A destination where East meets West, Hong Kong represents a confluence of British and Chinese cultures. Although it is a hub for expats, Hong Kong’s Cantonese roots are still on display and best enjoyed through its cuisine. With historic double-decker trams, city-centre horse races, and a glorious harbour, Hong Kong makes for a great holiday destination. Nature and modern architecture coexist and complement each other beautifully, making Hong Kong ideal, whether you crave a city holiday or want to reconnect with nature.

Wondering what’s in store once you land in Hong Kong? Have a look at the highlights.

Old Town Central art walk

Though modern-day Hong Kong is known for its sharp skyscrapers and impressive skyline, the city firmly holds on to its roots. A visit to Old Town Central is a must. This dynamic district is an amalgamation of sloping streets and small alleys that feature century-old temples, fashion concept stores, attractive tea houses, and modern art galleries. The innumerable attractions make the district extremely exciting to explore on foot.

Tai O fishing village

Home to the Tanka people, Tai O is a community of traditional fisherfolk, who have resided here for generations and are considered to be the first settlers of Hong Kong. The area is crowded with small houses perched on stilts right above water and its narrow lanes are lined with stores selling fish and all kinds of everyday items. Apart from being absolutely riveting, this neighbourhood can be an excellent subject for photography.

Hong Kong Disneyland

If you can’t get enough of Disney’s magic, earmark a day or two to visit Hong Kong Disneyland. An extraordinary theme park, Hong Kong Disneyland is home to exhilarating rides such as the Iron Man Experience and Hyperspace Mountain as well as amazing parades and stage shows. What’s more, Disneyland also puts on a fireworks display that you’ll remember for a long time. A ticket to this magical world will cost you around Rs.5,800 per person.

Ocean Park

If you’re travelling with young children, Ocean Park is an award-winning amusement park you simply can’t miss out on. It houses 40 attractions along with an oceanarium, a marine park, and an animal theme park that sprawls over 174 football fields. An admission ticket, along with an old Hong Kong street food tasting pass, will cost you around Rs.4,300 per person.

Street food at Kowloon

Many believe that the culture of a city can be best discovered through its cuisine and Hong Kong’s lip-smacking street food is testimony to this. Hong Kong’s streets are peppered with canteens and restaurants serving authentic Cantonese cuisine and Kowloon is an excellent neighbourhood to enjoy this. In fact, you must take this opportunity to visit Tim Ho Wan, one of the world’s most affordable Michelin-starred restaurants. This no-frills eatery may not be as glamourous as other Michelin-starred restaurants, but its dim sum and buns are the best in the city, and a meal for two will only set you back around Rs.2,000. Other areas that you can explore to satiate your hunger are Yau Ma Tei and Mongkok.

While there are innumerable attractions and activities to fill your days in Hong Kong, it is one of the most expensive cities in the world. This means that you must have a generous budget to do justice to the destination, without cutting corners. Since round-trip flight tickets alone cost around Rs.37,000 for one, you can make traveling more budget-friendly by availing a personal loan for travel from Bajaj Finserv.
