Itinerary

Recommended for:
City | Food & wine | History & culture | Short break

The most important commercial centre in the East, Hong Kong has always been a significant city. Once the last outpost of the British Empire and now a shining beacon of the booming People's Republic of China, it is a city that's constantly on the move.

Explore the bustling waterfront with its towering buildings, uncover treats in the traditional night markets on the Kowloon Peninsula and scale the steepest funicular in the world to Victoria Peak, making this much more than a city break destination.

Day by day itinerary

Day 1
Hong Kong

Arrive in Hong Kong, be met and transferred by private car to your hotel before enjoying an evening at leisure. We recommend you take the Peak tram up to Victoria Peak as a great introduction to the city, with spectaular harbour views.

Part of a mini mountain range, Victoria Peak, or simply The Peak, is a dragon’s back that undulates east-to-west along Hong Kong Island. It’s here that the diplomats of the Empire built lavish houses and residences, drawn upwards by the exquisite views and milder temperatures found at 500 metres. Looking north, there’s a dramatic drop down to Central and superb views of Hong Kong’s famous skyline, its manic harbour, Kowloon and somewhere in the distance, the rest of China - although even post-1997 classic China feels a long way away. The Peak Tram, a funicular railway that carries passengers up the steep slopes to the top, is an institution in itself, having been around since the end of the 19th century. It’s a great trip to take at sunset, for as the light begins to fade you’ll witness Hong Kong’s skyline transform into a forest of neon and light.

Day 2
Hong Kong

This morning, join a group tour to Lantau Island, stopping for lunch at Po Lin Monastery and visit the Big Buddha. In the evening we recommend you make your way to the Kowloon Harbourfront to take in the Symphony of Lights.

Lantau Island is the largest island of the region, bigger even than Hong Kong Island. Its green peaks, surrounded by quiet coves and pleasant beaches, are a far cry from the markets and mayhem of Hong Kong and Kowloon. At the centre of the island are the Po Lin Monastery and the Tian Tan Buddha, separated from each other by 268 steps and the thick fog of incense. It’s well worth the walk as the Big Buddha, as it has become affectionately known, is one of the biggest in China and overlooks the wider region from its lotus flower throne.

Day 3
Hong Kong

Take a morning cruise of Victoria Harbour, followed by some bargain hunting in Hong Kong’s shopping districts.

Day 4
Departure

Transfer to the airport at Chek Lap Kok for your onward flight.

If you’ve more time...

Hong Kong is a terrific stopover destination. It makes a great extension at the start or end of a tailor-made trip elsewhere in China, other parts of Asia, as well as, Australia and New Zealand.
