First up, we will take you to the highest point in Hong Kong, Victoria Peak (elevation 552 meters) via the world-famous Victoria Peak Tram, which has operated for more than 112 years as one of the world’s oldest funicular railways. You will have the opportunity to walk through verdant woods to explore some of the hidden old buildings from Hong Kong’s past. Ascending to the observation deck, you can take in the sweeping views of the magnificent Hong Kong skyline and tranquil harbor views.
After descending from Victoria Peak, we will continue on to Repulse Bay. Known as the Hawaii of the Orient, Repulse Bay offers a beautiful beach along the long coastline with soft sand, clean water and warm temperatures. After a leisurely stop at Repulse Bay, we will visit the historic Stanley Market. Here you can bargain for local handicrafts, paintings and other various souvenirs, or just order a cup of coffee or have a beer at a seaside café or pub to spend some quiet time away from the bustle of the market. Later on, enjoy a visit to the Wong Tai Sin Temple and Nan Lian Garden for more relaxing sightseeing around this historic area.
After your tour, you will have the afternoon free to expore this cosmopolitan city on your own.
Afternoon sightseeing suggestions:
1) Take the world-famous Star Ferry to enjoy superb views of Victoria Harbor;
2) Explore the lively Kowloon area, where you can visit Tsim Sha Tsui, Wong Tai Sin and Nan Lian Garden.
Accommodation：Overnight in Hong Kong
This morning your tour guide will pick you up from your hotel to take you on the 1-hour drive to Tung Chung at Lantau Island – the largest of the Hong Kong chain of islands.
Upon arrival at Tung Chung, we will take you on the wonderful Ngong Ping 360 cable car to the Ngong Ping Village. Along the way you will have amazing panoramic views of the verdant surroundings, the city skyline, the Hong Kong airport and the South China Sea. Once you have landed in Ngong Ping Village, we will take you on to visit the largest Buddhist temple in Hong Kong – the Po Lin Monastery. Just a short walk from there is the Tiantan Buddha, which rises more than 34 meters (111 feet) into the sky, standing as the largest seated outdoor bronze Buddha on earth. A little futher away, within short walking distance, is the Wisdom Path, where an ancient prayer is inscribed on a series of wooden steles.
After lunch, we will take a scenic bus ride down from the Ngong Ping Village to explore the “Venice of Hong Kong” – Tai O, which at more than 300 years old still retains most of its historical ambiance with waterways, stilt houses, fishing boats and ancient fishing village scenery. After a relaxing visit to the fishing village, we will transfer by bus back to Tung Chung and then transfer back to your hotel.
