Hong Kong is an incredibly diverse, fascinating, and even paradoxical place. As rural as it is urban, and with as many temples as it has skyscrapers, Hong Kong – which is actually made up of over 200 islands – is a unique blend of Western and Eastern cultures. No wonder then, that it’s very hard to decide the things to do in Hong Kong from the myriad of possibilities.
The distinctive character of Hong Kong is perhaps best encapsulated by its impressive collection of world records and achievements. For example, it consumes more than triple the annual global average amount of tea; has the world’s most affordable Michelin star dishes, at less that $2; oversaw the sale of the most expensive bottle of wine ever ($232,692); uses Feng Shui to dictate the appearance of and positioning of many of its building; and is home to the world’s Largest Permanent Light and Sound Show, “A Symphony of Lights”.
But with so much to see and do, we’ve listed the top ten things to do in Hong Kong that no visitor can afford to miss.
