Hong Kong Highlights

One of Life's Must-See Places

If you have not not seen Hong Kong you have not seen Hong Kong

Day One: Ride the Star Ferry

Private transportation from the airport to Kowloon or Central Hong Kong by ultra high speed train (tickets and instructions included). If you arrive early in the day, take a stroll in any direction and encounter a cross-section of Hong Kong's colorful history, from colonial-era facades and sky scraping architectural fantasies, to neon-splashed canyons of commerce and housing developments. Our local guide is available to join you for dinner and introduce you to the local gay scene tonight or on another night during your stay (Friday or Saturday nights are busiest),

One of favorite Hong Kong highlights will be  the fabled Star Ferryfrom Hong Kong Island over to the Kowloon side of the harbor to ogle the electric fantasia of Hong Kong Island's skyline. gay nightlife on Hong Kong Island orbits the outrageous Lan Kwai Fong entertainment district where you can hop onto the world's longest escalatorfor a ride up to the gay bar area in Central or the international restaurant district of Soho.

Day Two: Your Personalized Itinerary With Our Private Guide.

Instead of breakfast at the hotel (which the hotel does not include anyway), why not sample fresh steamed dumplings or noodle soup at a local fresh market or restaurant? From 10:00 in the morning until 6:00 your guide will show you the sights and will suggest an itinerary to match your personal interests. We recommend that first-time visitors see some of the following places....

Many first-timers will want to head up to the top of Victoria Peak, via the vertiginous Peak Tram, to the highest spot on the island for incredible views of the city and harbor. Antique aficionados will love to poke around Hollywood Road in Central,

A thrilling double-decker busride down the winding road to the other side of the island will take you to idyllic Repulse Bay and the fishing village ambience of Stanley Market, with notable colonial-period buildings sprinkled here and there. Hong Kong is a visual feast for fans of modern architecture,

And nearly every visitor's favorite activity, shopping, may be enjoyed almost anywhere you go, from the trendy boutiques and galleries of Soho and Central to old-fashioned mercantile bazaars.

Hong Kongers love to have yum chafor lunch -- dim sum du jour with pots and pots of tea. Your guide can suggest some places to try local flavors depending on the area of the city you are exploring or try one of the gigantic floating seafood restaurants docked in Repulse Bay.

Wong Tai Sin Taoist templeis always lively, often with hundreds of people making simultaneous offerings of fruit, incense and other spirit-foods heaped on newspapers spread on the grounds. Locals also come here for sage advice from a wide variety of fortune tellers who have set up shop in an arcade at the front of the temple. Afternoon tea at The Peninsula is another popular day-end activity.

If you have visited Hong Kong before, another option is to travel by ferry to one of the nearby islands. On these automobile-free islets you can see a slower, quieter side of daily life in South China and sample some of the best seafood around.

Day Three: Stay Longer or Find Another Adventure?

Extend your stay another day to visit the fabulous old Portuguese enclave of Macau. Otherwise, explore Vanishing Hong Kongin the morning or enjoy the free time until your departure for the airport for flights onward,

A quick taxi ride takes you to the train station in either Kowloon or Hong Kong Island. Your airport check-in desk is just a few steps from the curb. Collect your boarding pass on the spot. Leave your luggage with the airline's check-in desk and you won't have to touch it again until you arrive at your destination. It's the perfect ending to a fun visit to Hong Kong.
