DAY 01 arrive in Hong Kong

You will either fly or take the train into Hong Kong, and upon arrival at wither the Hong Kong airport or train station you will be met and picked up by your English-speaking guide. Hong Kong has developed from a small fishing village in the 1800s into a dynamic and thrilling 21st century cosmopolitan metropolis. The city is replete with impressive high rises, a busy harbor and it is an important financial and economic center.
Hong Kong is a fusion of many cultures. Remnants of its colonial past of British culture and values share space with the Chinese tradition. It's amazing to notice the gray Confucian temples edging against the western style churches. The traditional Chinese festivals such as the Spring Festival and Moon Festival are celebrated along with Christmas. Chinese opera and Canto-pop Music lead a peaceful coexistence. Hong Kong is a land of ferocious contrasts. Beneath the ornate exterior of impressive the skyline and lighting-paced lifestyle beats the heart of old Hong Kong. CEOs, entrepreneurs light joss sticks at home and worship in front of a Buddha in temples for good luck and wealth.
After being picked up, you will be taken to your hotel, which will be located in the heart of the downtown area You will have the rest of the night to unwind and unpack from your travels.

DAY 02 Hong Kong (B, L)

Following breakfast in the hotel we’ll get started on your sight seeing with a visit to Hong Kong Island. Hong Kong Island is the center of the city in terms of economy, politics, entertainment and shopping. Northern Hong Kong Island is the main commercial, shopping and entertainment area; the residential area is located in Eastern Hong Kong Island; and Southern Hong Kong Island known for its seashores and bays.
At Hong Kong Island we will head to all the major attractions that have made the city a worldwide tourist destination. During your day’s tour to Hong Kong Island you will visit the following:
Aberdeen Harbor:
Aberdeen is the largest town on Hong Kong Island outside the main urban area, and the harbor was famous as the place where the Hong Kong boat people lived in the 1960s and 1970s. Movies such as a James Bond movie and a Bruce Lee movie were filmed there, so the harbor is recognized worldwide. Now, the harbor area is mainly an anchorage for the yachts and pleasure boats of the Hong Kong suburban dwellers in the area. But there are still some famous floating restaurants and local fisherman using the bay, so it is a place to go for seafood on a boat and to see the scenery and the area tourist destinations like Hong Kong Ocean Park.
Ocean Park:
Hong Kong Ocean Park is a marine park/amusement park/animal laboratory/zoo combination. So while you can watch amusing dolphin shows in the poolside public stands, there is a serious research program for breeding and care of animals going on in the same area. The park's laboratory was the first to artificially inseminate and breed a bottlenose dolphin. The park is large enough to require several means of mass transit. It is divided into the Waterfront section and the Summit section. The rides are among the best in the world, and the animal exhibits including both land and water animals are world-class.
Victoria Peak:
Victoria Peak is the highest peak in Hong Kong Island with an altitude of 554 meters and has been considered as a landmark of the island. It is the best spot to have a bird's eye view of the Victoria Harbor and the whole thriving island. Viewed from the peak, the scenes are different between daytime and night. At daytime, you can see high and crowded buildings and the busy Victoria Harbor.
After our time on Hong Kong Island, you will be taken back to your hotel, where the rest of the evening can be spent at your leisure. But Hong Kong really comes alive at night so you might want to check out some of the districts that are renowned for their bustling and exciting nightlife. There are three districts in Hong Kong that are famous for their entertainment spots. The first is Central where most expatriates and trendy locals go to after work, especially in the areas of Lan Kwai Fong. The second is Wan Chai, which includes nearby Causeway Bay with its many bars and discos that open till dawn. The third is Tsim Tsa Tsui in Kowloon where there is a distinct difference between bars exclusively for locals and those that appeal more to tourists.

DAY 03 Hong Kong (B, L)

Today we will be venturing to another one of Hong Kong’s islands, and today’s tour will be to Lantau Island, the city’s largest (and least inhabited) island. Lantau also contains the best natural beauty in the city, as the island contains mountain ranges as well as pristine beach land. Our first stop on Lantau Island will be the Po Lin monastery, as well as the Ngong Ping plateau.

The main distinctive feature of this Buddhist temple is the Po Lin Monastery itself (which is a very active monastery still in use), as well as the very large Tian Tan Buddha (34 meters tall) that was constructed of bronze plates with an internal with an internal supporting framework. The statue is one of the largest depictions of the Buddha in the world. The monastery also serves a delicious vegetarian meal, which is what we will have for lunch.
The Po Lin Monastery and the Tian Tan Buddha both sit on a plateau called Ngong Ping, which is 520 meters high, giving you great views of the island. To reach the plateau, we will take a tram. There are three kinds of tram we can choose from. Most think that the glass-bottomed one is the best choice because of the view it affords.

We’ll then proceed to Tai O, a little place sometimes called the "Venice of Hong Kong," though it is just a little village with many houses built on stilts over water. People get to their houses by walkways or by boats. In the markets, you can find some of the local catch and buy salted fish or shrimp paste. There are many stalls selling dried sea products close to the bus terminal and ferry terminal area.

After your tour of Lantau Island, you will be taken back to your hotel for the night. You might want to take advantage of Hong Kong’s incredible shopping. As a free port, most goods from all over the world are custom-free except wine and cigarettes, and they are sold at relatively low prices. In addition, every year there are lots of season promotions and sales which are indeed great bargains. Therefore, all customers can get content service when they go shopping in Hong Kong. For the more adventurous, there are scores of local and street markets, where bargaining is the name of the game.
