Cat street - the former street of thieves, where the most famous antiques market is located now, and then we return to the continent to visit the Wong Tai Sin temple. Observe prayers and offerings of the locals. They bring fruit, meat and lard, vodka, burn incense and pray. Many do not resist the temptation and go to the street future tellers next to the temple. Playing cards, glass balls, lines on the palms and calculating numbers - local predictors can do it all! 

In the evening we walk in the garden at the Nan Lian garden. The park around the monastery is quite small, but everything is thought out to the smallest detail and, to the sound of water and birds singing, you forget that you are in the middle of a huge metropolis.
