Hong Kong, Hong Kong travel tips

Top Tips view all
1 If you have a sweet tooth, be sure to visit Dundas Street in Mangkok, and you'll find stall after stall of sweet confections.
2 Even in a city as congested as Hong Kong, there is still an opportunity for hikers to stretch their legs. Follow the Hong Kong Trail, which will take you from the island's highest point to its lowest point.
3 Music lovers: the Hong Kong Chinese Orchestra is a must-see on your trip.
4 For one of the trendiest bars in the city, check out Phonograph, which hosts regular live music.
5 Don't be afraid to use the public transport system. Hong Kong's is one of the best and most efficient in the world.
6 You'll find that large shopping malls abound in Hong Kong. But don't forget to stop at some of the small, independent boutiques to see work from Hong Kong's young, up-and-coming designers.
7 To see the work of Hong Kong's young, up-and-coming artists, be sure to check out Osage Kwun Tong, or the Cattle Depot, which was once a slaughterhouse but is now an artists' commune.
8 For an escape from the city and a bit of a rustic experience, try clamming in the village of Shui Hau. Clam digging tools are available for rent and it's very secluded.
9 There are several waterfront promenades that offer beautiful views of the skyline. Tsim Sha Tsui is generally a little overpopulated with tourists, so if you prefer a less crowded locale, try West Kowloon Waterfront Promenade.
10 Don't feel the need to tip, as it's not customary in Hong Kong. In upscale restaurants, it could even be considered offensive.
