Classic Hong Kong

Though small in surface, Hong Kong has a wealth of activities and sights waiting to be discovered. This four day itinerary takes you through the streets of Hong Kong Island and Kowloon District, where you will discover the locals’ lifestyle. Foodies will be spoilt for choice as you savour divine dim sums and other local delicacies.

A holiday to Hong Kong would be incomplete without a stroll up The Peak and a shopping spree!

Day 1: Arrival into Hong Kong

Upon arrival into Hong Kong, you will be transferred to your accommodation, The Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong.

The remainder of the day is at leisure. You can choose to relax at the hotel and admire the unrivalled views of Victoria Harbour or roam the streets of Hong Kong. We recommend an afternoon of fun at Hong Kong Disneyland, a visit to Lantau Island, a stroll at Victoria Peak or a visit to Madame Tussaud’s.

Stay: The Ritz-Carlton

Day 2: Traditional Hong Kong Island City Tour

After a traditional breakfast in a local street café, explore the old streets of Western and Central District: the picturesque Man Mo Temple, Dried Provisions Markets for its exotic foods, then The Peak for its incredible views.

For lunch, feast on roast goose at Yung Kee Restaurant, before heading to Aberdeen, an active fishing harbour. There, you can ride in a Sampan, a traditional boat.

Later on, visit the old colonial outpost of Stanley and its interesting market

Day 3: Kowloon District Tour

Across from Hong Kong Island, lies Kowloon, which you will explore during the day. Start off your visit at the Chinese Nam Liam Gardens and nearby Chi Lin Nunnery and then Wong Tai Sin Temple.

Later in the morning, explore Jade Market, known for its ornaments, necklaces and trinkets from the revered green stone. Lunch will be at Tim Ho Wan Restaurant (the cheapest Michelin Star restaurant in the world).

In the afternoon, head into the heart of the Kowloon Peninsula, and experience local, urban Chinese lifestyles then make for Shanghai Street, the city’s oldest street, where you can enjoy a local “afternoon tea” at the famous Mei Do Restaurant.

Finish off the afternoon by walking along the Avenue of Stars Promenade for a superb view of Hong Kong’s skyline.
